Consumers are developing some concern about traditional bug sprays. They seem to be looking for alternatives and believe that natural alternatives may be safer.
New research presented at the meeting of the American Chemical Society indicates nepetalactone (pron. nep-PEET-all-ACT-tone), the oil in catnip that gives it a distinctive minty odor, is a highly effective mosquito repellent.Due to concern over mosquitoes carrying West Nile Virus, the CDC has made several new entries on their list of recommended repellents.
Previously their only recommendation was any repellent containing the ingredient DEET. Now the CDC recommends picaridin, which is a chemical, or oil of lemon eucalyptus.
Although picaridin and oil of lemon eucalyptus have been available as repellents in other parts of the world, they have had a difficult time getting a foothold in the U.S. due to the prevalence of DEET. Now, though, many may start using picaridin or lemon eucalyptus oil, which lack the unpleasant odor of DEET.
