|1. (WO2013112989) LONG-ACTING NANOPARTICULATE ARTHROPOD REPELLENT FORMULATIONS AND METHODS OF USE THEREOF|
|Title:||LONG-ACTING NANOPARTICULATE ARTHROPOD REPELLENT FORMULATIONS AND METHODS OF USE THEREOF|
The present invention relates to novel nanoencapsulated compositions, methods for making such compositions, and methods of repelling insects and other arthropod pests away from animals, including humans. The present invention has particular, though not sole, application to repelling insects including flies and mosquitoes. The inventive compositions may be used to repel arthropods from animals, humans, plants, soil, or building structures. The formulations also prevent illness and disease caused by insect/pest-borne vectors, and provide safer, more effective alternatives to existing repellents.
