I was in a particularly mosquito infested place... The buzzing kept me up at night. I thought the mosquitoes were inside the net (they weren't) because it was so loud. You could clap your hands and kill three mosquitoes. I never got bitten through the hammock... I was clothed, and if I feared being bitten, I would have put down a layer under me... blanket, etc.
That said, my elbows and forearms got eaten alive where they touched the net. Bugs bit through the net easily and I had soaked it in permethrin. I learned to keep my arms off the net after that.
