General description

DEET can find wide applications as an active ingredient in insect repellents, which can be used for protection against potentially disease-carrying insects and ticks such as deer ticks leading to lyme disease, mosquitoes leading to malaria, dengue fever, zika virus and west nile virus. It can also be used for protection against the condition of encephalitis inflammation.

Application

The species-specific mode of action for DEET and many other mosquito repellents is often unclear. Confusion may arise for many reasons. First, the response of a single mosquito species is often used to represent all mosquito species. Second, behavioural studies...

There are major impediments to finding improved DEET alternatives because the receptors causing olfactory repellency are unknown, and new chemicals require exorbitant costs to determine safety for human use. Here we identify DEET-sensitive neurons in a pit-like structure in the...
