Essential Oils as Repellents against Arthropods.

Authors:
Mi Young Lee

Biomed Res Int 2018 2;2018:6860271. Epub 2018 Oct 2.

Department of Medical Biotechnology, Soonchunhyang University, 22 Soonchunhyang-ro, Asan, Chungnam 31537, Republic of Korea.

The development of effective and safe repellents against arthropods is very important, because there are no effective vaccines against arthropod-borne viruses (arboviruses) and parasites. Arboviruses and parasites are transmitted to humans from arthropods, and mosquitoes are the most common arthropods associated with dengue, malaria, and yellow fever. Enormous efforts have been made to develop effective repellents against arthropods, and thus far synthetic repellents have been widely used. Read More

High mortality in aquatic predators of mosquito larvae caused by exposure to insect repellent.

Biol Lett 2018 Oct 31;14(10). Epub 2018 Oct 31.

Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies, Box AB, Millbrook, NY 12545, USA.

In the face of mosquito-borne disease outbreaks, effective mosquito control is a primary goal for public health. Insect repellents, containing active compounds such as DEET and picaridin, are a first defence against biting insects. Owing to widespread use and incomplete sewage treatment, these compounds are frequently detected in surface waters, but their effects on aquatic taxa such as mosquito larvae or their naturally occurring aquatic predators are poorly understood.

Detecting active ingredients of insect repellents and sunscreens topically in skin by Raman spectroscopy.

J Biomed Opt 2018 Oct;23(10):1-11

Universidade Anhembi Morumbi, Center for Innovation, Technology and Education, São José dos Campos, Brazil.

We present the use of Raman spectroscopy for determination of functional characteristics of insect repellents and sunscreens by identifying the active ingredients of these products applied topically to the skin. Commercial formulations of insect repellents and sunscreens (SPF 15 and 30) were obtained, and Raman spectra were obtained from the formulations and from volunteers' skins with topical applications of such products compared to controls. The results indicated that, for insect repellents, the peaks at 527 and 1003  cm  -  1 were markers of the presence of the active ingredient diethyl toluamide in the skin, while for sunscreens, the peaks at 1177, 1288, and 1611  cm  -  1, associated to octinoxate, benzophenone-3, and avobenzone, were markers of the presence of solar filters in the skin.

Eave ribbons treated with the spatial repellent, transfluthrin, can effectively protect against indoor-biting and outdoor-biting malaria mosquitoes.

Malar J 2018 Oct 17;17(1):368. Epub 2018 Oct 17.

Environmental Health and Ecological Sciences Department, Ifakara Health Institute, Ifakara, Tanzania.

Background: Long-lasting insecticide-treated nets and indoor residual spraying protect against indoor-biting and indoor-resting mosquitoes but are largely ineffective for early-biting and outdoor-biting malaria vectors. Complementary tools are, therefore, needed to accelerate control efforts. This paper describes simple hessian ribbons treated with spatial repellents and wrapped around eaves of houses to prevent outdoor-biting and indoor-biting mosquitoes over long periods of time.

Dynamic modelling of personal protection control strategies for vector-borne disease limits the role of diversity amplification.

J R Soc Interface 2018 Aug;15(145)

Department of Biology, University of Maryland College Park, College Park, MD 20742, USA.

Personal protection measures, such as bed nets and repellents, are important tools for the suppression of vector-borne diseases like malaria and Zika, and the ability of health agencies to distribute protection and encourage its use plays an important role in the efficacy of community-wide disease management strategies. Recent modelling studies have shown that a counterintuitive diversity-driven amplification in community-wide disease levels can result from a population's partial adoption of personal protection measures, potentially to the detriment of disease management efforts. This finding, however, may overestimate the negative impact of partial personal protection as a result of implicit restrictive model assumptions regarding host compliance, access to and longevity of protection measures.

Exposure to amitraz, fipronil and permethrin affects cell viability and ABC transporter gene expression in an Ixodes ricinus cell line.

Parasit Vectors 2018 Jul 31;11(1):437. Epub 2018 Jul 31.

Department of Veterinary Sciences, University of Parma, 43126, Parma, Italy.

Background: Over-expression of ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporter proteins has been implicated in resistance of ticks to acaricides. Tick cell lines are useful for investigating resistance mechanisms, as development of an in vitro model for the study of acaricide resistance would contribute to improving knowledge of the molecular basis behind drug processing and exclusion in ticks. In the present study, cultures of the Ixodes ricinus-derived cell line IRE/CTVM19 were treated with the acaricides amitraz, permethrin or fipronil to determine modulation of ABC transporter gene expression.

Department of Chemistry, Wroclaw University of Environmental and Life Sciences, 50-375 Wrocław, Poland.

Hydrolysis of (±)-β-aryl-γ-ethylidene-γ-lactones by fungal strain AM370 afforded (−)-()-γ-ethylidene-γ-lactones ⁻ and (+)-()-γ-ketoacids ⁻. Enantiomeric purity of the unreacted lactones was strictly related to a size of an aryl substituent at C-4 of γ-lactone ring, with the highest (77%) obtained for the (−)-()-γ-ethylidene-γ-lactone possessing unsubstituted benzene ring () and the lowest one (15%) determined for the (−)-()-γ-ethylidene-γ-lactone with bulky 1,3-benzodioxole system (). Lactones ⁻, both racemic and enantiomerically enriched, as well as products of their hydrolysis showed varying degrees of feeding deterrent activity against lesser mealworm, Panzer, which depended on the structure of the compound and the developmental stage of the lesser mealworm.

Background: The essential oils of Cymbopogon citratus (CC), Pelargonium graveolens (PG) and Vetiveria zizanioides (VZ) are commonly used topically to prevent mosquito bites and thus the risk of infection by their vectored pathogens such as arboviruses. However, since mosquito bites are not fully prevented, the effect of these products on the level of viral infection remains unknown.

Objectives: To evaluate in vitro the essentials oils from Reunion Island against one archetypal arbovirus, the Ross River virus (RRV), and investigate the viral cycle step that was impaired by these oils. Read More

Pyrethroid insecticides maintain repellent effect on knock-down resistant populations of Aedes aegypti mosquitoes.

PLoS One 2018 15;13(5):e0196410. Epub 2018 May 15.

Department of Epidemiology, University of North Carolina Gillings School of Global Public Health, Chapel Hill, North Carolina, United States of America.

Pyrethroid-treated clothing is commonly worn for protection against mosquitoes; pyrethroids are both insecticides and repellents. Pyrethroid resistance has become increasingly common in Aedes aegypti, the vector of dengue, Zika, and other arboviruses, but it is not clear whether resistance is associated with reductions in repellency. In order to determine whether long-lasting permethrin impregnated (LLPI) clothing is protective, we used Aedes aegypti from New Orleans, LA (pyrethroid-sensitive) and San Juan, PR (resistant) to measure both lethality and repellency.
