Even though I have seen very large hoops on the market which are ideal for hanging over a double bed, in case you have a canopy, buy some netting by the lawn and go to town!

Tip: Reasonably priced mosquito netting can be made from cotton, nylon or polyester, and while some net size of 1.2 millimeters stops mosquitos, you are going to need a bigger net of .6 millimeters to stop very small insects. So if you want netting that’s beyond cosmetic, make sure that you locate the right net for your region.
