The Top 5 Mosquito Repellents

The Ultimate Mosquito Repellent – Mr. Mister

Mr. Mister’s slogan is “Goodbye Mosquitoes. Hello Yard.” because we truly give our customers the ability to enjoy their yards since we clear out the mosquitoes.  You spend most of your time outside around your house and yard, so investing in mosquito treatments for your yard should be your first concern.  With a mosquito-free yard, you can take advantage of beautiful Atlanta weather, invite family and friends over and share good times outside around your home.

Speaking of beautiful weather, with Spring in full gear here in Atlanta, Georgia, you’ll be spending more time outside away from your home as well.  Therefore, it’s time to research the market for the most effective mosquito repellents.  Let us share with you what we’ve found:

DEET

This product is known for being developed for the US Army back in 1946 and became available for public use a decade later. Naturally it has also built a reputation for being one of the most studied sprays in the market. The Environmental Working Group – a research organization – lists DEET as one of the safest mosquito repellents. It is also an ingredient used in many mosquito repellents.

Sawyer’s Fisherman ‘s Formula

DEET is not the only choice of ingredient found in mosquito repellents; Picaridin is another effective ingredient that the Center for Disease Control and Prevention recommends. Sawyer’s has about 20% of picaridin and is one of the popular choices on Amazon. It also has a nicer scent than DEET repellents have.

OFF! Deep Woods

This repellent has about 24% DEET and did very well in a test conducted by the New England Journal of Medicine, to compare various mosquito repellents. OFF! is also one of the top choices that people turn to when mosquito-season rolls around.

Permethrin

Permethrin is one of the stronger substances and is normally used for pest control. It is a synthetic insecticide and is not for use on skin. But it is a great choice to mosquito-proof your yard and garden. It can be sprayed on camping gear, garden furniture, gardening tools or wherever there is chance of water accumulating, as the latter is a great breeding spot for mosquitoes.

Repel

Repel has a range of products with differing concentrations of active ingredients – the part of the repellent that actually drives away mosquitoes – which includes Repel 94108 and Repel Lemon Eucalyptus. Repel’s Lemon Eucalyptus Insect Repellent is a more natural substance and contains plant-based oils like oil of lemon eucalyptus. Another option in which the active ingredient is plant-based is BiteBlocker Organic Extreme. It should be noted that repellents with oil of eucalyptus cannot be used on children under the age of 3.

The important thing to remember when browsing mosquito repellents is to check how long the effect lasts. It must also be remembered that it is equally important to make sure you get in touch with a reliable mosquito treatment service and have your home and garden sprayed. With diseases like the Zika Virus – among others, like the West Nile Virus – spreading it is better to be safe than sorry.
