DawaPlus® 4.0

Proprietary dual-insecticide release technology

TANA Netting DawaNet_DP4.0_updatedIn addition to the new DawaPlus® 3.0 product, we also offer the DawaPlus® 4.0 long-lasting insecticidal combination net using proprietary dual-insecticide release technology to improve nets efficacy.

Designed specifically for regions in which mosquitoes have developed metabolic resistance to pyrethroid insecticides, the PBO co-insecticide helps to suppress the resistance mechanism, allowing the  insecticide to recover its efficacy.

Incorporation of Piperonyl butoxide (PBO) into the entire net

DawaPlus® 4.0 incorporates an advanced PBO and deltamethrin plus PBO netting into the entire net, providing the maximum level of protection.

The PBO is a co-insecticide, considerably enhancing the effectiveness of the primary insecticide, here deltamethrin, by suppressing the mosquito’s enzyme defenses. We optimize each yarn to release either PBO or deltamethrin plus PBO. This way we can ensure a proper ratio of the co-insecticide and the primary insecticide during the lifetime of the net.
