Best way to escape from Mosquitos

Hi Guys,
         I am residing at Chennai, India.
For many months I had problem with mosquitos, they came in hundreds. I was not able to sleep well at night.

I tried every thing like

  • Mosquito Repellents
  • Mosquito Coils
  • Mosquito Liquid Repellents etc..

I even found Mosquito Repellent software in the internet, funny isn't?

But later found out that the only best way to escape from mosquitos at night is to use Mosquito Nets.
Yes after trying all the above I tried Mosquito Net, it is just Rs 200.
No smoke from Coils, no smell from Mosquito Repellents.
No waste of money.
Now I can sleep well at night.

Just try this..
