Why You Need a Hammock with a Bug Net
A good hammock bug net can mean the difference between a good night’s sleep and a night full of heat and frustration. On hot nights, many campers prefer to sleep outdoors. A hammock is the perfect way to enjoy a hot summer’s night outside. But what about the plague of insects that are buzzing about during the warmer summer months, especially during dusk and dawn? We think a hammock bug net should be an essential piece to any hammock-ers supply pouch. Turns out, these nets are not only to keep the bugs out. Here’s what we mean.
Enjoy The Views
Campers may argue: “Why not just blow off a hammock for an enclosed tree tent?” Truth is, tree tents and hammocks are really trending right now. That’s because they allow campers to elevate their camping experience, and to catch glorious views of their surroundings that you’d never see from the ground. By settling for a traditional ground tent, and being enclosed in a polyester shell, you’ve officially lost the views around you—the natural beauty, gone! Keeping the view and enjoying your surroundings is one reason why you should go camping with a hammock or tree tent, equipped with a hammock bug net.
Maintain Airflow During Hot Weather
No one wants to have to choose between remaining hot and bothered but insect free, or getting some fresh air to your skin but giving free rein to the bugs to bite you all night long. On one hand, you want to keep the creepy crawlies out, but on the other, you’re dying to unzip your sleeping space to catch a cool breeze.
Hooking your tent up with a hammock bug net means you won’t have to succumb to using a tent. Being roasted in a polyester tent is a decidedly less fun camping option during warm weather trips. So, beat the heat and get a hammock bug net—our Large Double-Bubble Insect Mesh is the perfect option to stay cool and bug-free all night!
Feeling Less “Exposed”
Let’s face it, sleeping out on a hammock can feel a bit intimidating for some. For those people, they may say it’s similar to the feeling of sleeping without a blanket. Why do we love sleeping with a blanket, even when it’s hot? We’re drawn toward that sense of safety and security while sleeping. In the same way, sleeping with an insect mesh can really counter the feeling of exposure on a warm summer evening. A quick fix to ease a skittish camper’s mind.
Keeping Out ALL Critters
A hammock bug net does not discriminate. First and foremost, these things will keep out the flying blood-suckers we’re most concerned about. But it doesn’t stop there. They will also keep out spiders, bees, flies, and all the other creepy-crawlers as well.
You know what else they’ll keep out—snakes! That’s right! How many stories have you heard where a snake is found slithering around a camper’s sleeping space after leaving things unzipped just a tiny bit? Our guess is at least once. These things happen, and it’s among the reasons to keep a good net hooked up to your sleeping hammock at all times—no matter the season!
Keeping Close to Fellow Campers
So, we already talked about how bug nets allow us to enjoy the views around us while hanging among the trees. Now let’s consider how they also keep us more engaged with your group of fellow campers. One of the great benefits of hammock camping is getting to enjoy it with friends and family. Hanging a bunch of hammocks around a campsite all within view of each other is makes it even more of a shared experience. Whether it be on a tree tent or hammock, a bug net is a good way to keep the bugs out without fully covering things up and cutting off the outside world. With a hammock bug net, you’ll be comfortable while staying in good company!
