When we say mosquito nets, we often imagine ourselves wrapping and rolling up a piece of itchy plastic that never folds in the way you like it. Others may not imagine anything in response, leaning towards the simplicity of the thought process, intentionally mishearing the nets for next, and making it sound like: “yeah mosquitos, what’s next?”, effectively avoiding the otherwise inevitable necessity of actually stopping and comprehending of what the mosquitos nets actually are, especially when being asked as if they have been suddenly awaken solely for this very purpose of making think of them.

In reality, it still remains questionable though how effective they are. These nets are only effective upon certain conditions, hence their use is conditional. Some of these important conditions are: there should be the actual mosquitos in the place. If there are no mosquitoes around it makes them absolutely of no use. Another condition is that the net should be properly unrolled and fastened, and it should not have any holes, otherwise the mosquitos would just find their way through.

With your thought simplicity, dear reader, you may notice nets are actually made of holes. To this I would have to make a further clarification. These are not holes – they are the openings! Please understand that they are different from the holes.

For these who live near rivers the mosquito nets turn out to be very useful. The mosquitos love dumping their eggs into rivers as they have an urge to do so. That makes them multiply and thus look further and further to look for the fresh supplies of blood, which becomes their food. After going completely wild, they start hunting on humans and humans have only one way to stop their invasion.

You know what this way is. I just don’t want to say that word again, as we’ve already mentioned it throughout the whole article many-many times.

On the other hand if there aren’t any rivers nearby, the mosquito nets become utterly useless. Some of the smart heads may argue that they might still be of another use. Well yeah, you can use them as effective dust collectors, or you can tear them into scraps and make the hoop-net for catching butterflies and crickets. So as you see, this question still remains open…
