Save the Salamanders by avoiding tick and mosquito repellents with picaridin and DEET. Use natural bug repellents instead!

Save the Salamanders by choosing a natural tick and mosquito repellent without Picaridin or DEET

Turned out, Picaridin (chemical pesticide found in many insect repellents) not only repells mosquitos, temporarily comforting consumers but also kills predators like salamanders that control the populations of mosquitos, hence permanently increasing the number of mosquitos in the habitat. What a clever idea! Spray Picaridin bug spray to get rid of bugs, then go back to the store and buy more since the number of mosquitos will increase. By harming mosquito predators, picaridin may help mosquitoes survive “Insect repellents containing picaridin can be lethal to salamanders.
