Abstract
A small field trial was carried out to compare the effectiveness against biting flies of topical repellent, a lightweight repellent-treated overjacket and collars and wrist bands treated with four different repellents. The overjacket and topical repellent were equally effective against the local insect population while the collars and wrist bands were less effective. Of the four repellent compounds tested on the collars and wrist bands, only N,N-diethyl-m-toluamide (deet) provided a significant degree of spatial repellency.
