Insect Screens

A good method for keeping insects out of the house is to install insect screens at every window and door. It's almost 100% effective.

They have tiny wheels to slide across when we need to open the windows.

For single windows, these two open like a door.

When it's dusty, all you have to do is just take them out to the bathroom and spray them with water. Leave them to dry before placing them back. I do this weekly.

I find these work so much better than the magnetic insect screens. These are stainless steel.

    1. Strips of magnets are glued to the perimeter of the window grille bars. Then the netting is which has metal strips all around it is placed on the magnet.
