    bug netting

    Ok I got my new so-seeum netting to replace the one I tore.

    Would you all reccomend sewing it or using velcro for easy removal. Keep in mind I would use it a lot in south Florida. Just curious. Thanks

    Nothing? Nada? No input at all. Not feeling the love here.

    Can you give a little detail on what you are trying to do? What bug net did you tear?

    Were I in Florida, I think I'd opt for removable netting. It gets so hot and muggy down there. I know you've got horrendous mosquitoes as well, at least in the swamps where I've been, but I'd want the option for more air movement when the bugs are not so bad.

    I live in Maine where hot weather is, unfortunately, almost never an issue, so I'm happy with my HH stock netting.

    I tore the no see-um netting attached to the hammock. It is held up from the ridge lines. It was sewn on but I am considering velcro to remove as needed.

    I'm using a set up similar to Risk's quarter weight hammock. Just another option.

    Kittery... that's not Maine... that's Northern Massachusettes.

    I'm one town north of Bangor.

    It's a suburb of Boston... Let's face it. I went to school in Bangor and I served in the County.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    It beats the hell out of so FL. WE have a house on the water all ready to buy and move into. Was in the family. 92 degrees here yesterday. I'll take what I can get.
