Mosquitoes and summer insects

Unfortunately, sunny days also bring with them their share of small inconveniences. Wasps, flies, mosquitoes, hornets … all kinds of insects are added to our holiday list, invade our terraces, inflict unpleasant hives on us, and in some cases infect us with serious diseases. However, we must know that in summer, nature being at its peak, it is normal for us to meet such encounters. Despite their seemingly disturbing invasions, be aware that no insects deliberately attack us. The best is to keep them at a distance and continue our journey. The most effective and least harmful solution is to use a mosquito net.

The mosquito net, a multifunction device

Did you know that mosquito nets are also used as bacteria barriers, anti-pollens and sun protection? Indeed, although they are called mosquito nets, the function of these screens is not limited to keeping mosquitoes and other flying insects away. Therefore, suspended, placed or cut, you can adapt your mosquito net according to your own needs and your style. The most effective mosquito nets are impregnated with a long-lasting insecticide like that offered by the brand of Insect Ecran.

Impregnated or non-impregnated mosquito net. Which one to choose ?

This question that many are asking is quite legitimate, especially if you have adopted a bio-engaged approach. Indeed, the impregnated mosquito net contains an insecticide, generally permethrin. So why choose it over another, unimpregnated and therefore considered healthier? In reality, it depends on the geographical area where you are.

Thus, the impregnated mosquito net is de rigueur in regions where mosquitoes are transmitters of serious diseases. This is particularly the case in tropical environments, where malaria, dengue fever and chikungunya are rife … Under these conditions, the impregnated protection does not only repel mosquitoes, but it also kills them, to prevent possible bites. through the mosquito net. In addition, the impregnated mosquito net is also effective against most biting insects such as chiggers, bedbugs, ticks, fleas, lice,etc.

In this category, we can cite the long-lasting impregnated mosquito net for a double bed and the one for the baby bed of the Insect Ecran brand, available in your online pharmacy.

The non-impregnated mosquito net is more suitable for temperate zones, where mosquitoes are more of a nuisance than anything else. It is simply a matter of keeping the occupants of the bed out of the reach of the Diptera.

Maintain your impregnated mosquito net

You should know that all mosquito nets are washable, whether they are impregnated or not, cotton or polyester. However, it is to be expected that the effectiveness of the impregnation will decrease wash after wash. A re-impregnation should then be carried out after 3 washes or every 6 months (except for long-lasting treated mosquito nets).

In “long-term” people, the insecticide can withstand up to 15 to 20 washes at 30 ° C. Their action generally lasts for 3 years.
