Insect repellent apparel provides relief from ticks, mosquitoes

Abstract:
An İzmir-based company has started to manufacture clothing that contains an insect repellant shielding the human body from various insects, including the tick, the carrier of a deadly disease that has recently killed several people in Turkey.


Speaking to the Anatolia news agency yesterday, Tolga Narbay, a board member of Narkon Textiles Inc., said his company is using insect repellant materials for the first time in Turkey for everyday clothing. The materials are widely used around the world for clothing intended for active outdoor use.

The company makes use of nanotechnology in its manufacturing, Narbay said. "The product erects an insect shield around the wearer's body through the use of an agent unperceivable to the human sense of smell. Our insect repellent provides effective protection against mosquitoes and mosquito bites, ticks, ants, flies and more," he said, adding that the repellant dramatically reduces the number of insects that approach a person wearing the clothes. The insect repellant agent used in the clothing has been approved by Oeko-Tex, an independent association that certifies products that meet health and environmental standards, as well as the World Health Organization (WHO).
