The best protection is a quality woven mosquito net which will give you continuous protection at night. No need for using any repellents and at the same time a mosquito net enhances the look of your room.
Klamboe® Mosquito Net Collection is a leading mosquito net manufacturer providing families with functional and attractive mosquito nets.
