    KnowNothing

    Very new to hammock camping, live in Florida, what is the best way to keep skeeters from biting thru the bottom of my hammock; short of using an underquilt?

    Thanks; permethrin sounds the easiest; I've read about it and it seems there are different ways to use it; should I spray it on the hammock or on my clothes which I prefer not to wear while in the hammock in hot weather. My hammock is a Rhino Tuff; I know not to use regular bug spray because it will cause the fabric to melt. Does permethrin have the same effect on certain fabrics?

    +1 for permethrin. Mix it up into a small spray bottle and apply before a trip.
