protection from the world’s smallest villains

Insect repellents are used to deter mosquitoes, ticks, and other biting insects. Diseases, such as Zika, Malaria, and West Nile virus can be transmitted through mosquitoes. Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever can be transmitted through ticks. Repellents are not meant to kill these biting insects, but to keep them away to prevent bites and the spread of disease. Ticks and mosquitoes are drawn to skin odors and the carbon dioxide we exhale. They can use heat and visual cues to find possible hosts. Repellents help to mask smell and detour insects from finding these human or animal hosts.
