BAYREPEL INSECT REPELLANT

November 14, 2005

● Bayrepel is an active substance tailored
to the olfactory system of insects and is
the first compound to overcome the disadvantages
of traditional repellants,
according to executives at Bayer
Chemicals. It offers protection against
insect bites, including tick bites, without
the sticky feeling and unpleasant
odor of traditional repellants.
Bayrepel was introduced as part of
Bayer’s Autan product range five years
ago. Bayer Chemicals, part of Leverkusen,
Germany-based Bayer AG, still
has ambitious plans for the product.
“Our goal is to make the active substance
that has performed so well in
the Autan range available to end users
under other proprietary names too,”
said Dr. Thomas Gernot, Bayer
