Recent outbreaks of mosquito-borne viral illnesses in Puerto Rico and Hawaii have raised questions about how to protect against the mosquitoes that transmit dengue, Zika, and other viral diseases (Aedes albopictus and Aedes aegypti).

Insect repellents registered by the EPA can be expected to repel these mosquitoes,
provided the EPA-approved labeling says the product is for use to protect against
mosquitoes in general or against Aedes mosquitoes in particular.

CRC has the products you need to repel mosquitoes and protect yourself from these
dangerous viruses. FR Insect Repellent 14036 can be used to treat clothing and is
safe on Flame Resistant Clothing. Insect Repellent 14011 is an effective DEET based
repellent for use on your skin. Both are EPA registered products for sale throughout
the U.S.
