Mosquito Nets Possibly the Best Travel Accessory





Mosquitoes are responsible for many different diseases such as yellow fever, dengue, malaria and several types of encephalitis. Close to six hundred million people die every year from a mosquito-born disease. Many people who acquire these horrible diseases do so while they are traveling. It is important that you take the necessary measures to prevent being bitten by a mosquito when you are traveling away from home.

Mosquito nets are vital, due to the fact that they help to prevent insect bites that have the potential of carrying some type of infectious disease. Mosquito nets come in a wide array of colors, shapes and functions. With a little research, you should be able to pick the mosquito net that best suits your travel needs.

One of the first things to consider when you are shopping for a mosquito net is the size of the net. The net should be spacious enough to cover your whole body as you sleep. The mosquito net should provide sufficient circulation of air. The most recommended hole size for mosquito nets is 0.05” x 0.05”.

The shape of the mosquito net is important as well. Rectangle-shaped mosquito nets are highly recommended, due to the fact that they provide enough space for you and all of your friends. Mosquito nets that are pyramid-shaped are best for individual use.

Something else to consider when purchasing a mosquito net for travel purposes is the material from which it is made. The most common materials that are used for mosquito nets are cotton and polyester. Polyester mosquito nets are lightweight, which is ideal for camping and all other types of travel. Since the mosquito nets that are made from cotton are not water-resistant, the polyester mosquito nets last considerably longer. However, a cotton mosquito net may be more comfortable when resting outdoors.

It is highly recommended that you purchase a mosquito net on which some form of high quality insecticide has been sprayed. Pre-treated mosquito nets provide a little extra defense against insects for up to a year from the time of purchase, depending on the amount of exposure to rain and heat. Once the insecticide is no longer effective, you can purchase some more at your local camping supply store and re-treat the mosquito net yourself.

A mosquito net is ideal in several situations. You can use a mosquito net in your backyard as an umbrella or gazebo. You can use a mosquito net indoors over windows and doors. Mosquito nets are great for all different types of camping and travel. You should plan to pack your mosquito net each time you leave home, no matter what your destination.

Now that you have a little more knowledge on what you should be looking for when you are in the market for a mosquito net, you are ready to make that purchase and begin packing for your trip. Remember to do a sufficient amount of research online and ask friends and neighbors about mosquito nets they may have purchased. The right mosquito net could be the only thing between you and some heinous disease you are in danger of acquiring on your trip away from home.
