Health Authorities Fear West Nile Season Again in US

or meningitis.

Besides wearing repellant containing DEET and dressing in protective clothing during peak biting hours, health officials say the best precautions people can take are getting rid of standing water where mosquitoes breed and keeping them out of the house.

DEET, is an insect-repellent chemical. It is intended to be applied to the skin or to clothing, and is primarily used to protect against insect bites. In particular, DEET protects against tick bites (which transmit Lyme disease) and mosquito bites (which transmit dengue fever, West Nile virus, Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE), and malaria).

DEET is believed to work by blocking insect receptors (notably those which detect carbon dioxide and lactic acid) which are used to locate hosts. DEET effectively "blinds" the insect's senses so the biting/feeding instinct is not triggered by humans or animals which produce these chemicals.
