KOLDING, Denmark, Jan., 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Now, in addition to being available in traditional white, Netprotect® bed nets are available in Uganda in decorative red and white stripes. Which means that consumers can buy a mosquito bed net that is long lasting, strong, beautifully colored and contains an insecticide to kill mosquitoes.
Netprotect® mosquito bed nets give consumers protection against annoying mosquito bites and malaria, which is transmitted by mosquitoes, and the ability to decorate their bedrooms. These attractive nets, which last up to five years, will make more people want to hang them up and sleep under them because they are so beautiful.
The new brightly colored red and white striped nets are available in a variety of stores in Uganda such as: Uchumi Supermarkets, Nakumatt Supermarkets, Game Supermarkets, Tuskys Supermarkets and Quality Supermarkets and other leading stores. However, the distribution network will continue to expand to make the striped nets available throughout the entire country.
These nets are made of fabric that is very strong, and can last twice as long as many of the bed nets that are currently available in Uganda stores. The addition of the insecticide means that the bed net can kill insects that land on it, even when no one is sleeping beneath it.
The manufacturer Bestnet A/S has partnered with Balton Uganda Ltd. to act as their agent to introduce these colorful and effective long lasting insecticide incorporated mosquito bed nets to the Ugandan consumer market.
