Mosquito net protects animals

Mosquito nets for animals? It seems to work, according to a Senior Officer with FAO's Animal Health Service in Rome.

According to Raffaele Mattioli, the Agency is trying to discover new, simple, environmental friendly tools to help farmers protect their livestock and increase their production. And since mosquito netting is known to ward off disease-carrying insects to protect human health, why shouldn't it work for animal health?

Raffaele Mattioli discusses the benefits of these insecticide-impregnated nets with UN Radio's Patrick Maigua in Geneva.
