Our mosquito nets come pre-treated with Permethrin to provide a chemical as well as a physical barrier to biting insects. Permethrin is a synthetic chemical, widely used as a long lasting insecticide and insect repellent. It functions as a neurotoxin on insects and fish but is relatively safe for most mammals so is frequently used in the impregnation of bed nets. Permethrin is highly toxic to cats and fish and you should always read the label before use.
Adventure travellers require the strongest possible protection from insect borne diseases such as Malaria, West Nile Fever and Japanese Encephalitis. This military specification, compact mosquito net is perfect for extreme conditions to ward off the threat of landing and biting insects.
