MODE OF ACTION
Citrosynthol blocks the insect's olfactory receptors for a volatile substance that is contained in human sweat and breath. In other words, it 'blinds' the insect's sense of smell to the presence of humans and makes it difficult for them to find humans. It works well with all the insects that are trying to find humans so that they can bite and feed off humans - mosquitoes, midges, sand flies, biting flies and fleas, etc. It also works reasonably well with ticks and chiggers.
Citrosynthol is in Toxicity Category 4 (described as 'practically non-toxic' - the lowest of 4 categories) for oral, dermal and skin irritation, but in Toxicity Category 2 (described as 'moderately toxic') for eye irritation. Hence, it is generally safe to use.
