Why is there a need for insect repellents?

Exploring the outdoor is a great opportunity for our children to learn and enjoy. However, whenever they are outdoors, they are exposed to elements, including insect bites. Some insects can be harmless, producing only a very mild reaction towards the bitten child, but there are certain insects; such as: mosquitoes, biting flies and ticks, whose bites can in some cases make us sick when we are bitten.

In certain parts of Asia, Africa, Central or South America, a mosquito bite can easily translate to life threatening illnesses such as malaria and dengue fever. In fact, for New Zealand locals, there is no need to look far. In the Pacific Islands alone, there have been cases of dengue fever recorded among Kiwi travellers. There were even outbreaks of dengue fever reported in North Queensland, specifically in Cairns, Port Douglas and Townsville.

What are insect repellents?
These are preparations that have become widely popular in providing protection for the body against many forms of insect bite reactions, whether local or systemic. The use of insect repellents can be very Helpful in preventing a simple skin irritation that can lead to secondary skin infection as well as life threatening diseases caused by a measly insect bite.

How does an insect repellent work?
Understanding how insect repellent works greatly depends on proper understanding of how a biting insect find their hosts. Studies on mosquito's behaviour have indicated that this particular insect use a combination of sight, heat and smell as their way of locating their prey.

They are attracted to the scents of carbon dioxide, lactic acid and other odours emitted by the skin. They also like warm and moist skin. What an insect repellent does, both chemical and non-chemical based, is to create a vapour barrier that prevents the insect from getting in contact with the skin. This the reason why most insect repellents have a very strong odour because insects find these vapour to be offensive both to their sense of smell and taste.
