How to deal with mosquitoes? (Amsterdam)

So after a few weeks I understand why my friend here had a mosquito net! Mosquitoes kept me awake the last couple of nights even though I am on the third floor and not close to an canal. And the bites are not fun...

I'm in a temporary apartment so don't want to go the net route yet. Plus, I'm not sure how long the problem will last. Keeping all the doors and windows closed at night is possible but then it would be very hot and stuffy here.

So what are the recommended solutions? Bite the bullet and buy a bed net? Close all the windows and buy bug spray (plus a fan)? Or is there some other clever solution I don't know? Advice appreciated.
