TECHNICAL INFORMATIONS

Mechanical anti-mosquito solution

The product’s tightly woven component acts as a mechanical barrier that limits mosquito bites (when not pulled tight).
The mechanical solution used instead of a permethrin soaking helps us limit our environmental impact.
Permethrin’s toxicity for humans has not yet been classified, but it is very toxic for many animals (cats, frogs, insects).
