NEW mosquito nets have been offloaded on the Zambian market and are said to be durable and can last for five years.
These nets are made of strong fabric that can last twice as many of the bed nets in Zambia.
Bestnet retail sales manager Nicolai Lund said in a statement issued in Lusaka yesterday that Netprotect bed nets are available in Zambia in decorative orange and green stripes, some of them with Chipolopolo labels.
Mr Lund said the new brightly coloured orange and green striped nets are available in variety of pharmacies and supermarkets in the country.
“This means that consumers can buy a mosquito bed net that is long lasting, strong, beautifully coloured and contains an insecticide to kill mosquitoes,” he said.
Mr Lund said the nets are ideal for people interested in displaying Zambian flag colours especially that the 2013 Africa Cup of nations is underway.
