The public has a great desire for products that prevent the annoyance of biting insects and ticks, but that desire does not always translate into sensible use of those products. Insect Repellents Handbook, Second Edition summarizes evidence-based information on insect repellents to inform decisions by those involved with insect repellent research, development, and use. This authoritative, single-source reference makes it possible for you to quickly gain a working level of expertise about insect repellents, without having to search through the scattered literature.
The previous edition was the first comprehensive volume on this subject and quickly became the definitive reference on insect repellents. This second edition reflects the current state of insect repellent science, covers the processes involved in the development and testing of new active ingredients and formulations, and discusses the practical uses of repellents.
The book includes thought-provoking discussions on how repellents work, their neuromolecular basis of action, and whether green chemistry can provide effective repellents. It also supplies an in-depth understanding of the development of repellents including testing methods, review of active ingredients, and the use of chemical mixtures as repellents. It provides science-backed chapters on repellent use including best practices for use of personal protection products, criteria for repellent use, and insect repellents for other potential use.

Praise for the First Edition:
"Insect Repellents: Principles, Methods, and Uses draws together information previously scattered across the scientific and commercial literature into a single volume that covers the history, development, evaluation and use of insect repellents. The three editors, Debboun, Frances and Strickman have made a significant contribution to our understanding of insect repellents and the list of contributors reads as a ‘who’s who’ of insect repellent research over the last 30 years. This textbook contains an impressive coverage of the topic and will no doubt come to be considered the definitive reference book for those researching insect repellents in years to come."
―Cameron E. Webb, Department of Medical Entomology, Westmead Hospital, Australia in General & Applied Entomology
