Summary Advances in Arthropod Repellents offers the most current knowledge on arthropod repellents. This area of study is quickly evolving as mosquito- and tick-borne diseases become more prevalent worldwide. Written by global arthropod repellent experts, this book begins by delving into molecule discovery and assay development that is followed by the latest research and investigations of repellent developments and effects. The book then offers readers a look into the global field, semi-field, and laboratory trials using various insect repellents, ranging from Africa, Australia, Europe, South America and the United States. Lastly, it examines the future of spatial repellents and expert insight. This book is a valuable resource for entomologists and vector control researchers and practitioners. Public health officials and developers in private pest control companies, as well as readers in academia will find this a useful resource to learn the latest information available on controlling the spread of arthropod-borne diseases with repellents
