    Can someone make me a bug net?

    hi i was hoping someone could make me a good bug net. I haven't slept outside in my hammock yet because of the bugs. I have a Kammok Roo.

    If you are willing to spend about 60$ then get an ENO guardian. That's what I personally use in the tropical climate I am in. You might be able to find another brand that's a little cheaper if you do some research. Btw nice hammock. If I ever buy a hammock (I'm a DIY kind of guy) I would probably look at the roo... Good luck.

    thanks I finally decided to go with that. It is really nice and I'd say worth it. I slept in it for a week in my basement and it was great.

    Or even a Warbonnet Travel Net. $65.00 and easier to deploy than the ENO net.

    I'm a newb here, but I just bought a cheapie bugnet from Cabela's for $15 and just drape it over my ridgeline and suspension and let it hang down (no sewing, no nothin). I treated hammock and bugnet with permithrin and have been absolutely bug free so far.

    ETA...I live in hellish mosquito conditions, Missouri River river bottoms. Maybe the drought has helped this year.

    Well done. Thats an effective cheap method for keeping the bugs off. I'd totally steal your idea if I didn't already have mine...
