Mariner Biomedical Announces Results From an Independent Laboratory Confirming Deter Insect Repellent™ Effectively Repels Mosquitoes for 6 Hours
Date:5/1/2013

San Jose, CA (PRWEB) May 01, 2013

The objective of this independent study was to scientifically analyze the effectiveness of Deter Insect Repellent™ and to compare the product’s efficacy against DEET-based insect repellents (Cutter® 7% DEET and Off® Deep Woods 25% DEET), as well as two commercially available botanical repellents (Repel® Lemon Eucalyptus and Bite Blocker® Xtreme Sportsman). All products were tested against an untreated control. The study was conducted using the Cage Test Method and analyzed the landing/biting activity of female Southern House Mosquitoes (Culex quinquefasciatus). The arms of human test subjects were exposed every 10 minutes during the 6 hour test period. The entire study was replicated twice.

The test results issued in April 2013 demonstrated the average mosquito landing rates during the 6 hour test period were 48.5 for untreated control and only 0.25 following treatment with Deter Insect Repellent™.    Results also showed that Deter Insect Repellent™ remained effective for 6 hours without a reduction in repellency. The test demonstrated that Deter significantly (ANOVA, p<0.05) out-performed Repel, Bite Blocker and Cutter 7% DEET while remaining as effective as Off containing 25% DEET.

“Due to the toxicity and environmental concerns regarding the use of DEET we set out to develop a safe and effective natural insect repellent,” explains Brad Zaro, President & CEO at Mariner Biomedical, the company that developed Deter Insect Repellent. “We conducted extensive scientific research to develop a naturally derived product that effectively repels mosquitoes and other biting insects for an extended period of time. We are very pleased that this study confirmed the efficacy of Deter, and demonstrated that it out performed several competing products while proving to be an effective alternative to DEET”.

Deter Insect Repellent™ is one
