Title: Evaluation Of Electronic Mosquito-repelling Devices Using Aedes Albopictus (skuse) (diptera: Culicidae) [avaliação De Aparelhos Eletrônicos Repelentes De Mosquitos Usandose Aedes Albopictus (skuse) (diptera: Culicidae)]

Abstract: The mosquito-repelling devices Anti-Pic®, Mosquito Repeller® DX-600 and Bye-Bye Mosquito® were evaluated in boxes for experimentation by exposing human hands to Aedes albopictus (Skuse) adults. Two sets of tests were performed based on 15 min. expositions. In the first set both hands were introduced in the box, one of them holding the device on. In the second set only one hand was introduced each time, holdind the device on or off. The devices failed to show efficiency in both evaluations. A seemingly 30.3% repellency due to Anti-Pic® in the first set of experiments was not confirmed in the second set. It was discussed the value of such devices for dengue prevention.
