Where did you get the mesh or what do you make it out of? Very cool idea, I plan to borrow it :p

It's called Plastic Canvas and is made for needlepoint. I use it in my FF cultures in place of excelsior. It can be washed and reused over and over again (though I'd recommend throwing it away if the culture develops mold). Nice thing about it is that it's cheap. You can buy it at Michael's or other craft stores for about $0.30 a sheet. The sheets are 10 1/2" by 13 1/2", so you can cut enough for a half a dozen cultures out of one sheet. It comes in many different counts (number of little square holes per inch) and sizes, but I'd recommend just getting the cheapest. The flies don't seem to care much. Here's a pic:
