Mosquito netting

Mosquito netting or insect netting is usually made from synthetic material and is defined by the number of holes per square inch. Mosquito netting keeps the bugs out, but lets outdoor breezes in.

Mosquito netting is used for sewing clothing, nets, curtains or simply for decoration. It is defined by the number of holes per square inch and there can be 200, 525, 625 holes or even more per square inch. As the number of holes per square inch increases smaller and smaller insects are kept out but on the other hand the airflow is restricted more and more.
Mosquito netting, if used in a form of mosquito curtains, can protect your family from mosquitoes, black flies, no-see-um, sand flies, yellow flies, bees, and other flying insects. It is important that the netting not have holes or gaps large enough to allow insects to enter. The netting also acts as a limited rain barrier - water tends to simply drip down the curtain.
Mosquito netting is usually produced from polyester with different UV protected materials so it is not affected by the temperature. Such polyester mosquito netting is also a mildew resistant material – although exposure to mildew weakens the netting over time, but it can be simply washed away.
You can even find a so called camouflage mosquito netting on the market which is painted in camouflage colors and is mostly used by the military. It is possible to buy mosquito netting in pieces or by the yard, depending on your needs.
Using mosquito netting reduces the risk of malaria infection and other mosquito borne diseases by 10 to 20 times!
