That's how they appear to work.

I'm telling you, a gazebo with mosquito netting is the way to go up here if you want to sit outside and not be eaten alive and if you have the space to put one.

Ours is 16' x 14' and we have it on our deck. Not only does it keep the bugs away, it's also pretty handy if you want to sit outside in the rain. They're pretty inexpensive if you shop around but a bit of a chore to set up.

Chairs, loveseat, table, ottoman, chandelier? If you're gonna have all that crap, why not just stay indoors?

Because I can't see the fire flies from inside

I would love to have lawn furniture like that in my gazebo. Mine's a little more rustic.

Might as well be comfortable while enjoying the rewards of the yardwork.

That's way more practical than the monster screenhouse my father had. Zip, zip & zip and you're skeeter free. Portable too.

Not really portable blucher. Ours is screwed into the deck so it doesn't blow away in high winds.

It's weathered a lot of violent storms in the last few years and has really made our backyard lounging experience much more enjoyable.

It's one of the best investments I ever made for $350.

When AT&T transferred my father to PA they paid Allied Van Lines to disassemble, pack, move, unpack and reassemble his screenhouse that never was needed in PA at all. Sucker weighed over 1000 lbs. Your $350 was a huge tech savings based on new materials. In those days all screens were metal.

My setup won't allow it. I have an old deck, odd dimensions, I did think about trying to run netting around it. I'll see if my wife can't get some picks and email them to me.

My deck is pretty old too, needs to be replaced actually, but it's rectangular so the gazebo works for us. Fully screened and there's no bugs at all unless someone leaves the netting wide open.

Mosquito coils and citronnela candles never did the job.

I wish I had a Gazebo. One of my favorite skits form Kids in the Hall was about a Gazebo.
