Royal Guard® is the first commercially available Long Lasting Insecticidal Net (LLIN) of its kind that is engineered to provide vector control through both the personal protection of traditional nets, as well as a reduction in fertility of any mosquitoes that manage to survive exposure to the products pyrethroid active ingredient. The intended benefit of the insect growth regulator, Pyriproxyfen, is to reduce the fertility of adult female mosquitoes and therefore create an overall reduction in the vector population.

Royal Guard® LLINs are made from 100% high density polyethylene offering both excellent value and performance characteristics.
Royal Guard® LLINs contain both a standard pyrethroid insecticide (Alphacypermethrin) and an insect growth regulator (IGR), Pyriproxyfen. Both active ingredients are fully incorporated into the polymer structure of the yarn. This provides a high chemical reservoir that yields industry leading wash retention, storage stability and biological efficacy.
Royal Guard® LLINs are available in both 120 denier and 150 denier versions incorporating technical grade Alphacypermethrin and technical grade Pyriproxyfen complying with World Health Organization (WHO) specifications.
Benefits & Features
Royal Guard® is highly effective and does not require re-treatment throughout its useful service life of three or more years. Royal Guard® is made from high-density polyethylene, which gives it superior strength, durability, wash resistance and personal protection for the insecticidal treated nets user. Royal Guard® incorporates state of the art master batch technology from Avient, one of the world’s leading specialty chemical companies.
DCT’s Royal Guard® LLIN marks a new step in next-generation vector control. By incorporating both a powerful insecticide and insect growth regulator, it offers what a very effective insecticidal treated nets for fighting pyrethroid resistant mosquitoes. Royal Guard® kills mosquitoes on contact or reduces the fecundity of surviving females, which is essential for decimating resistant vector populations. Backed by 10 years of research, Royal Guard® has recently been added to the WHO’s PQ list of vector control products.
