Mosquitoes are developing resistance to mosquito repellent ingredient DEET. What are the alternatives?

Best Mosquito Repellent In India: Mosquitoes are pesky bugs that not only leave itchy welts but transmit harmful diseases like malaria, dengue, and chikungunya. All of these diseases are quite serious and are accompanied by severe symptoms.

The most commonly used active ingredient in mosquito repellent is DEET. DEET causes disturbing health problems, skin blisters, birth defects, neurological damage (memory loss, muscle and joint pain). In some cases, persons who used products containing a high concentration of N, N-Diethyl-meta-toluamide (DEET) or who were exposed to excessive amounts of DEET have experienced blisters, skin rashes, skin & mucous membrane irritation.

Recent research has found that mosquitoes are growing resistant to DEET. These mosquitoes pass the DEET resistant trait to their offspring.
