    Take one anyway, they weigh next to nothing. They also keep other creepy crawleys out of your bed. I woke one morning to find a huge hairy spider on the outside of my mozzie net! I use one all the time now.

    how do you hang the net in a room? do most rooms have a clip on the ceiling? i can't imagine that you can just drill/pound a hook to the ceiling to clip the top of your net!

    take some spare string -- most bungalowa have loads of nails and stuff sticking out aroudn the place that you can tie a mosquito net to.

    I use sticky hooks that you can get from any cheap shop for $2 for 24. Or you can just take a couple of screw in hooks and re use them.
