It's bug season. Mosquitoes, ticks and other flying insects can make it unpleasant to go outside. Not only are they annoying, they can also carry diseases, such as West Nile and Lyme disease. And public health officials say you need to protect yourself. What's the best way to ward off these pests? Here's Holly Firfer with today's Health Minute. Want insects to stay away? There are good products that can help keep you pest free. A new report, released bythe Environmental Working Group, finds no bug repellent works against every pest, but your best bets are those products made with active ingredients registered with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and approved by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The Environmental Working Group reports says tests have found four registered chemicals provide a high level of protection from a number of bug bites and are also found in many popular products on your drugstore shelves. The EWG lists them as picaridin, I-R-3-5-3-5, oil of lemon eycalyptus and its synthetic derivative known as PMD and DEET. Despite its reputation as being a powerful chemical, researchers found DEET to be the most effective and least toxic of all the chemicals. The EWG warns although these repellents are effective and safe, they need to be applied correctly. Consumers must follow the basic instructions to make sure they don't overexpose their skin to these chemicals.
