No matter how much people enjoy camping, there’s literally no one who enjoys sharing the activity with mosquitoes. Plainly stated, mosquitoes suck…literally and figuratively. That’s why today we’re checking out the value of a mosquito net for camping.

We dedicated an entire post to mosquito repellent for camping, and shared some other ideas for repelling them in a chemical-free way in our post, “Keep Mosquitoes Away Without Bug Repellent“.
