A mosquito net over your bed means a bit of comfort, both at home and when travelling. No irritating buzz in your ear and no itchy bumps! A mosquito net that may or may not be impregnated is useful for above your bed, but also if you want to sit outside in the evening (without being bitten). A non-impregnated mosquito net is very suitable for small children and babies.
EVEN NON-IMPREGNATED MOSQUITO NETS PREVENT INSECT BITES
With a mosquito net that may or may not be impregnated, you prevent yourself from being bitten by mosquitoes and insects. Non-impregnated mosquito nets are ideal for young children (up to six years old) and babies, for whom an impregnated mosquito net is not yet safe. When staying in an area with a risk of malaria, we recommend the use of an impregnated mosquito net.
WHEN IS A NON-IMPREGNATED MOSQUITO NET SUFFICIENT?
For use at home, within Europe or in areas without malaria risk, an unimpregnated mosquito net is sufficient. For areas where malaria is prevalent, Care Plus® recommends the use of an impregnated mosquito net. As the malaria risk sometimes varies depending on the season. Ventilate the room well and hang your impregnated mosquito net, always before sunset. Also apply a good anti-insect product in the evening as well as during the day. The GGD advises malaria pills for some destinations. If you go to the tropics for a longer period of time, a cure may even be mandatory. Make sure you are aware of the requirements well ahead of time.

TIPS: HANGING A MOSQUITO NET
Fortunately, hanging up your mosquito net, whether or not it is impregnated, is very easy. All mosquito nets from Care Plus®, impregnated and non-impregnated, are supplied with a complete mounting kit, consisting of hooks, a nail, safety pins and rope. Hang the net at least before sunset, when most mosquitoes are active. Make a fastening point above your bed or run a rope horizontally over the bed to which the mosquito net can be attached. Tip: the higher you hang the mosquito net, the more space there will be underneath.

Do you want to optimally protect yourself and your family against annoying insect bites and stings? Besides the use of a mosquito net, it is important to cover your skin with clothing as much as possible, especially when you go outside. Carefully apply a good anti-insect product to any uncovered skin. Most mosquitoes bite mainly after sunset.
