Abstract

Two chemicals, callicarpenal and intermedeol, were isolated from Callicarpa americana and tested for their ability to repel blacklegged and lone star ticks. Both were found to effectively repel tick nymphs similar to Deet, but less than SS220 at the same dosage. The duration of effectiveness of the compounds varied by tick species and by compound.
