I don't think you get metal fly mesh. It's like plastic stuff, very fine only a couple of mm

i have netting across windows to protect house buns from flies and me from wasps and spiders:lol:

i have seen metal mesh but its brass and bloomin pricey!

bif chewed a hole in my fubreglass mesh and ive panicked ever since.it was a hole about the size of a fingertip and she didnt eat it she just spat it out like she does her meds:lol: scared me witless tho!

heres the places.

pricey stuff
a 50cm by 50cm steelmesh fine works out at 25!


stuff i use


i personally use the polyester stuff but last year i got the fibreglass stuff but my cats wrecked both:shock: maybe i should go for the steel mesh:lol:

thanks looks like i will use the normal stuff i get (like the second link) just done a quote for the window will come to just over 90!! :shock: i suppose i could make it half that though and only go across the opening window not sure how i would secure the frame though

Could be a cheapskate and use net curtains (even cheaper from charity shops)? If you needed some strength you could put normal wire mesh behind it?

if you scroll down to the very last item on the page..its polyester but much stronger than the usual soft window mesh;)


its 90cm wide and can be supplied by the metre at 5.99 inc postage..or by a 25metre roll at an aranged price by them and you via email etc

I got mine on ebay. It's black and comes with self-adhesive velcro tape with attaches to the frame and the net just sticks to it. Very cheap.
