Abstract Bednets, especially nets impregnated with repellant or insecticide, are attracting increasing interest as a key intervention against mosquito-borne parasites. They are relatively cheap and simple to use, and if arranged correctly can give protection against mosquitoes and other nocturnal biting flies.
