Bayer mixes deltamethrin in mosquito nets

Bayer CropScience has incorporated the pyrethroid insecticide, deltamethrin, into polypropylene fibre for the manufacture of mosquito nets. The nets will be softer, stronger and remain effective for longer than currently available alternatives, according to Bayer. Insecticide-treated nets are commonly used to combat the spread of malaria, but Bayer claims to be the first company to have incorporated the insecticide into nets. The product will be launched onto the market “within the next few years” as LifeNet. Deltamethrin is a UN WHO-recommended active ingredient for vector control. Bayer is showcasing its vector-borne disease products in Nairobi, Kenya this month.
