Which mesh - standard & midge

Which mesh do I need?

We offer two types of mesh with this screen. Your choice will depend on which insects you wish to keep out.

Standard insect mesh - 18 x 16 holes per square inch.

Examples of insects this mesh will keep out:

Bees & Wasps, Bluebottles, Cluster Flies, Crane Flies, Daddy-Long-Legs, House Flies, Hornets, Ladybirds, Mosquitoes, Moths, Butterflies and Spiders.

Standard insect mesh is designed and manufactured to ensure maximum visibility (through the screen) ensuring as much light passes into the room as possible.

We recommend this mesh for all areas of the UK except in parts of Scotland where Midges are present and other parts of the UK where Corn Flies and Thunder Bugs/Thrips are present.

Midge mesh - 30 x 20 holes per square inch

This mesh will keep out:

The same as Standard insect mesh + Midges, Corn Flies and Thunder Bugs/Thrips

Midge mesh has a tighter weave than Standard insect mesh to ensure Midges, Corn Flies and Thunder Bugs/Thrips cannot penetrate, however, the visibility and airflow is reduced slightly.

We recommend this mesh in parts of Scotland where Midges are present and other parts of the UK where Corn Flies and Thunder Bugs/Thrips are present.

Please note - genuine Midge mesh is 30 x 20 - anything less e.g. 20 x 20 or 18 x 16 will not keep midges out.
