TANA Netting introduces new-generation DawaPlus® 3.0 and 4.0 synergist mosquito nets

Building on the tried and tested success of its existing DawaPlus® products, TANA Netting proudly introduces its newest product innovation – the DawaPlus® 3.0 and DawaPlus® 4.0 synergist mosquito nets.

As one of the world’s largest suppliers of WHOPES-recommended long-lasting insecticidal nets (LLINs), we have extensively collaborated across the private and public sectors, with academia, and with the beneficiaries themselves. Our new WHOPES-recommended DawaPlus® 3.0 and DawaPlus® 4.0 products directly address challenges currently being faced in the fight against malaria and other vector-borne diseases.

The new-generation synergist LLINs

DawaPlus® 3.0 and DawaPlus® 4.0 offer long-lasting insecticide synergist netting. Our patented technology is based on innovative insecticide delivery technology to improve efficacy of nets. Designed specifically for regions in which mosquitoes have developed resistance to pyrethroid insecticides, the synergist targets the resistance mechanism, allowing the insecticide to be fully effective.

Piperonyl butoxide (PBO) is incorporated into the netting, which acts alongside the deltamethrin. The PBO is a synergist, considerably enhancing the effectiveness of the pyrethroid insecticide by suppressing the mosquito’s enzyme defenses. We optimize each yarn to release either PBO or deltamethrin. This way we can ensure a proper ratio of the synergist during the lifetime of the net.

  • DawaPlus® 3.0 incorporates this advanced netting into the roof of the net, with the sides of deltamethrin coated polyester.
  • DawaPlus® 4.0, on the other hand, incorporates this advanced netting into the entire net, providing the maximum level of protection.
