New mosquito repellency bioassay for evaluation of repellents and pyrethroids using an attractive blood-feeding device

The accuracy and reproducibility of the developed method demonstrate that the attractive blood-feeding device (ABFD) may be widely used for fundamental experiments in the field of mosquito physiology, for the development of new repellent chemicals and in evaluation studies of mosquito repellant products, such as anti-mosquito textiles.

Mosquito Repellents: Efficacy Tests of Commercial Skin-Applied Products in China

N, N-diethyl-m-toluamide (DEET)-based products provided the longest protection time and lower prices than other components, and the combination of botanicals and synthesized chemicals is a new prospect for eco-friendly repellents.

Update on mosquito bite reaction: Itch and hypersensitivity, pathophysiology, prevention, and treatment

Treatment of mosquito bites consists of second-generation antihistamines and topical corticosteroids, and further research on topical treatments that target neural-mediated itch is needed.

A Nanoliposomal Gel Containing Cinnamomum zeylanicum Essential Oil with Effective Repellent against the Main Malaria Vector Anopheles stephensi

The prepared prototype could be considered a natural repellent against the main malaria mosquito vector in field conditions and is suggested to be investigated against other important factors mosquitoes.

Functional Coatings by Natural and Synthetic Agents for Insect Control and Their Applications

The effectiveness of insect repellent textiles has been greatly improved through slow-release systems such as encapsulation of the essential oils and is comparable to synthetic compounds used for insect control purposes.

Biting Deterrency of Undecanoic Acid and Dodecanoic Acid Ester Analogs Against Aedes aegypti.

Fatty acid synthetic esters and structural analogs are a promising source of new mosquito repelling compounds and should be investigated further.

A Pichia biosensor for high‐throughput analyses of compounds that can influence mosquito behavior

A prototypical whole‐cell biosensor for accurate detection of mosquito behavior‐modifying compounds such as repellants is constructed by constructing a modular architecture that allows easy and efficient expansion of its detection range by co‐expressing Orco with other olfactory receptors.

Novel β-Cyclodextrin and Catnip Essential Oil Inclusion Complex and Its Tick Repellent Properties

The effective tick repellent activity of catnip essential oil and the successful synthesis of the inclusion complex are demonstrated, suggesting that β-CDs are promising carriers to improveCatnip oil properties and to expand its use in repellents for tick management.
