When I go for vacation in my wife place in the Philippines in the Mother's house when they will sleep in the night they are using a "Mosquito Net" every night but here in Kuwait we are not using any maybe because the Country that we have is a Hot Country and their is not much Mosquito to be seen as we do not have an open water.... what about you Guys in the place that you have, Are you using a Mosquito Net when sleeping in the Night...////??/

We never used a mosquito net when I lived in Kuwait. I didn't even know what a mosquito was....I've never seen any there. But in India, we use a mosquito repellant. But I find that keeping the doors and windows closed at dusk works well for me (we live on the 6th floor and the mosquito menace is not as bad as on the lower floors). The only time I've used a mosquito net is when we lived with my in-laws. They prefer it...but I find that mosquitoes tend to get in when I wake up in the middle of the night to use the toilet and then I have to switch on the light and shoo them out. the mosquito repellants seem to work better...but we stopped using them when we thought it wasn't healthy for the kids when they were babies. I don't use any now.

I also wonder on that on where does the mosquito came from because in the morning there is none of them but when the night would come in there during the time of sleep you have to used this net otherwise when you wake up in the early morning you have all your body suck in this pest...

I live in the USA so I don't need one - at least not in the house. If I was camping tho, I would surely need one right now. The mosquitos are really bad here in Florida right now after all the storms we've had. We have to put bug repellent on to go outside especially at night or early morning. But as far as sleeping in the house, no, we don't have to do that.

I live in the Philippines and yes I had experienced using mosquito nets when I was a child especially when we visit my pop's province. But as this country progresses, mosquito nets can now be found only on those rural places wherein electric mosquito repellent are not yet in use. As of the moment, we are using a plug-in device from baygon to get rid of those pesky mosquitos. I read in one comment that air condition helps in minimizing mosquitoes, but it doesn't happen in our case, even if the A/C is in turbo cool mosquitoes still roam our house, so a plug-in mosquito repellent is really needed.

Hello iyah10, In my mother's house in my hometown, we still use a mosquito coil or sometimes we just spray to get rid of mosquitoes. But in my home in the city, we don't use any. There is no mosquitoes here and since I can't sleep in an air conditioned room, we turn on the fan every night.
