DEET alternatives

first_imgBy Elmer GrayUniversity of GeorgiaIn mosquito repellents, the longtime standard DEET(N,N-diethyl-m-toluamide) is still the most effective. However,the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently added twonew active ingredients to their guidelines.The CDC now accepts picaridin, or KBR 3023, and p-menthane3,8-diol (PMD), or oil of lemon eucalyptus, as viablealternatives for people who object to using DEET.Both of these new active ingredients have been used in Europe andAustralia for a few years. It should be noted that oil of lemoneucalyptus should not be used on children under age 3.A word of caution about “natural” products: Often they’re basedon oils distilled and concentrated from plants. Usually theseoils have evolved to help defend a plant from insect feeding.When they’re concentrated and refined, they can be toxic andirritating. As a result, “natural” doesn’t always mean “safe.”Safe for kidsBoth the CDC and the American Academy of Pediatrics sayrepellents containing 10-percent and 30-percent DEET appear to beequally safe for children over 2 months old.Parents should use lower concentrations on children if possible.At 10 percent, DEET is typically effective for 2 hours. At 30percent, it’s effective about 5 hours. Use higher concentrations(up to 30 percent for children) only when extended exposures areexpected.As with any repellent or insecticide, though, it’s critical toread the label and apply only as directed. The most importantaspect concerning children and repellents is for adults to applywhatever is used.When applying repellents in general, apply them only to parts ofthe body that are exposed to mosquitoes. Don’t apply anyrepellent to skin that will be covered by clothing. Don’t apply arepellent to sunburned, irritated, cut or abraded skin, either,or to the mouth or eyes.Be carefulWhen applying repellent to your face, put it on your hands andthen rub it over your face. Use this technique on children ingeneral. And after leaving the mosquito-infested area, wash alltreated skin with warm, soapy water.The risk of being bitten by a mosquito carrying a disease of anytype is extremely small. But never underestimate the dangers ofmosquito-borne diseases. Encephalitis (inflammation of the brain)is extremely serious and debilitating, no matter what version youget (West Nile virus, Eastern Equine, LaCrosse).The best ways to limit exposure to mosquito populations are: Wear light-colored, protective clothes.Keep screens repaired.Wear insect repellents when exposed to mosquitoes.Eliminating all standing water around your home andneighborhood can greatly reduce the number of mosquitoes, too.Using common sense, minimizing your exposure to mosquitoes,eliminating standing water and following label directions onrepellents can help you have a safe and enjoyable summer.(Elmer Gray is an Extension Service entomologist for theUniversity of Georgia College of Agricultural and EnvironmentalSciences.)last_img read more

Sterling Hofrichter tries to fill Riley Dixon’s void

first_img Published on September 7, 2016 at 11:30 pm Contact Matt: [email protected] | @matt_schneidman Facebook Twitter Google+ Gone are the days of Syracuse punter Heisman campaigns. So too, presumably, are the highlight-reel fake punts on fourth downs. Riley Dixon is starting for the defending Super Bowl champion Denver Broncos now. Syracuse has Sterling Hofrichter.Who?“You’re talking about my punter?” Dino Babers said with a laugh when asked about Hofrichter on Wednesday’s Atlantic Coast Conference coaches teleconference.A relative unknown in the post-Dixon era, Hofrichter recognizes he can’t replicate the star that Dixon became amid a tumultuous 2015 season. After all, he’s eight inches shorter and 36 pounds lighter than Dixon was last year, and his 5-foot-9, 183-pound frame makes him the shortest and second-lightest starting punter in the Atlantic Coast Conference. But after a year under Dixon’s tutelage, Hofrichter will continue his turn in the punter’s spotlight when Syracuse (1-0) faces No. 13 Louisville (1-0) in the Carrier Dome Friday at 8 p.m.“You can’t really try to be like Riley,” Hofrichter said. “Two different people … I guess to other people there is pressure, but I’m trying to just think of it as there’s no pressure. Just come in, just try to do what I can do.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textDixon’s rise originated when he was a walk-on from local Christian Brothers (New York) Academy. His ascendance has reached its peak five years later, as Dixon unseated longtime NFL punter Britton Colquitt in Denver. Hofrichter has been on scholarship from the start but is only one game into his collegiate career after redshirting last year.What Hofrichter learned from Dixon was to keep it simple. Don’t try and blast the ball as far as possible. Keep your mechanics fine-tuned and under control. Think small, then big punts will come.Hofrichter pointed out stark differences in the way each punts the ball, and the results stem from the noted size difference. While Dixon launches the ball at a much higher trajectory, predicating his success on sheer power, Hofrichter hits more of a line drive.“With Riley, since he’s taller, he’s able to get the ball to shoot up more and then go out,” Hofrichter said. “For me, since I’m shorter, my balls more kind of just fly out and they usually flutter on the way down which helps it get more hang time.”Hofrichter has one goal for each of his punts: force the returner into a fair catch. He leans on that hang time to allow Syracuse’s gunners to get downfield when Hofrichter doesn’t force a fair catch. Against Colgate, he forced them on two of his three punts. Colgate’s only return went 9 yards.His 45.3-yard average in the season-opener is better than Dixon’s 43.7-yard average from a year ago. If anything, it’s a start.“He’s also good fundamentally, so he can attack a spot, where other athletes can’t attack a spot,” said Jamie Kohl, director of Kohl’s Kicking, Punting and Snapping Camps. “They have to be more conservative when they sling because they’re not as sure with their rhythm or with the ball when it leaves their hand, where it’s gonna be. Sterling knows where it’s gonna be so he can be more aggressive.“Combine that with his leg speed and that’s where you get him being very effective at the college level as a punter.”Two years ago, Scott Shafer offered Hofrichter a scholarship when he saw him kick a 55-yard field goal in Seffner, Florida, where Hofrichter attended Armwood (Florida) High School. Two years later, he’s only punting, and he prefers focusing on one special teams discipline for now.All he wants to do is get experience. And with the task of replacing one of Syracuse’s most beloved players and one of the country’s best punters, that’s not a bad place to start.“I think he’s a really good punter,” Babers said. “I hope not to use him too much, but I think he has the ability to be an excellent punter for us.” Commentslast_img read more
