Despite the successful and widespread use of compounds such as DEET and picaridin for disrupting biting and feeding by blood-feeding arthropods (Naucke et al.
If you can't avoid high-risk areas, you can treat your clothing with products containing 0.5% permethrin or use insect repellants that contain DEET, picaridin, IR3535, oil of lemon eucalyptus, paramenthanediol, or 2-undecanone.
Using EPA registered repellents that contain DEET, Picaridin, IR3535 or oil of lemon eucalyptus
An alternative option is Icaridin, or picaridin, a synthetic compound thought to equal repellents with 20 per cent DEET.
Use repellents that are EPA-registered containing DEET, picaridin, IR3535, oil of lemon eucalyptus, para-menthane-diol, or 2-undecanone. 
Insect repellents containing DEET, picaridin, IR3535, oil of lemon eucalyptus, para-menthane-diol, or 2-undecanone can be applied to the skin, and permethrin can be applied to clothes (especially pants, socks, and shoes).
[16] reported a significant biting protection on exposed human subjects when compared to control group in a double blinded randomized placebo controlled study, in which four repellents containing DEET, para-menthane-3,8-diol, and picaridin were applied and then biting rates were monitored for 9 hours in Senegal.
Roughly 60,000 of these compounds were very close to the chemical space of typical OBP ligands (decanal, indol, PEG6, mosquito pheromone oviposition (MOP), and picaridin); therefore, they composed a database for the next step: the receptor-based virtual screening (Figure 7).
These come in many forms, including lotions, aerosol sprays, and wipes, and can contain active ingredients such as DEET or Picaridin. It should be used on exposed skin and clothing.
Use a product that contains at least 20 percent of the chemicals DEET, picaridin or IR3535, CDC says.
When hiking in areas known for ticks, wear long sleeves, tuck your pants into your socks, and use repellent that contains 20 percent or more DEET, picaridin, or IR3535 on exposed skin for protection that lasts several hours.
Before children are going outside to play, the CDC recommends using repellent that contains at least 20 percent or higher of DEET, picaridin, or IR3535 on any skin that will be exposed.
