My family owns and operates Security Equipment Corporation which manufacturers SABRE pepper sprays (www.sabrered.com). I appreciate that many bloggers are now sharing proactive safety ideas. That’s a good thing. However, there is an issue with WASP spray. Wasp sprays’ labels state, "It’s a violation of federal law to use in any manner inconsistent with this label. Never Use Indoors!”
Police departments worldwide use pepper spray because the inflammatory effects of this agent work on those which cannot feel pain (VERY IMPORTANT!). The inflammatory effects of pepper spray cause eyes to close involuntarily and produce a loss of breath sensation. Pepper spray has been proven effective on deterring and incapacitating aggressive, combative, intoxicated and drug induced individuals for over 20 years.
To date, no human testing has been conducted on WASP spray and it’s a violation of federal law to use in self defense. There are many home defense pepper spray options which will deploy up to 25 feet and unlike WASP sprays, these pepper sprays do not require the user to be as accurate because their spray pattern will cover an entire doorway.
It's not a good idea to use WASP spray for home protection since it is against the law and WASP spray labels themselves state "NEVER USE INDOORS". Pepper spray is a safe, proven option which is trusted and relied upon by police officers worldwide.
