Wow. What a great idea. That would be a lot easier to do than sewing up the fabric I bought last night. I have another tarp I picked up. I havn't tried it as a fly yet, but it's a side panel for a pop up canapy. Came with lots of tye outs that I can use as attach points for a fly.
I'll give it a try.
1. I like permethrin as well.
2. Since skeeters are attracted to CO2 as well as warmth, I wonder if most wouldn't simply be heading toward the no-seum netting? (Just an idle hypothesis with no research to back it up).
Permethrin, double layer hammocks, UQs, SSs or pads all solve the problem. An UQ or pad or SS (or some type of)under cover are needed by most folks most of the year. So that should take care of the problem. I bet even a skinny one layer IX UQ would do the trick, but I have not tested the theory.
Apparently, signature that I used from 2006 no longer tolerated so now deleted.
