U-screen / drain


urbanization leads mosquitoes to appear season-less.

Especially, the sewage treatment facilities installed in the basement of apartment buildings are warm all year round, constituting habitats for mosquitoes, which in turn move up into units, following pipes irrespective of seasons. So people cannot be free of mosquitoes coming from sewage pipes, however well they may secure doors.
U-shaped sewage pipes as seen in those for a washstand will free you from mosquitoes in winter.
