MalariaWorld“Murugan sat suddenly upright, the sweat pounding off his face, not sure whether he was still dreaming or awake. The net was buzzing with mosquitoes; he could see them dancing like motes, in the finger of light that bisected his bed.

A better method for estimating the real strength of LLIN

April 14, 2011 - 11:55 -- Rune Bosselmann

Measuring bursting strength is the standard method for evaluating mosquito net strength. However, in real life use scenarios of nets these are rarely exposed to the kind of strain they are exposed to in this test. It would correspond to, more or less, if you were to grab on to a net by the hands, uniformly and without penetrating the mesh with your fingers, and pull the net apart. Few people can do that. However, if you put the netting on a nail at one end and pull with your hand at the other, a hole will be ripped with very little effort.
