Description
Nepetalactone inside catnip is a mosquito and fly repellent. Oil isolated from catnip by steam distillation is a repellent against insects, in particular mosquitoes, cockroaches and termites.
Research suggests that, while ten times more effective than DEET it is not as effective as a repellent when used on the skin when compared with DEET or SS20 so when it touches the skin it dissipates, but the cat rolls in the oil and coats it’s fur so maybe this is why it’s attracted!
With domestic cats, N. cataria is used as a recreational substance for pet cats’ enjoyment.
Common behaviour’s cats display when they sense the bruised leaves or stems of catnip are rubbing on the plant, rolling on the ground, pawing at it, licking it, and chewing it.
Eventually they will leave the plant easily after becoming immune as their olfactory nerve becomes used to the substance.
