Author(s): Suryaji Jadhav, Amit Sirdesai and Dr. Prasun Bandyopadhyay
Abstract: Vector-borne diseases are accountable for more than 17% of all infectious diseases globally and are major contributors towards mortality from infectious diseases. Mosquitoes are known to be the primary causative vectors of some of the prevalent diseases in India such as Malaria, Dengue and Chikungunya. Mosquito repellents are an effective way to prevent mosquito bites. Active ingredients of synthetic mosquito repellents are N, N-diethyl-3-methylbenzamide (DEET) and Allethrins. The present study was undertaken to assess the comparative bio-efficacy of the test item, mosquito repellent cream (Odomos) containing 12.0% w / w N, N - Diethylbenzamide and liquid vaporizers containing 1.6% Transfluthrin using landing and probing inhibition method. The test item, Odomos mosquito repellent cream, exhibited instant mosquito repellency as compared to the conventional household product - liquid vaporizers against Aedes aegypti mosquitoes from the beginning of the study when tested under standard laboratory condition.
