In a report of a newspaper, FG donated 62 million naira of mosquito net since 2009. The expectation is that most household should have a least one owned bed net being use while sleeping. However, in the course of interaction with mothers during immunization /anti – natal visit at primary health center in our local government area, few claimed receiving free donated treated mosquito net. Most of them could boast of two or three still being kept home but not in use.

All claimed to have the blue rectangular long-lasting insecticide-treated nets (LLINs) PermaNet® distributed by the government and NGOs. Few claimed to have purchased their mosquito from the pharmacy store while many do not own net at all. This is just an insignificant findings.

  • Perception and poor knowledge seem to be the problem here.
  • Dominating reason not for using the net even they buy one today, is that, the heat could be so much sleeping under mosquito net not to mention of power failure at most times of the night.
  • Difficulty in hanging the net is another reason for using mosquito net. 
  • Some complain of rectangular shape  making their room not attractive and not easy to take down in the morning.
  • Another concern is that some react to the chemical used on the net. Peppering sensation in the eyes for days and sometimes body hives.
  • Few claimed that most nearby pharmacy store do not sell mosquito net thus making it difficult to buy.
  • Many prefer the color conical mosquitoes net.

It is a suggestion that government and NGOs should stimulate the promotion and sensitization of people through radio and; television advertisement. This role of good perception will allow private partnership to drive and sustained the market.
