Insecticides Though they may work to a certain extent, these methods of repelling mosquitoes may not be as safe or long-lasting. Insecticides are merely contact based solution, i.e. they only kill mosquitoes on the treated surface.
Prevent bites from mosquitoes and other insects. It has been available to the public since 1957 and is the world’s most widely-used topical agent against mosquitoes and other blood-eating insects. DEET repels mosquitoes that spread malaria, a leading killer in parts of the developing world, as well as ticks that spread Lyme disease. But it does not kill them. Until now scientists have not grasped exactly how it works.
Crazy for humans
Mosquitoes are crazy for two human scents: sweaty body odour and the carbon dioxide in breath.
They use different receptors in their olfactory system, the sensing system for smell, to detect these odours to locate their prey.
“Humans are very smelly, so there’s a large number of compounds that attract mosquitoes,” says Associate Professor Leslie Vosshall, head of Rockefeller University‘s Laboratory of Neurogenetics and Behavior. In experiments on mosquitoes and fruit flies, her team determined that DEET serves as a sort of chemical cloak, masking certain human odours.
“You become invisible to them,” Vosshall says.
The scientists tracked the electrical activity of cells in the mosquito olfactory system while exposing them to DEET.
They found that it blocked bugs from smelling body odour but not the carbon dioxide in breath.
Without the scent of body odour, the bugs cannot figure out that a succulent person is nearby, the scientists say.
