* Don't Use Too Much DEET
The most effective mosquito repellents are those containing DEET (the common name for the chemical N-N-diethyl-meta-toluamide). If you choose to use a repellent, the Department of Public Health suggests you use one containing 15% DEET or less. People should not use repellents containing more than 30% DEET. Products with higher concentrations increase the risk of a toxic reaction while providing little added protection.
