Default Bee keeper's head gear/mosquitos

Has anyone on the list made himself a head cover such as bee keepers wear,
to keep predatory insects away from your face? If so, please share with me
how you did it, or where to buy one, etc.

Sporting goods stores sell camo head nets for hunters. You might also try
Cabela's on line.

I did. I bought a plain, inexpensive straw hat and sewed plain toole over it.
I'm not sure if I spelled "toole" correctly, but any fabric store would sell it
in many colors. I bought tan. I didn't do it for mosquitoes, but for gnats and
grasshoppers.

You can buy them in camping/hiking shops; ask for a midge or mosquito
hat. They work but the mesh is so small, imho it feels a bit airless
sweaty and claustrophobic inside one.
