I have had reasonable success making covered wagon hoop house covers to grow peppers and tomatoes in.  Enough so I have invested in a couple double layered cold frames that I gave 1 foot higher walls to accommodate them.

Hi CC!
I use a cicada netting I bought on clearance at HD. They no longer carry it. I called the manufacturer and they are not making it anymore.

Both my insect barrier and cold barrier cover cloths from Johnnyseeds has so far lasted thru 4 full years with lots of life left in them to go.  I highly recommend them for any garden.

Thanks, QB.  I just checked it out and one of the reviews at Johnny's said it tore in hi winds.  Wouldn't work here.  Sad

By this time of year the tulle tears in the wind, and the row cover I bought last yr at Agway tore also.  I'm thinking that the cicada netting might let the wind flow thru without tearing.

I put the cicada netting on after I planted and haven't taken it off yet. The weave is 1/4 inch and keeps most everything out. Used it on all my gardens, even the corn. Used pvc to make hoops and stretched it over. The smaller bees got through and did their job so I will use it again next year. And not one cabbage worm this year.
