Natural repellents based on powerful ingredients : an effective defence against insects in our homes

The fight against crawling and flying insects invading our homes can be waged naturally thanks to a range of powerful plant-derived ingredients. In addition to insects, these natural active ingredients can also act as repellents for other animals, such as moles, slugs and even snakes. These repellents offer an environmentally and human health-friendly alternative to harsh chemicals. Let's find out how ingredients such as geraniol, eucalyptus citriodora, margosa, vegetable pyrethrum and essential oils can play a crucial role in defending our living spaces.

1. Geraniol : Geraniol, a natural compound found in certain essential oils such as citronella and geranium, has repellent properties against a variety of insects, including mosquitoes and flies. Geraniol-based products can be sprayed into rooms or applied to the skin to keep insects away.

2. Eucalyptus Citriodora : Eucalyptus citriodora essential oil is known for its strong lemony aroma. It is effective against mosquitoes and other biting insects. Mixed with a carrier oil, it can be applied to the skin or used in diffusers to keep insects at bay. Penn'Ty Bio offers a range of lemon eucalyptus products to protect you from insect bites

3. Margosa (Neem) : Margosa extracts, derived from neem seeds, have well-established insect repellent properties. The bitter odour and repellent action of margosa make it a valuable ingredient in sprays and lotions for protection against insects.

4. Plant pyrethrum : extracts of plant pyrethrum are obtained from the flowers of certain varieties of chrysanthemum. They are used to make natural contact insecticides or repellents. Pyrethrum is effective against a wide range of insects, including ants, flies and cockroaches.

5. Essential oils : As well as geraniol and eucalyptus citriodora, many other essential oils can be used as natural repellents. Peppermint, clove, lavender and lemon are just a few examples of oils with repellent properties. They can be mixed with water to create sprays or added to cleaning products.

Using natural repellents based on these ingredients offers a solution that is not only effective, but also without the drawbacks of traditional chemicals. However, it is important to note that although these options are natural, some people may be sensitive to essential oils or plant extracts. Before using these products, it is advisable to carry out a skin patch test and follow the manufacturer's instructions.

By adopting natural repellents, you can create a hostile environment for unwanted insects, while keeping your home and the surrounding ecosystem safe.

Let's dive deeper into the key asset

Reminder : This product contains PMD, newly called Eucalyptus Citriodora Oil or formerly Citriodiol.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, PMD is the only known natural substance capable of having an effective repellent action on mosquitoes carrying the West Nile virus. A study has shown that “natural” PMD is more effective than the synthesized “version” and that natural PMD is as effective as DEET (N,N-diethyl-3-methylbenzamide) in equal quantity!

It is likely, contrary to the many claims found on the internet, that PMD does not have a repellent action on all flying and crawling insects but only on insects that can be classified as "biting-sucking insects". » . What is safe and recognized is its repellent effectiveness on mosquitoes (tropical medicine), on lice (Cambridge Entomology Center), and good results on ticks (US National Library of Medicine)

According to the manufacturer of Citriodol, wasps and bees are not affected. Scientific tests have shown good efficacy on midges, sandflies, ticks, stable flies, black flies, deer shoes and ground leeches. More specifically, on mosquitoes, Aedes aegypti, Aedes albopictus, Aedes cantans, Aedes increpitus, Aedes melanimon, Anopheles sundaicus, Aedes taeniorhynchus, Aedes vexans, Anopheles albimanus, Anopheles arabiensis, Anopheles darlingi, Anopheles freeborni, Anopheles funestus, Anopheles gambiae quadrimaculatus, Anopheles stephensii, Coquillettidia richardii, Culex quinquefasciatus, Culex sitiens and taeniorhynchus Ochlerotatus.

Il semblerait que la pression parasitaire semble beaucoup moins importante depuis l'usage du produit.

Odeur puissante, un peu désagréable, Bien ventiler les lieux après utilisation

Produit efficace mais....

Le produit fonctionne tres bien pour repousser tout les insectes. Toutefois, j'ai rencontré des soucis avec le vaporisateur. C'est le 3em qui me pose problème. Au bout de quelques utilisations le vapo ne fonctionne plus. Je pensais qu'ils étaient bouché. J'ai dévissé et nettoyer le pistolet etc.... Rien a faire. J'ai changé de pulvérisateur.... Même problème. Bien dommage car produit super efficace.

REPULSIF INSECTES

je m'en sers principalement pour mes chiennes contre les puces et les tiques . Cette année je suis heureuse car grâce à votre produit je n'ais pas donné de traitements anti-parasites chimique à mes chiennes (et surtout pas ses gros vilains cachets très coûteux).
Attention j'en vaporise là où mes animaux se couchent (2 fois par semaine) et un coup rapide sur eux sans insister et sans frotter (quand elles sortent trop en extérieur et que le risque de contamination est plus important).
Aussi sur mes matelas contre les acariens.
