    Great questions!

    It takes about 30-45 minutes to make one your first go at it.

    The cost of materials will vary depending on the person and materials. Tulle being cheaper than no see um and length of ridgeline etc.

    If you need a fabric long enough for a 110" ridgeline you will need 7 yards. You will have a little under a yard of it left over though.

    But, a breakdown for a 110" ridgeline would come out like this.

    7 yards of no see um fabric would be about $25 and 5-6 yards of shock cord would be about $1.40.
    So, the whole project would be roughly $26.40. Plus you would have plenty of fabric left over to make a couple sets of snake skins for your tarp and some other stuff too.

    If you used Tulle it would be about $16.00

    Fronkey, you just keep upping the bar. These are excellent and easy to follow directions. Well done as with all your vids. How much do your actors get paid?

    Thanks for the brake down. I would go with the no-see-um for sure.
    Again thanks and on the shock cord mod.

    I spent the afternoon hunting noseeum....Seattle fabrics seemed to have the best price at $2.99/yd and they sell the other goodies too. It's just kind of sad to pay $25 to build a bug net for a $14 hammock. Oh well.

    Thanks so much Syb!

    They had a lot of demands. Their own trailer, assistants, more cat nip and bacon. Man, those actors are a pain!

    Awesome, glad it worked for you.

    No see um all the way for me too. I like the stronger material when I'm out there. I'm clumsy and careless.

    How is their shipping? I heard it's a little steep on some things.

    It works!

    I'm attaching a picture of a bug net made Fronkey-style out of tulle. The occupier of the hammock is my cousin and hammock tester. You'll see I have a makeshift ridgeline made of mason line. The ridgeline of this bug net is 10' and it was made for this hammock, which is 11' long. I made a small stuff sack out of the same material as the hammock and with the bug net in the stuff sack the whole thing comes to 2.65 oz. I used mason line for the under channel instead of shock cord, because I find shock cord binds up on tulle.
