LifeNet® is registered in Malawi

Bayer’s LifeNet, an innovative long-lasting mosquito net, has been recently approved by the registration authorities of the Republic of Malawi.

The Republic of Malawi, situated in Southern Africa, has a population of about 14 million people. Malaria is endemic in more than 95% of the country with 98% of malaria infections due to Plasmodium falciparum.

LifeNet is the world’s first long-lasting mosquito net to be manufactured from multifilament polypropylene.

Deltamethrin is incorporated into the fibres via a unique process, offering extended wash resistance beyond 35 washes. LifeNet offers superior textile strength compared to polyester and polyethylene nets which are available at the moment.

LifeNet is recommended through the WHO Pesticide Evaluation Scheme.
