Will the use of mosquito coils cause indoor air pollution?

14-Dec-2021 AOGRAND
In recent years, with the development of the industrial economy, most areas of our country have seen frequent haze weather, and PM2.5 has gradually attracted people's attention. PM2.5 is also called fine particulate matter and lung particulate matter. It refers to particulate matter with an aerodynamic diameter less than or equal to 2.5 microns. It has the characteristics of small particle size, huge specific surface area, and strong activity. It can adsorb bacteria, viruses and various toxic and harmful substances. , And floating in the atmosphere for a long time. Once inhaled into the human body, about 5% of PM2.5 is adsorbed on the lung wall and can penetrate deep into the lung tissue. A number of epidemiological investigations and clinical studies have shown that PM2.5 can cause bronchitis, pneumonia, asthma, emphysema and lung cancer, leading to decreased cardiopulmonary function and even failure. Most people spend 70%-90% of their time indoors, so indoor PM2.5 concentration is closely related to human health.

As the main product of mosquito repellent in summer in daily life, mosquito coils on the market are mainly divided into disc type mosquito coils, electric mosquito coil liquid, and electric mosquito coil pieces. On the one hand, mosquito coils bring convenience to people to repel mosquitoes, but they are also one of the important sources of indoor air pollution in summer. A typical mosquito-repellent coil, which releases a large amount of fine particles and gaseous pollutants with a particle size of ≤2.5μm during the combustion process, and therefore is also an important source of pollution in the indoor air environment.
The main mosquito repellent ingredient in various mosquito coils is pyrethrin, and the content of traditional disc mosquito coils accounts for 0.3 to 0.4%. Pyrethrin has a chronic toxic effect on the human body. Adults exposed to 0.01~1.98μg/m3 content for 0.5~5h will cause headache, nausea, dizziness and other symptoms; long-term exposure to mosquito cigarette smoke can cause asthma in children.
In addition to the mosquito repellent ingredients, the composition of the mosquito repellent incense is different in the carrier of the mosquito repellent. The carrier of the disc mosquito coil is wood chips organic filler, in addition to chronic flame retardant substances such as adhesives and dyes. The carrier of the electric mosquito coil is hydrocarbon, and some chloroform, benzene, ether, etc. will be added as a solvent.
Because different types of mosquito coils have different carriers, although the content of pyrethrins and other insect repellents is the same under the same insect repellent effect, the particle size and concentration of the carrier particles attached to these insect repellents are not the same. The location and content that enter human tissues and organs through breathing are also different.
Researchers have found that the burning of disc mosquito coils has a significant impact on indoor particulate matter, especially when mosquito coils are used at night. The pollution of mosquito coils measured by air quality shows that the use of mosquito coils in a closed environment can easily cause serious indoor air pollution, and its source of pollution The hazards are sorted into disc mosquito coil>electric mosquito coil piece>electric mosquito coil liquid.
So how to use mosquito repellent products correctly? When using mosquito coils indoors, you should choose mosquito coils with low smoke output as much as possible, such as electric mosquito coils, electric mosquito coils, etc., to reduce indoor pollution and create a healthy indoor living environment. Generally, you should open doors and windows for ventilation once an hour. In poor conditions, it is recommended to use air purification equipment to filter indoor air, control the amount of indoor particulate pollutants, and improve indoor air quality.
You can choose the right mosquito repellent products according to your needs. However, whether you choose electric mosquito coils or traditional mosquito coils, you must read the instructions carefully when purchasing and using them.
