Key Ingredients

  • DEET (diethyl-m-toluamide) – an effective chemical developed by the Armed Forces to repel insects in the jungle.


How does DEET work?

Most repellent chemicals are thought to work work by interfering with the mosquito's homing system. A mosquito's antennae contain a number of chemical receptors which are sensitive to different compounds, such as CO2 (exhaled by animals) and lactic acid, which naturally evaporates from the skin of warm-blooded animals.

The receptors allow the mosquitos to follow these emissions back to their source, and hence 'home in' on their prey [Ditzen et al, 2008]. However, when a repellent is applied to the skin it evaporates and masks the scent of the lactic acid. Thus, the mosquito is effectively 'blinded'. More recent research has shown that mosquitos, as well as being 'blinded' by the chemical, actively dislike the smell of DEET [Syed and Leal, 2008].
