Window Screen

I am planning to replace all of my perfectly good window and door screen this winter. I want to use a much finer mesh as to keep out the no-see-ums, and other tiny bugs that just walk right in now.
I realize my airflow, and visibility will be reduced, but since my wife is a bugs favorite meal, that's of little concern.

Any one done this? What did you use?

I have seen some fine mesh screen, but it all looks much thicker than what we have now.

Anyone with experience?

You could contact a tent manufacturer and see if they can tell you their supplier. Some of the tents now have very sheer and fine "mosquito netting".

Start here maybe:

REI I think sells the mesh in bulk - they have a commercial side to their operation and sell materials for tents.

Home Depot sells the thicker bug/sun screening material.

It's great stuff.

I have used it at our office for over 20 years.

You can still see thru it, but not nearly as much.

You are looking for a 20/20 screen to keep the gnats out...we have the same issue here in coastal ga.

You can order the rolls online.
