Researchers from Stanford University recently took the SansBug mosquito net tents to Senegal for a project on early language acquisition by children living in rural villages. Here’s an email from them:

“They worked great!” First Baptist of Fayetteville, TN sent a group of 44 to Uganda for 9 days this month. Sherry was kind enough to share this pic with us. Not only would it have taken a while to suspend 44 regular mosquito nets from those steel beams, but looking at that floor, tucking the nets under the mattress or sleeping bag would probably have frayed the material. Furthermore, the nets can become dislodged from under the sleeping bag during the night exposing you to mosquitoes. In a situation like this, the SansBug is the best choice, hands down.

The SansBug can now be shipped to 26 EU countries:
- Czech Republic
It is as much loved on the other side of the pond… here are some reviews on Amazon.co.uk:
“This has got to be the best idea invented to keep the bugs and creepy crawlers from interrupting your rest. Simple to use and fold away and it is very big and roomy.”
“Got him one of these to sleep in on his bed, and you should have seen this face when he snuggled up for bed feeling 100% safe. Thinking about getting one for myself now!”
“So now the SansBug is a bedbug-free-zone.”

Here’s an email from a Canadian Unite for Sight volunteer in Ghana:
This is a picture of my tent in Accra, Ghana. My tent was utterly fantastic. Many others had tents they had to assemble while mine popped up completely on it’s own! Also, it was quite easy to fold and store once you got the hang of it. I am so pleased with what I paid for my tent and how useful it was to me. I would recommend it to anyone travelling to an area where malaria is endemic.
Not only did the SansBug protect me from mosquitoes but it also helped me feel safe to sleep on top of any bed.

I worked in Haiti for 11 months, and slept in my SansBug mosquito net tent every day. I’ve used it on beds, grass and even concrete floors. I was working on the island of La Gonave as an Environmental Engineer, working for a DC-based NGO. I helped build treated drinking water facilities for the local communities.
Being lightweight and compact, it was easy for me to take around, especially while riding on the back of a motorcycle. If people didn’t see me coming, they knew I’d passed by when they spotted the round blue bag from behind!
Traveling on the airlines was even more fun – most people had to ask what it was, but one person even thought I was a circus artist of some sort! I took the SansBug as carry-on with 2 other small bags, and the airlines haven’t had much problem with me. I once had to place it in the closet space up front (where the pilots hang their coats) because it was a narrower plane and it wouldn’t be able to fit in the overhead bin. But again, the flight attendants were pretty accommodating. Sometimes it’s a tough fit for the net to fit through the security scanner, but I put it in diagonally and it usually works. Only once in Haiti it didn’t work but they removed it from the bag and patted it down so it was fine.
I would recommend the SansBug mosquito net tent to anyone looking for a quick and easy set up, and a stylish solution to keeping those bugs out. Especially useful is having the all-enclosed bottom tarp layer to keep the creepy crawlers out (particularly while sleeping on the ground).
