Every year there are 250 million cases of malaria worldwide, killing between 1 and 3 million people. Most infections occur in young children in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Our Mosquito Shelters provide excellent protection from most disease causing insects while sleeping. During daytime activities, we recommend using long sleeve pants and shirts, and mosquito repellent. On Sight shelters are made from untreated material, because of the potential health effects on both purchasers and workers. Additional protection can be added by treating shelters with insecticides such as Permethrin . Be careful when applying, this synthetic chemical is listed as an acute hazard, and possible carcinogen. Treated nets also quickly lose their effectiveness in wet, hot, and humid conditions.
Handle and store all shelters carefully to maximize their lifespans.
