    bugnet

    Watch this video in it he show the size of the holes. A little over half a mm both ways so I am sure it will keep those midgets out.

    Why do people use black material Instead of white for netting? Wouldn't black be hotter than white on summer days

    Re: My DIY progress for four

    I have been really busy with work this week but last night I took the harbor freight 96x72 cargo net and took it apart which gave me a total of 100 feet of shock cord for 8.99 ( I have a coupon) which after tax come out to about 10 cents a foot. Tonight I will make the rest of the bags and hopefully tomorrow I can get them all hung to set the ridge lines to everyones liking to I can start making the bugnets.
