Anyone have ideas for mosquito netting a bed when you can't hang the net from the ceiling? Answered
I'm staying in a room in Southern Mexico with no AC for the next couple months. There is a lot of Dengue and Chagas transmission here, so I'm worried about the bugs. We leave the windows open at night because of the heat, and do not have screens for them. Even if we did have screens the insects could get in through the substantial cracks in the doors. I think netting the bed is the best idea, but I can't hang the net from the ceiling. It is too high, and the owner of the house wouldn't let me screw any eye hooks into it even if I had access to a ladder to get to it. I have been thinking about building a frame around the bed that I could hang the net from, but I don't have any tools here with me and would prefer a simpler solution if I can find one. Maybe even something like a couple wire arches over the bed to drape the net over, but I'm not sure what material would be best for that.
I'm not super handy, so I'm hoping you guys can help me out with some ideas!
