I suppose you could accomplish the same thing with a ratchet strap..

A reputable factory yurt cover will have an efficient design to secure it to the platform skirt. How good that is at keeping out bugs beats me. As to bug proofing the yurt, someone on the forum mentioned using ratchet strap to bind the cover to the skirt. If I had bugs in the yurt that were entering between the cover and the platform skirt, I would strap it.

The granules and spray is good for both snakes and rats to stay clear.
It contains concentrated amounts of peppermint oil and other natural ingredients and seems to work well to repel the unwanted critters. and scents up the place like a newly unwrapped piece of gum - fresher smell ☺
