    Skeeter Question

    Considering the mod 4 for my HH asym. If the skeeters are bad how are you dealing with trapped skeeters when you get into the hammock and zip in? With the bottom entry it seemed to be a non issue.

    I treated mine with permethrin and keep it zipped until I get in.

    just got my mod4 , and its really awesome. although, i've never used it prior to the mod, so can't speak for the birthing slit and bugs.

    i also have a wbbb- so encountered some of the same problematic thoughts regarding zipping skeeters in. they found there way in, but in bug season, they always snuck in, be it a tent, side entry hmmk, whatever. i'm just quick and judicious about getting in.

    i've never done the permethrin soak, but dudes say it works real well. i know its safe, but i just don't like the idea of relaxing in a chemical dip.
