DEET-containing (N, N-diethyl-m-toluamide) repellents work the best. They are available in several strengths; it is not necessary to use concentrations of greater then 50%. You can get them in creams, lotions and sprays.

According to extensive research and experience, DEET is very safe when you follow the manufacturer’s instructions. Up to 50% DEET can be used by pregnant or breast-feeding women and for babies/children older than 2 months. DEET is not usually recommended for babies under 2 months. If you are taking a very young baby to a malaria and/or yellow fever risk country, you should get expert advice about suitable repellents.

Alternative repellents, such as Icaridin (Autan®) and lemon eucalyptus oil (Mosi-guard®) are also available. Repellents based on lemon eucalyptus oil generally do not last as long as DEET repellents, so need applying frequently. 20% strength Icaridin repellents are recommended and can be used for children aged two years and older.
