Field evaluation of deet-treated mesh jacket against black flies (Simuliidae)

Field evaluation of deet-treated mesh jacket against black flies (Simuliidae)

Journal of Medical Entomology 12(5): 558-561

A cotton-polyester mesh jacket treated with deet was evaluated as a personal protective measure against Simuliid bites. In addition, the jacket was evaluated as to skin irritability and acceptability with respect to comfort and convenience after continual wear. The deet-impregnated mesh jacket offered significant protection from Simuliids in New York State as measured by statistical comparisons between the numbers of bites received by individuals wearing treated and non-treated jackets.
