Entoboma

NIRI is currently developing Entoboma, a precisely engineered mosquito net that uses its structure to kill mosquitoes. Existing nets that use chemical insecticides lose their protection after repeated washing, and mosquitoes are increasingly becoming resistant to these chemicals. By relying on its structure, the Entoboma net avoids the use of these chemicals and is effective against strains of chemical-resistant mosquitoes.
