Mosquito Nets 4 U Large Mosquito Net For Beds Review
Mosquito Nets 4 U have the best portable mosquito net on the market because it’s large enough for the majority of beds, it’s very lightweight, and made from top quality materials.

It’s easy to hang as it has a foldable ring sewn into the net. Just shake it out and the ring opens to hang from a ceiling hook.
This net has no DEET insecticide. The quality of the net, which has 156 holes to match the World Health Organisation recommendations, is so good.
It comes in a travel-friendly storage bag and can be used over a king-size bed, a tent, a paddling pool, a cot, or anywhere you can hang 320 grams.

Vangold Pop Up Mosquito Net For Beds & Camping Review
Vangold Mosquito Canopy Pop Up Net is the easiest mosquito net to set up by far. It has a flexible frame with attached mosquito netting that pops open to form a rigid structure.
When open this rigid mosquito net will fit over a king-size bed. It measures 180x 200x 150 cms and will also fit over a picnic blanket, a paddling pool, or can be used to give pet birds some safe flying exercise!
It’s made from polyester cloth net with dense mesh to keep out mozzies but let in the fresh air.
It has a double door with two-way zippers for convenience and folds down to fit a 28- inch suitcase.

Even Naturals Mosquito Net Review
Even Naturals Mosquito Net is the best mosquito net for beds if you suffer from bites or have an allergy. This is because it has 380 holes per square inch which protect against the tiniest of mosquitos – not many mosquito nets offer this level of protection.
Measuring 80x71x80 inches the net will fit a cot right through to a king-size bed, a sofa, pool, or day bed.
The hanging system creates a square canopy with eight cords (they are included, as is a manual). This leaves plenty of space inside the safe zone and because it has two ‘door’ openings it’s easy to move about inside.
This is the best choice for a permanent cover. It’s top-quality, reinforced on wear and tear areas, spacious, and has no chemicals added.
If you want to put up a mosquito net and leave it in place, this is the best buy.
Mosquito Net Buyer’s Guide
There are many levels of quality when it comes to the best mosquito net protection.
Read on to discover what makes the best mosquito net for your money.
Mesh size is important as mosquitoes are tiny creatures that can wiggle through poor quality mesh.
Go for the smallest hole per inch you can afford as this allows fresh air flow but offers great protection. Look for a minimum of 156 holes per square inch.
How to Hang It
This is the tricky part of mosquito net protection – how to hang it up!
The best mosquito nets include a screw or an adhesive patch so you can position the net directly over a bed.
If this isn’t included you could tuck it behind the headboard or an overbed picture, but that doesn’t offer the same protection.
Alternatively, there are rigid framed pop up mosquito nets that are very popular with campers and parents.
Entrance and Exit
Moving about in bed or getting up in the night can dislodge openings and allow mosquitoes into sleeping areas. This is best avoided with overlapping edges.
Doors on either side are handy as they allow two people in and out with disturbing the placement.
If you are travelling with a mosquito net a sturdy storage bag is essential to avoid rips.
Once a mosquito net is torn you have to sew it up ASAP or mozzies could get in and savage you. Avoid accidental damage with a tough storage bag.
A mosquito net is one of the best ways to protect yourself from biting insects, especially if you are sleeping. You can’t go wrong with one of my recommendations.
The best advice is to choose the best mosquito net for your activity and then look after it! Tears and rips mean its game over and result in nasty bites.
