Insect repellents currently fall into two categories: chemical repellents and natural plant-derived repellents. The most well-known and well-used chemical repellent is DEET (N, N-diethyl-3-methylbenzamide, previously called N, N-diethyl-m-toluamide). Other chemical insect repellents include IR3535, MGK-326, and MGK-264. The latest chemical agent proving to be as effective as DEET is a piperidine-based repellent called picaridin. Plant-based insect repellents are becoming increasingly popular because of their low toxicity but to date have not shown to be as effective as DEET. These include citronella, soybean oil, and eucalyptus products.
