N,N-Diethyl-3-methylbenzamide / DEET
I’m sure a lot of people love a hot summer and going to the woods for a bit of shade and adventure, but the pesky mosquitoes are always circling you and occasionally making out with you! The DEET-based products can help you solve this problem. DEET was developed by American scientists in the early 1950s and helps repel biting flies, ticks, gnats and chiggers. DEET is a repellent—not an insecticide, therefore it does not kill the insects and ticks that attempt to bite us. All DEET-based repellents work the same way, by interfering with the mosquito’s ability to detect carbon dioxide and specific odors that they can sense. The maximum concentration of deet is 30% , which can drive away mosquitoes for about 6 hours.
