After discovering that certain nerve cells respond to DEET
and other repellents, scientists looked for the receptors responsible for this reaction.
In humans, DEET
is generally absorbed by the skin and mainly excreted in the urine (Selim, Hartnagel, Osimitz, Gabriel, & Schoenig, 1995; Smallwood, DeBord, & Lowry, 1992); it has been confirmed that DEET
in the human body is metabolized via liver oxidase from an in vitro study (Abu-Qare & Abou-Donia, 2008).
When the scientists silenced these Ir40a neurons, the flies grew impervious to DEET
albopictus to human host odor in the olfactometer, in the rates of landing by female mosquitoes on skin, and in the repellency of DEET
In field studies, deet
cream has been effective for 7 to 10 hours under worst-case conditions in the Florida Everglades, where mosquitoes and other insects are numerous," Schreck says.
Hands of the volunteer treated with different concentrations of Advanced odomos cream, DEET
cream and a base cream without active ingredient (control) were introduced in different cages.
In general, the higher the percentage of DEET
in the repellent, the longer it lasts without re-applying.
To begin with, the MGK(R) insect repellent line enhances Vertellus long-standing leadership position in DEET
manufacture by adding new components like MGK(R) 326 and MGK(R) 2007 repellent concentrate to our list of active ingredients.
The purpose of this study was to evaluate 2 formulations each of SS20 and Bayrepel against deet
using volunteers acting as both treatment and their own control against Anopheles, Aedes, Coquillettidia, and especially Culex and Mansonia, the 2 most prevalent mosquito species in Kisumu, western Kenya.
The objective of the trial was to compare the efficacy of mosquito nets impregnated with mixtures of DEET
+ PM or KBR 3023 + PM (repellent and insecticide-treated nets [RITNs]) with bed nets treated with a standard formulation of a pyrethroid (deltamethrin).

The military mandates that all camouflage make-ups contain 35 percent DEET
