Mosquito repellents do not kill mosquitos but weaken them and deter them from biting people. These repellents come in the form of sprays, coils, machine vaporizers, skin-friendly creams & oils, and body patches. They generally have a limited effect time ranging from 5-10 hours. These repellents are generally made from chemicals such as N, N-Diethyl-meta-toluamide), diethyl phthalate, diethyl carbate, picaridin and ethyl hexanediol.
