Controlling Mosquitoes – Repellents

Controlling Mosquitoes

Some mosquito problems can’t easily be controlled by eliminating breeding sites alone. Select one of the control options to learn more about how to fight mosquitoes on your own terms.

Repellents are your first line of defense against CDC mosquito bites. Several excellent types of repellents are available today. In addition to the standard mosquito repellent DEET, which provides excellent control for hours, picaridin and lemon oil of eucalyptus have been shown to provide good repellency. The important thing is to choose a product that you like and use it.
