holes in screens

Does anyone else have screens that are 'sprouting' holes ? We have discovered numerous small holes in our screen door and other window screens. It seems as though the screening itself is simply disintegrating in odd places.
Now what ?
We have a 2008 27' FB Special Edition Safari.
Many thanks for your help. Donna and Jeff

I haven't heard of that one before. We replaced the original screen on most of our trailer a couple of summers ago.

Perhaps it was a cleaner that was used on them at some point?

Questions: are the screens made from a plastic material? Is this problem occurring on ALL of your screens?

If it's to be, it's up to me.
