Mosquito Control - Mosquito Nets
If you live in or are traveling to a high-risk area for mosquito related diseases, mosquito netting is a helpful tool. Netting offers protection from mosquitoes as well as other pesky or dangerous insects, thereby decreasing the risk of contracting any mosquito-borne diseases.
The World Health Organization and the U.S. Center for Disease Control highly recommend using various netting options to reduce contact with mosquitoes.
