Mosquito netting has become an increasingly popular form of mosquito prevention. Mosquito netting is available in tarps, infant netting, tents and full body nets and is used to protect against mosquitoes, black flies and other biting insects. For your best protection, mosquito netting should have mesh with holes approximately 1.2 mm x 1.2 mm, which will allow enough room for air circulation but will prevent mosquitoes from reaching your skin. When working or walking, polyester or polyamide mosquito netting is your best bet because it offers lightweight, long-lasting protection. When sleeping outdoors, cotton mosquito netting is highly recommended because it provides the best form of comfort for sleeping.
