Must contain oil of lemon
eucalyptus in the ingredients (30% or more).
Recommended repellents contain DEET (N, N-diethyl-m-toluamide), permethrin, picaridin (KBR 3023), oil of lemon
eucalyptus [p-methane 3, 8-diol (PMD)] or IR3535.
Long-sleeve shirts and long pants are recommended in mosquito-heavy areas, as is the use of DEET repellent, oil of lemon

Pervious research indicates that the most effective natural plant-based repellents involve a mixture of essential oils, such as oil of lemon
eucalyptus, citronella oil, geranial oil, soybean oil, coconut oil, neem oil, and a combination of catnip and Osage orange, combined in an oil base.
Centers for Disease Control (CDC) granted approval to two healthier alternatives to DEET--picaridin and oil of lemon
eucalyptus--for protection from mosquitoes.
Wear long-sleeve shirts and pants and use mosquito repellent containing DEET, Picaridin or oil of lemon
or eucalyptus when outdoors during dusk and dawn.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also recommends repellents that contain a chemical called picaridin or the oil of lemon
Use a repellent with DEET (N, N-diethyl-m-toluamide), permethrin, picaridin (KBR 3023), IR3535 or oil of lemon
eucalyptus [p-methane 3, 8-diol (PMD)].
government's Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, aware that many continue to shun mosquito repellent (namely DEET) despite the danger of West Nile virus infection, now recommends repellents that include Picaridin or oil of lemon
eucalyptus as active ingredients.
