You can just spray a light coat on the bottom outside of the hammock and your problem will be solved. I do that and it's very effective. For clothes I prefer to soak but hammock and other gear is better just sprayed lightly.
Ordered it on amazon. Hoping it works well. Looks like its used by most folks here!
A solution for the short term, until you treat with Permethrin, may be to wear a shirt to bed. I find that, even if I haven't treated recently, an athletic shirt worn to bed (so as to be as breathable as possible) keeps the skeeters from biting me. The offset of the weaves prevents them from being able to stick through the interstices of the fabric.
Hope it helps!

I will try that out. Sounds good.
A light bed sheet doubled should work fine. Just lay on it. Hennessy's jungle hammock is a Two layer thing, from what I recall. You wouldnt have to sew anything.
