You evidently have to use a smaller mesh screen. Experiment one window
at a time. Put a screen material over your window temporarily and close
all other access. If they are still getting in, go to a smaller mesh
until you find one tight enough and go with that. Of course, metal will
last longer than plastic but costs more.
