Mosquito

As mosquito season descends upon the Midwest and fears over mosquito-borne illnesses continue to dominate headlines, a professor at Creighton University is hoping to prevent pesky bites and allay fears of disease with research he’s done toward finding the most effective mosquito repellent.

Philip J. Gregory, Pharm.D., an associate professor of pharmacy practice in the Center for Drug Information and Evidence-Based Practice in Creighton’s School of Pharmacy and Health Professions says EPA-registered mosquito repellents are the safest and most effective means for preventing mosquito bites in adults and children two months of age and older.
