I will be making a bug net or bug sock sometime in the future, and I was wondering how these materials compare for the application.

My three main questions are these.

What do each weigh per sq yd?

How expensive is each (and where did you get it if you got a deal)?

Are they equally effective in keeping bugs out? I need to stress that some of my hanging will be done in Louisiana swamps, and I need protection both from the Louisiana state bird (the mosquito), and no-see-ums.

Thanks for your help!
