The curtains were born with the original purpose of protecting people from mosquito bites. But now researchers have found a new way to use mosquito nets, which not only protects us from mosquito bites but also helps kill mosquitoes as soon as they reach the screen.

Using video surveillance systems, engineers from the University of Warwick and the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine in the UK conducted an analysis of how mosquitoes fly around mosquito nets. They observed that insects, such as mosquitoes, spend a lot of time flying back and forth on the net.



It is simply a rectangular net impregnated with insecticide and placed vertically on top of the screen.

The team then placed an obstacle on the fly's path and named it Barrier Bednet. It is simply a rectangular net impregnated with insecticide and placed vertically on top of the screen. This is simple, but the researchers' ideas have contributed to effectively obstructing the flight path of mosquitoes.

This curtain causes mosquitoes to continuously touch and result in insecticide-infested. In fact, field experiments with the Bednet Barrier were conducted in Burkina Faso, Africa. It shows that this net brings very high effectiveness to kill mosquitoes. Especially the intermediate Anophele gambiae mosquitoes that transmit malaria.


Testing a new type of mosquito net in Africa.

Another advantage of the Bednet Barrier is that it is placed on the screen so it has less contact with the human body.

Some mosquitoes are now becoming resistant to insecticides such as pyrethroids. Therefore, it is time for scientists to find a new insecticide that is more human friendly and effective in killing insects.

Professor Philip McCall of Liverpool said: "This idea paved the way for the use of insecticides for nets. What has not been used before due to health risks if people were in direct contact. In addition, if we can effectively use insecticide on the net, it will save a lot of production costs. "

The research was recently published in the journal Nature Microbiology.
