I am sitting here at my computer. It's very hot weather. I dont have
an AC. I have a large fan in the window on the other side of the
house blowing outward. I have the window open above my computer with
a standard screen. There are no holes in the screen, yet these tiny
bugs are coming in and flying into my face by the handfulls. I
finally shut off the light in here which helps, but does not stop them
entirely, and the air coming in this window (from fan on the other
side), just sucks them in here. I have never seen any finer (smaller)
screen sold. What can I do to stop this really annoying problem?
Look for mosquito netting at a fabric store. It's WAY smaller than your
average screen. The only downsides I've seen is that is gets really slack
when warm and it blocks the view a fair bit. Definately an improvement when
the small bugs are out!
Thanks for the feedback. I'll give this a try. These bugs are very
annoying. To the person that said spend $80 for an AC, it's not the
cost of the AC, it's the hundreds of dollars added electric bill, and
besides that, I dont like AC. I like fresh air in warm weather.
I suppose I will have to wrap the netting around the whole screen and
push it in place, huh?
