Dealing with insects flying in the box

Does anyone have any ideas about dealing with insects flying in and being a aggravation to coaches and clients? We are in S. Florida so I know there is going to be some insect action.

Re: Dealing with insects flying in the box

Make it a WOD! I envision flyswatters and a lot of jumping...

no seriously, if you are like other box owners, you probably like to leave the doors open. if they are driving you that crazy...then invest in some screens. you can still leave the doors open, but maybe manage the bugs a little better.

I'm thinking some sort of lightweight screen that can be hung from bay doors.

Re: Dealing with insects flying in the box

what about something like this?

i know it is an aussie site but am sure there is similar in the US

otherwise perfect the great australian salute combined with breathing thru clenched teeth to filter out flying insects
