Deet [DEET] is used on the skin or clothing to confuse the mosquito's system of smell, not useful as a general neighborhood ground applied fog. A Google search, in particular, Wikipedia gives a good explanation of it's use. Plus, it's expensive. There are plenty of warnings on the spray cans-probably a good idea to follow them.
Mosquitos think I am a BIG JUICY Pork Chop!! Sometimes it's either
DEET or go inside the house. I don't like it a bit, but it works.

So I don't think it's in the fog-type spray-a semi educated thought.
