in everyday life: What WILL protect you against mosquitoes?
This chart could keep you healthy. Mosquitoes transmit disease to
more than 700 million persons each year worldwide. In the United
are falling victim to eastern and western equine encephalitis and
West Nile virus, also transmitted by mosquitoes. This chart, adapted
from Mark S. Fradin and John F. Day, “Comparative Efficacy of
Insect Repellents,” New England Journal of Medicine, July 4, 2002,
|13-18, shows which
repellants are most effective against
mosquitoes. For a Pareto diagram reflecting this data, go to chartsyoucanuse.htm
