Mosquito Repellent Oil
For your information, Lemon Grass oil, Comphor Oil, etc even garlic are
great for pest control. But most of them only last for 20 minutes or
more, as the effect of the repellent last only based on the amount of
fragrance of the oil.
With our latest experimentation, catnip and soya bean oil and a mixture
of oils from the above mentioned gives the best effect.
Nepetalactone oil extracted from catnip has 10 times more repellency
effect than DEET in the same amount.
soya bean oil gives maximum protection up to 90 minutes.
While 26.0% DEET based repellent gives protection up to 301 minutes.
Neem oil mixed with coconut oil gives good repellent protection too.
This is a India formulation.
At this moment there isnt any mosquito repellent that is 100%
guaranteed to repell all types of mosquitoes, as there are 2600 types
of mosquitoes in the world, and each different types of mosquito will
use different means to detect their victim, like CO2, Body smell, and
Most mosquito repellents are only effective for a certain period of
time and against most mosquitoes, and not all mosquitoes.
Currently the best formulation is made from a mixture of the different
types of mosquito repellent oil, and the most effective mosquito
repellent is the one that can emit fragrance the longest.
While Antimos formulation is made to work in the tropics, and against
tropics mosquitoes, and last for 3 weeks. It is not a complete solution
as yet. as it cannot repel all types of mosquitoes. Yet it has won 4
international Awards already.
