Anti Malaria Mosquito Nets Serve As Garden Fences
"A FRANCE 24 Observer in the eastern city of Goma recounted how insecticide-treated bed nets are increasingly being used to fence off gardens and hung up to protect fruit trees from insects.
 
This situation is not isolated to the Democratic Republic of Congo, but is also practiced in other malaria-blighted African countries such as in Kenya, Rwanda and Uganda, where mosquito nets have reportedly been used for making fishing nets, wedding gowns, house decorations and poultry enclosures. A large part of the misuse is blamed on the lack of education on the nets’ proper use."
