tent necessary for Negev in early October?

Do we need a tent for sleeping in the Negev in early October, or will a sleeping bag (under the skies) be enough? How about scorpions and other animals?

No, it's not neccessary.

Personally, I like tents all years round, but most people don't take them at all. In the negev there's usually no rain in October, so no real need. I would take a mosquito net - also, not neccessary; you can make do with DEET or any insect repelent.

Thank you very much, this is a very helpful answer! That saves quite some weight;-)
