Yeah mine works great in my yard. Maybe I can get the marina owner to deploy a few.A mosquito magnet has the advantage that once it has run for about a month, the number of mosquitoes in the area will drop dramatically, since mosquitoes don't travel much further than 300' from where they're hatched.
Yeah but that stuff really stinks. or at least it used to when I last used it some years ago. Off has a new product called click off or something, that is worth a try.a friend mentioned that lining up a few citronella candles in from of the companion way works well. I'll be trying it this summer.
I was curious if there was a way to rig this up without a bimini? I almost bought one at walmart the other night based on this thread before I realized the side screens and canopy are sold seperately! Can the screens themself zip together to make a big mosquito net?From awhile back

<HR style="COLOR: #d1d1e1" SIZE=1><!-- / icon and title --><!-- message -->Not sure this really counts as a project (other than the Admiral says it does). The creek and river we are on in NC has a major mosquito issue several times a year, so something is needed to keep them off if you want to enjoy the cockpit in the evening. I found a simple solution using a Walmart $30 screen siding that are sold for 10' x 10' canopy gazebo's.
I simply gathered up the the parts that attach to the gazebo frame with some line and I lay that over the bimini. The bottom has elastic straps that attach nicely to the bimini hold downs and it even has 2 zippered entries for easy access. Here is the Admiral enjoying the results of this 'project.'
It is easy to sew mosquito net together, might be worth considering. You can just order a bunch of screen online and cut it to whatever size you want and sew it together with a regular sewing machine to make as big a piece as you want. It is already big, it comes in normal fabric sizes which is yards wide and as many yards long as you want. Mosquito net is also very inexpensive in bulk, you can buy enough of it that you can just go crazy with the stuff. Wrap your whole boat in mosquito net if you want, run it up the pole.I was curious if there was a way to rig this up without a bimini?
