FAQs For This Product
Will Fibreglass Insect Mesh Stick To Plastic?
Fiberglass insect mesh is typically not designed to stick to plastic surfaces. In most cases, the mesh is installed using a separate frame or mounting system that is screwed or fastened onto the window or door frame.
However, fiberglass insect mesh can be installed on some plastic surfaces, such as PVC window frames, using an appropriate adhesive or tape. It is important to choose an adhesive or tape that is suitable for both the fiberglass mesh and the plastic surface, and to follow the manufacturer’s instructions carefully.
Before installing fiberglass fly net mesh on any plastic surface, it is a good idea to test a small area first to ensure that the mesh adheres properly and does not damage the plastic.
Can Flies Get Through Fly Net?
While fly netting can be an effective way to keep flies and other flying insects out of a space, it is important to note that no screen mesh is 100% effective in preventing all flies from entering a building. Some flies, particularly small or young flies, may be able to pass through the mesh holes or find other small gaps or openings around the screen that can allow them to enter.
However, the density of the mesh and the size of the holes can play an important role in determining how effective the screen is at keeping flies out. A finer mesh with smaller holes is generally more effective at preventing flies from entering, while a coarser mesh with larger holes may allow some flies to pass through.
To maximize the effectiveness of fly netting, it is important to choose a high-quality mesh that is specifically designed for keeping out flies and other flying insects, and to ensure that the mesh is installed properly and securely, with no gaps or openings that can allow insects to enter. Regular cleaning and maintenance of the screen can also help to ensure that it continues to provide effective protection against flies and other pests.
How Do I Clean Fly Net?
Cleaning fly netting regularly is important to ensure that it continues to provide effective protection against flies and other insects, as well as to maintain its appearance and durability. Here are the steps to clean fly net:
- Remove the fly netting from the window or door frame if possible. If the mesh is attached using a frame or mounting system, carefully remove the frame or detach the mesh from the mounting system.
- Gently brush the surface of the mesh using a soft-bristled brush or a clean, dry cloth to remove any loose debris or dirt.
- Prepare a cleaning solution by mixing a small amount of mild detergent or soap with warm water.
- Dip a soft-bristled brush or clean cloth into the cleaning solution, and gently scrub the surface of the mesh, working in a circular motion. Avoid using abrasive scrubbers or brushes, which can damage the mesh.
- Rinse the mesh thoroughly with clean water, using a hose or showerhead, and ensuring that all soap and cleaning solution is removed.
- If necessary, repeat the cleaning process on the other side of the mesh.
- Allow the mesh to air dry completely before reinstalling it in the window or door frame. Avoid using a heat source or direct sunlight to dry the mesh, as this can cause it to shrink or become damaged.
How To Fit A Fly Net Behind Soffit Vent?
Fitting a fly net behind a soffit vent can be a bit tricky, but with the right tools and some patience, it can be done. Here are the general steps you can follow to fit a fly net behind a soffit vent:
- Measure the size of the vent opening, and purchase a roll of fly netting that is at least several inches larger on all sides than the vent.
- Cut a piece of fly netting from the roll, ensuring that it is large enough to cover the entire vent opening with several inches of overhang on all sides.
- Position the fly netting over the vent, ensuring that it is centred and level. Use spring clamps or masking tape to hold the netting in place.
- Use a flathead screwdriver or similar tool to carefully tuck the edges of the netting behind the soffit or into any gaps or channels around the vent opening. Be careful not to tear the netting or damage the soffit.
- Use a staple gun or similar tool to attach the netting to the inside of the soffit or to any wooden framing around the vent. Be sure to staple the netting securely, but avoid using too many staples, as this can cause the netting to sag or bunch up.
- Trim away any excess netting using a pair of sharp scissors or a utility knife.
- Inspect the netting to ensure that it is secure and in place, with no gaps or openings that can allow flies or other insects to enter.
