Nobody wants a broken nights sleep when on holiday. However, worrying about being bitten is almost certainly going to lead to sleepless nights. If you are travelling to areas with low insect borne disease risk then an electric plug in insect repellent should be all you need in your room. In medium-high risk areas of tropical diseases, such as malaria and Zika virus, you should protect against insect attacks at night with a mosquito net. These come in all shapes and sizes from the single bed up to the king size bed, and are manufactured from quality robust netting material. The most effective travel mosquito nets are those treated with an insect repellent but you can get untreated travel nets for low risk areas.
If you are travelling to countries where tropical diseases such as Chagas disease, Malaria, Dengue fever and Zika virus are common, then insect repellent treated mosquito nets are essential. Manufactured form robust polyester fabric, these lightweight mosquito nets exceed the WHO guidelines of 300 holes per square inch, preventing biting insects reaching you whilst you sleep. The permethrin based insect repellent treatment on the fabric kills any insect that come in to contact with it, and will last for 2 years or 35 washes. If you should exceed the wash guidelines or have a net older than two years, then you can re-treat them at home.
