Any ways to add bug screens to older tent doorways?

We have a fabulous Outdoor Revolution Starcamper 4 tent which has only one drawback - the doors don't have bug screens to keep the flying beasties out on a hot day (like today!). Are there any 'stick on' lightweight mesh panels on the market, do ya know?

Not sure but you can buy a spray which you spray all over the outside canvas of your tent. It is brilliant at keeping flies away and only needs doing once a year.

Otherwise try google or go to a fabric shop and make something perhaps?

Lidl do insect mesh and provide a self adhesive strip with velcro on it. Depends on how wide your door is, but you do cut it to size.

You can buy that bug screen fabric by the metre. I have a few metres lurking with good intentions to make a big screen for our tent porch.

I think I found it in black but this is the sort of thing. If you don't want to sew zips/Velcro you could probably get creative with bits of elastic to secure it onto the guying points.

Lucky, I bought the ALDI version last year so that I could sort out a fly screen on our tent the next time it was up. Yes I remembered to take it with me this week, no I didn't remember scissors. Oh well, maybe next year!

Thanks - I'll try Lidl & Aldi, & if no luck order some!
