See below: Hang it all around your bed (all 4 sides). If there's a canopy, it's easier to hang it from there. Otherwise, tack it to the ceiling. When you get into bed, close it up and make sure there's no opening. Also, spray the netting with mosquito repellent if it's not already on the netting. This will keep the mosquitoes away and decrease your chance of getting bit.
