Description
  • A mosquito net offers protection against mosquitos, flies, and other insects, and thus against diseases such as malaria, dengue fever, yellow fever, and various forms of encephalitis, including the West Nile virus, if used properly and especially if treated with an insecticide, which can double effectiveness. The fine, see-through, mesh construction stops many insects from biting and disturbing the person using the net. The mesh is fine enough to exclude these insects, but it does not completely impede the flow of air. Mosquito netting has a long history. Though use of the term dates from the mid 1700s, use of mosquito nets has been dated to prehistoric times. It is said that Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt, also slept under a mosquito net. Mosquito nets were used during the malaria-plagued construction of the Suez Canal. Mosquito net can be made from cotton, polyethylene, polyester, or nylon. A mesh size of 1.2 mm stops mosquitoes, and smaller, such as 0.6 mm, stops other biting insects...
