My polytunnel is too hot

Hello,  I wonder if anyone can help me.  my polytunnel is seriously too hot.

I have seen that some people have a kind of mesh covering the doors so you can keep them open and keep nasties out.

Does anyone know the easiest or cheapest way I can obtain one these nets.

I have looked and looked and cant find anything.

Hope you can help me

    You could just go buy some yards of tulle from a craft store, and make a 1x2" wood frame that fits into the open door slot, held in with a latch or two on either side.

    My mum has one of these for the patio doors on her conservatory....

    Other brands are available image. I'm sure I've seen cheap ones in B&M bargains.

    I suspect it's more to keep birds out than bugs, so almost any kind of netting attached to a frame should do the job.

    Kitty - got one of those curtains last week for my greenhouse (I stress out madly if bees go in and I'm always rescuing them) for £3 in one of those cheap shops whose name looks like Bum! I have just to get it up - when the wretched rain lets me out of the house.
