This study investigated insect bite protection and length of the protection with 30 repellents which were divided into 3 categories: plant oil, essential oil and essential oil with ethyl alcohol, tested against three mosquito species, Aedes aegypti, Anopheles minimus and Culex quinquefasciatus, under laboratory conditions. The plant oil group was comprised of Phlai (Zingiber cassumunar) and Sweet basil (Ocimum basilicum). Both substances were effective as repellents and feeding deterrents… 
Repellent activity of essential oils from Rutaceae plants against Aedes aegypti (Linn.) and Culex quinquefasciatus (Say).
TLDR
Herbal essential oils derived from eight species of Rutaceae plants (Citrus aurantifolia) were applied on the forearms of volunteers and repellent activity indicated the order of protection time and biting rate against two mosquito species in eight essential oils.
Repellency of essential oils extracted from Thai native plants against Aedes aegypti (Linn.) and Culex quinquefasciatus (Say)
TLDR
The results revealed that the potential of essential oil extracted from B. rotunda, Z. zerumbet, L. petiolata, C. zedoaria, and Z. cassumunar had attributes of good repellent and deterred biting and were recommended for further study to develop as commercial repellents.
Efficacy of essential oils from citrus plants against mosquito vectors Aedes aegypti (Linn.) and Culex quinquefasciatus (Say).
TLDR
Repellent activity indicated the order of protection time and biting rate against two mosquito species in eight essential oils as C. aurantifolia was effective as repellent and feeding deterrent against Ae.
Excito-Repellency of Citrus hystrix DC Leaf and Peel Essential Oils Against Aedes aegypti and Anopheles minimus (Diptera: Culicidae), Vectors of Human Pathogens
TLDR
There were statistically significant differences between leaf (more active) and peel oils at each concentration against An.
Larvicidal and Biting Deterrent Activity of Essential Oils of Curcuma longa, Ar-turmerone, and Curcuminoids Against Aedes aegypti and Anopheles quadrimaculatus (Culicidae: Diptera)
TLDR
Essential oils and extract of Curcuma longa, ar-turmerone, and curcuminoids were evaluated for their larvicidal and deterrent activity against mosquitoes and ar-Turmerone showed significantly higher biting deterrence than DEET at all the dosages.
Plant extract efficacy on mosquito mortality: preliminary studies on the effect of Ailanthus altissima extract on adult Aedes aegypti and Culex quinquefasciatus
TLDR
It was found that application method and leaf age had significant effects on mosquito mortality at high concentrations, indicating that while mortality was not comparatively high to commercial products, there may be potential to use an invasive plant extract as a bio-control tool for mosquito vectors of human disease pathogens.

Repellency effect of forty-one essential oils against Aedes, Anopheles, and Culex mosquitoes
TLDR
Five most effective oils were evaluated against the yellow fever mosquito, Aedes aegypti (Linnaeus), the malaria vector, Anopheles stephensi (Liston), and the filariasis and encephalitis vector, Culex quinquefasciatus (Say) (Diptera: Culicidae) using the skin of human volunteers to find out the protection time and repellency.
Laboratory Evaluation of Mosquito Repellents Against Aedes albopictus, Culex nigripalpus, and Ochlerotatus triseriatus (Diptera: Culicidae)
TLDR
Four synthetic mosquito repellents and eight natural (primarily plant extracts and/or essential oils) product-based repellent products were tested in the laboratory against Aedes albopictus Skuse, Culex nigripalpus Theobald, and Ochlerotatus triseriatus.
Repellency of volatile oils from plants against three mosquito vectors.
TLDR
The potential of volatile oils extracted from turmeric, citronella grass and hairy basil as topical repellents against both day- and night-biting mosquitoes is demonstrated.
Field Evaluation of Deet and a Piperidine Repellent Against Aedes communis (Diptera: Culicidae) and Simulium venustum (Diptera: Simuliidae) in the Adirondack Mountains of New York
TLDR
Repellent efficacy of N,N-diethyl-3-methyl-benzamide, the piperidine, 1-cyclohexen-1-ylcarbonyl, and 2-methylpiperidine were evaluated topically on human volunteers against the mosquito Aedes communis and the black fly Simulium venustum Say to show no evidence of synergistic repellency from a combination of the two compounds.
Comparative repellency of 38 essential oils against mosquito bites
TLDR
Undiluted oils of Cymbopogon nardus (citronella), Pogostemon cablin (patchuli), Syzygium aromaticum (clove) and Zanthoxylum limonella (Thai name: makaen) were the most effective and provided 2 h of complete repellency.
Comparative efficacy of insect repellents against mosquito bites.
TLDR
Currently available non-DEET repellent products do not provide protection for durations similar to those of DEET-based repellents and cannot be relied on to provide prolonged protection in environments where mosquito-borne diseases are a substantial threat.

TLDR
The results of the study show that Citridiol is highly repellent as well as toxic to leeches, and can be effectively used to prevent leech bites in the field.
Repellent and Antifeedant Activity of Salicylic Acid and Related Compounds Against the Biting Midge, Culicoides impunctatus (Diptera: Ceratopogonidae)
TLDR
An artificial membrane, blood-feeding method was used to assess the repellent and antifeedant effects of derivatives of salicylic acid on the biting midge Culicoides impunctatus Goetghebeur, with salicyluric acid performing significantly greater than the other compounds.
Mosquito density, biting rate and cage size effects on repellent tests
TLDR
The shortest MDPBs were obtained in large cages with high densities of mosquitoes and longest protection times occurred in medium sized cages with low mosquito densities.
BIOLOGICAL ASSAY METHODS FOR MOSQUITO REPELLENTS

TLDR
Biotic variables in repellent bioassays are larval nutrition, carbohydrate availability for adult mosquitoes, age and parity of females, and differences in the innate attraction/repellency of test subjects.
