It’s your health – insect repellents

It’s time to read up on insect repellents! Here is a snapshot from Health Canada’s “it’s your health” website:

The following products are not recommended for a variety of reasons. They may not be very effective or long-lasting and they may have the potential to be harmful to human health.

  • electronic or ultrasonic devices
  • electrocuting devices, like bug zappers
  • wristbands, neckbands and ankle bands that contain repellents
  • odour-baited mosquito traps
  • citrosa houseplants
  • Vitamin B1 taken orally
  • skin moisturizers and insect repellent-combination products
