Avoiding the bite

My loft has old warehouse windows, the kind that pivot at the center, so it's impossible to put screens on them. In the summer I usually have the windows open at least part way for temperature control.

From time to time I'm awakened in the middle of the night after having been bitten repeatedly by some particularly obnoxious mosquito. It doesn't happen all that often, but when it does it drives me totally batshit. I'm trying to figure out a safe, low-impact solution that will keep those fuckers away from me. A net over the bed could work, but it would be an annoyance and would keep the cat from sleeping with me. Closing the windows isn't an option.
