Care Plus® Mosquito Net Combi-box

General

Mosquito nets keep insects and other vermin at a distance  and ensure a peaceful night’s rest. Mosquito nets only provide extra protection against mosquitoes and malaria mosquitoes  when they are closed on all sides are made of durable polyester and their mesh is no courser than 1.75 mm. If the mesh is too fine, it can become muggy under the net in a damp tropical or subtropical climate and so is not suitable for those purposes. Care Plus® Mosquito Nets were designed in our own atelier and are manufactured under the strictest quality standards. The high-quality multi-fibre polyester is ideal for durable impregnation and guarantees a long life span.

Impregnation

For optimum protection it is essential to impregnate the mosquito with the proper concentration of contact  insecticide. The contact insecticide used on the Care Plus® Mosquito Nets is deadly for mosquitoes and other vermin, but harmless to people. Impregnation provides extra protection as mosquitoes do not even get the chance to land on and bite through the net. The WHO recommends Long Lasting impregnated mosquito nets for high-risk malaria areas (tropical Africa, Amazon region, parts of South East Asia).

Mosquito nets are available in three varieties: untreated, standard impregnation, and Long Lasting Impregnation (LLI).

Untreated mosquito nets are ideal for at home. When travelling to areas where malaria is a risk factor, impregnated mosquito nets are recommended. Standard impregnated mosquito nets remain effective for 6 months when used. The nets are washable but no longer effective once washed. After being washed just once they must be impregnated again. The useful lifespan of the impregnation improves if impregnated mosquito nets are stored in a dark space after use.

All prefabricated mosquito nets impregnated with Tropicare®  are LLI and meet the requirements of the WHO (World Health Organisation). Tropicare® works with the patented DawaPlus® technology. This impregnation remains active for 4 to 5 years when used on a daily basis. These mosquito nets can also be washed up to 20 times, without the net losing any of its effectiveness. The impregnating dosage used for DawaPlus® is so low that it is not necessary to air these impregnated nets before using them. This is not the case for other LLI mosquito nets. The DawaPlus® nets are manufacture using a socially responsible and environment-friendly process.

Topicare® is a sponsor of Drive Against Malaria. For every Care Plus® Mosquito Net sold, a mosquito net is donated to the local population in Africa.
