Hi all, it is time for me to replace the screen mesh on my gable
louvers, as it is a tight mesh, and rather clogged. Looking at new
louver assemblies at the local Ace dealership, I notice that the screen
mesh is about 1/4" square. While this would provide more ventilation
than a tight mesh, my concern is that hornets might find their way into
the attic, as they enjoy building nests under the louvers.
I wouldn't suspect that they would last very long in a hot summer attic,
but I would generally prefer not interacting with them when I have work
to attend to up there.
So, is 1/4" mesh an appropriately small enough size for a gable louver
vent? What say you?
