Insect repellents can be broadly classified into chemical and natural insect repellents. Chemical insect repellents like DEET have been proven to be effective in insect repulsion but they can have a major drawback in terms of side effects. Case reports of toxicity from DEET have been well documented in the medical literature and range from rashes, dizziness, headache, nausea and in rare cases death. In addition, several of the reported cases of significant toxicity from DEET are in children under the age of eight.
Natural insect repellents are made from natural oils. Natural insect repellents can be used to repel insects without the worry of harmful side effects. They can be safely applied to people of all age groups and are safe to use for pets.
