      True. I once had an afternoon and evening with small "sweat bees" that
      were everywhere at Spy Rock in Virginia. A couple of those bees worked
      their way into the habitable space. Mosquitoes almost never have. I
      don't have enough experience with black flies to say how the unattached
      netting will work with them.

      Yes. But I would be using the mosquito net instead of my travel pod,
      and I would be using a lighter weight quilt with an inch of insulation
      instead of 3 inches.
