Deter the mozzies

A few weeks ago I got loads of mozzy bites, usually in the later afternoon. Our gites have mosquito nets fitted to all windows, but sometimes they still get in with opening doors etc. So, I did a bit of research and found a list of known deterants. So, look for a product that contains one of these active ingredients.

  • DEET
  • Picaridin (known as KBR 3023 and icaridin outside the US)
  • IR3535
  • Oil of lemon eucalyptus (OLE)
  • Para-menthane-diol (PMD)
  • 2-undecanone
