Abstract
Evaluation of two candidate repellents demonstrated in laboratory studies to be potential alternatives to presently available insect repellents was carried out in laboratory and field conditions. Both candidate repellents have undesirable characteristics, including odour and tendency to cause skin irritations. It is recommended that candidate repellent A13-37220 be considered as an alternative to DEET as a repellent against mosquitoes, and that a dosage of 1.0 - 1.5 mg m/square cm skin surface is appropriate for protection of 6 to 10 hours. Further effort is required to determine if candidate A13-20816 has potential against species of biting flies other than those considered in this study.
