Frequently Asked Questions

Why not just nail the mosquito nets to my window frame instead?
This strategy can leave openings in the mosquito net as it does not seal off the window completely. In addition, if the nails used do not have a big enough head, this can lead your window screen to fall off completely.

If I have bars on my windows, where should the net go?
The net should be placed in the space between the bars and the windows.


  • Malaria is not spread from person to person, it is only spread with the help of a mosquito, A mosquito can only spread malaria if it bites a person sick with Malaria.
  • If you think you may have Malaria go to the hospital.
  • Store water only in buckets closed with a fitting lid, because mosquitos multiply in buckets of water.
