    Well you are over thinking it.. Mosquito's are attracted to birds... most of the year... so several studies put them about 30 - 50 feet up in the trees.... yes bright white does reduce the bites... so does Sawyer as it repels them.. Gin and quinine doesn't work as its watered down today...(not enough medicine to sour the sweat and blood)
    There was an Old Man with a owl,
    Who continued to bother and howl;
    He sat on a rail, And imbibed bitter ale,
    Which refreshed that Old Man and his owl
    .WOO

    They probably buy canvas now but in times past they made their own tent fabric from animal hair and made it black with soot.

    even when the sun is hot
