1.DEET is a broad-spectrum insect repellent that can repel stinging flies, midges, black flies, chiggers, deer flies, fleas, gnats, horse flies, mosquitoes, sand flies, small flying insects, stable flies and lice. Mosquito repellent was developed and patented by the U.S. Department of Agriculture during World War II, and was designated as a mosquito repellent product for the U.S. military in 1946. The U.S. government applied for its use in wartime, especially in Vietnam and Southeast Asia. The World Health Organization also recommends the use of repellent products containing mosquito repellent to prevent the infestation of vector insects. It is often mixed with other insecticides, but its toxicity is enhanced when mixed with carbamate insecticides.

2.The mechanism of action of DEET is still not very clear, the earliest thought is that it relies on the deterrent odor to make blood-sucking insects smell the resistance and avoid approaching the human body, to achieve the effect of bite prevention. However, it was found that DEET can inhibit the electrophysiological response of mosquitoes to lactic acid and 1-octen-3-ol compounds and other major components of human sweat, masking or closing the olfactory system of mosquitoes and preventing Chemicalbook from identifying suitable prey. Then later, it was found that DEET acts directly on specific olfactory neurons on the tentacles of mosquitoes to produce repellent effects and does not inhibit mosquitoes’ perception of chemicals such as lactic acid, CO2 and 1-octen-3-ol. Recent studies have also found that the binding of DEET to certain molecular targets is the first biochemical step in the recognition of external substances, but these findings need to be verified by follow-up.

3.also called DEET,  N, N-Diethyl-3-methylbenzamide or diethyltoluamide, is the most common active ingredient in insect repellents. It is a slightly yellow oil intended to be applied to theskin or to clothing, and provides protection against mosquitoes, ticks, fleas, chiggers, leeches, and many biting insects.
