    BIAS Buginator is a bottom-entry bugnet with shock-cord cinches on the ridgeline openings, rather than the open ridgeline of the Fronkey bugnet. Some people also use velcro or omni tape for the ridgelines, but I prefer the Buginator's system. Tried the omni tape and didn't like it.

    I have been using a simple 10'L x 8'W piece of mosquito netting for a couple of years now with no problems. (You can buy one on ebay, cheap or get a high quality one like I have online) I think my 10x8 cost me around $40- but it's really high quality polyester.
    I just drape it over a ridge line and roll the two ends together and clip them with whatever is available, cloths pins, paper clips, whatever. The sides hang down against my hammock and just off the ground and I haven't had a mosquito bite me in the hammock yet. And, it's easy to get in and out of the hammock.
    Just an idea.

    I just ordered a BIAS Buginator, I really like the construction of it and the cinch closure on the ends and entry vs a zipper entry.

    I really hate zippers - they inhibit quick escape from hammock/bugnet. In fact, the only zippers in my entire hiking/camping kit are on my Ribz front pack.
