DEET, or diethyl-meta-toluamide, is a key ingredient in most of the insect repellents sold in what is a $1 billion industry worldwide.
Commercially available since 1957, DEET is sold in 230 products made by 70 companies and is used by about one-third of the U.S. population each year to repel biting pests such as mosquitoes and ticks, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.
But there are concerns about its safety.Although most studies say DEET is safe, some recommend using it only in low doses because of evidence that high doses may cause health problems, particularly when used with other medications or insecticides.
Jerome A. Klun, an ARS research entomologist working with Debboun, said they began work five years ago when they saw a need for a replacement for DEET.

Entomologist Jerome A. Klun, who heads the CAIBL team working with the military's infectious disease research program, collaborated with WRAIR's Mustapha Debboun, a medical entomologist, to develop a clear, six-chamber device with which to safely screen candidate compounds on human volunteers' skin.

DEET actually has a good safety record, asserts Debboun, who heads the armed forces' repellent committee and is co-editor of the forthcoming book Repellents, the first overall look at the field.The compound is used hundreds of millions of times worldwide each year, with only about 50 known reports of severe dermatitis or seizures since it came into use - problems usually attributed to gross overuse, if they can be clearly connected to the product at all."But if soldiers are afraid of it, we need to look for alternatives," says Debboun.
For lab work, Klun and Debboun have invented the so-called K&D module: a plastic box with multiple mosquito-filled chambers pressed against a volunteer's thigh, which allows researchers to test out several repellents at once using lab- cultivated, disease-free mosquitoes.
