Neem Repellent

Neem is used as an active ingredient for manufacturing insect/mosquito repellent spray and coil. This natural or herbal product is increasingly becoming popular as the fumes are non toxic and do not affect humans. Synthetic repellents and sprays affected the human body, so they are being replaced by the organic counterparts. Repellent creams are being exported to large number of countries infested with insects and mosquitoes.

Azadirachtin is the main compound possessing repellent properties and hence finds immense importance in agriculture and personal hygiene industry. Salannin is another compound in the tree, having insect and pest repellent properties.
