Frequently Asked questions
Be suspended underneath a tarp?
Probably not. Tarps generally don't have a central point from which the Mosquito Pyramid Shelter could be hung, and the height of the shelter would require pitching the tarp a long way from the ground. Our recommendation would be the Escapist Inner Bug Tent.
Be treated with permethrin?
Yes. A spray-on or wash-in permethrin treatment will not harm the shelter's materials.
Net Shelters Please note:
Insect Shield® versions cannot be purchased in Canada.
The Mosquito Pyramid Shelter is designed to be suspended from a hostel/hotel room ceiling. It does not have poles or a frame.
If you are looking for the lightest, most compact mosquito shelter, check out the Nano Pyramid Mosquito Shelter.
Protect against no-see-ums?
No. 500 holes per square inch is great for mosquitos and most other bugs, but no-see-ums require a mesh with at least 1200 holes per square inch. A no-see-um net material will have reduced airflow as a result.
