SS220 is an insect repellent with a broad range of efficacy.

It was developed in 2002 at the Chemicals Affecting Insect Behavior Laboratory of the United States Department of Agriculture[1] and has been found to "exert repellent and deterrent effects upon the behavior of mosquitoes and sand flies".[2] In the field, it has been shown to provide significantly better protection than DEET.[3]
