Could someone please help settle a debate before a fight breaks out?
If you wanted window screens that would prevent the tiniest of tiny
insects from getting in, is standard aluminum or standard fiberglass
better? Or are they both the same?
The important aspect is the seal around the edges. Also, an ant can get
through standard screening material. Here's a website of a company where we
ordered weep hole vents a few years ago, to prevent ants from getting inside
through the weep holes in the brick. They send a free fridge magnet too, to
keep them before your eyes. heh
www.wildlifedamagecontrol.com I don't know if they have that material big
enough for screens, but maybe you can find some useful info about windows
We haven't had a pest problem inside, but we used to get one waterbug once a
blue moon.. and we haven't had one since installing these.
Hope this helps,
I stand corrected. A little research shows that 20 mesh and finer is
available in stainless and zinc plated steel. However, you need to look
at the wire diameter since some of the fine wire mesh screens will be
hard to see through.
