Bugs still getting in thru Screen

Page 1 of 3  
I just replaced the screen on my office window. This time of year I can not be online without the window open (I refuse to pay the electric for an AC). Anyhow, the old screen had a small hole and tiny flying bugs were getting in. I bought that plastic screen which seemed to have the smallest holes. These damn bugs are still getting in. They fly in my face and are totally irritating. I even put duct tape around the edge of the screen frame where it meets the window frame, which seemed to fit tight anyhow, but I am desprate. How in the hell does one keep them out of the house? This is really starting to piss me off. (They are very small flys or gnats, or something).

If there's a water-source, deep plant cover, or a food-supply near the window, get rid of it. If your window is the brightest light in the immediate area, put another light somewhere nearby, to lure the bugs away from that window. If all else fails, try a furnace filter.

If you have any carrots in the house, get rid of them.

I should have been more specific.
You see, Bugs loves carrots - because HE IS a rabbit.

It helps to line the rabbit hole with peas first. That way when you 'nique up on him you just kick him in the pea hole.

move to Arizona
due to lack of water, almost no bugs exist in Arizona, especially no flying bugs
we do have scorpions, black widows, and rattlesnakes
but no gnats, flys, wasps, moths, or other crap that requires a bug-zapper in other parts of the country

That is hardly true, unless you are standing in a desert at high noon in the middle of summer. Arizona is a big state and there are plenty of moths and flies in some parts, but certainly not like humid areas such as the mid-west and east..

True..and the more golf courses they build the more humidity and bugs. There is no getting away from the pesty flies...even in the Desert. (maybe even worse.) At least from my experience living(nearby)Cochella one year in a tent.

There are plenty of gnats, flies, butterflies, moths, bees and wasps in Tucson AZ. Just depends on what time of year it is.
Also, there is plenty of water in monsoon season which is just about to begin.
