Default Reg window screen vs no see um screen

Anyone have any problems with D. melano ff escaping through reg window screen. I'm making some verts with vent holes and I wanted to get no see um screen but don't want/need a whole roll. Anyone have any extra no-see-um screen laying around?

I have regular windo screen over my ventalation on my tank and they go right thru, but it does seem to slow them down a bit... maybe distract them from the goal at hand. Definitly go for the no-see-um! Maybe check out some head nets at a camping store to cut up. There probably way to expensive though.

Should be able to find the Coughlan's No-see-um head nets for pretty cheap, under $5.00, also walmart should carry them.


Otherwise ...

Thanks for the heads up. That's cheaper than a 28 dollar roll.

When I make the screens, I just double the screen mesh and use 2 layers. I dont have any problems with escapees at all either.

You can also get a smaller piece of the No-See-Um screen at EMS:

EMS No-See-Um Netting : Buy the EMS No-See-Um Netting at Eastern Mountain Sports

Double laying the regular window screen should work as well, as has been mentioned.
