Abstract: N, N-diethylphenylacetamide (DEPA) is known multi-insect repellent against haematophagous insects and essential oils also having repellent property. Efforts have been made to develop combination of DEPA with essential oils for better and effective repellent activity. Ten essential oils were used separately (at 1%) along with DEPA20% and 22 essential oils (at 20%) were tested for their repellent activity. It is found that protection time of essential oils when tested individually was found to be upto 4hrs. DEPA 20% alone was more effective than that of combination with essential oils and essential oils alone.
