    What is DEET?

    Diethyltoluamide (also called DEET) is the most common active ingredient in conventional insect repellents. It is a slightly yellow oil intended to be applied to the skin or to clothing, and provides protection against mosquitoes, ticks, fleas, leeches, and many other biting insects.

    Whilst this may sound wonderfully convenient, the common everyday use of DEET causes it to seep into our water sources and streams. DEET is highly toxic to freshwater fish and many harmless insects.

    Can it harm us?

    As with anything, conflicting reports give us differing opinions. Studies show that side effects of extended periods of exposure to DEET include irritation, redness, rash and swelling. People who have swallowed products containing high concentrations of DEET have also experienced stomach upset, vomiting, and nausea. When it comes to children, toxicity is a valid concern. There are natural alternatives available, so when there’s a safer choice of product on offer – use it!
