VeryWell: 10 Top Insect and Mosquito Repellents


Protect against West Nile Virus, Zika, and other mosquito-borne and insect-borne illnesses with insect repellent when walking outdoors. The Center for Disease Control recommends mosquito repellent with 5 percent to 50 percent DEET (N,N-diethyl-m-toluamide), as the best insect repellent for West Nile Virus mosquitoes. Over 50 percent DEET provides no further protection and can damage some fabrics. For children under two months of age, it is best to avoid DEET and to limit the concentration to under 30 percent for older children.
