    I'm a complete magnet for mozzies. Finally, after decades have found something that works for me..... Avon Skin So Soft !! However, want a net this yr. Ideally just a very large loose net that we can drape over side awning while outside or over back of van when we're in with doors open. Failing that thinking maybe a bell tent shape one cld work. Anyone have any ideas about great products or recommendations of where to buy decent one of either ? Thanx :)

    Wouldn't buy a proprietary product but instead buy fine mesh net curtain material and sew your own to fit the application. Use bunjies on the headers and hems to secure. But most importantly have plenty of the skin so soft on your exposed bits especially when sleeping.

    The mozzies really love me and I have tried everything including skin so soft but it irritates my skin so stopped using that. I find that Jungle Formula works well.

    If you go to this site they have a really good range of outdoor fabrics so you should be able to find some suitable net if you want to make your own http://www.profabrics.co.uk

    Sometime ago I bought a proper mosquito net from Aldi but haven't seen any recently.
