I have a HH Explorer and I'm considering getting a Speer or ENO to save weight. I hike mainly in Ga and NC. I have never had any bug problems, although I've always had either a tent or the HH netting. Has anyone ever had a bad experience with bugs in this region to the point where they wished they had the netting, or was glad that they did?

How about other regions at different times of the year? (ones to avoid if going without netting)
