    Hi all,
    I need some advise on door fly screening, The Hymer integral Fly screen has seen better days-when it's shut you could get a full grown rhino between screen & frame.
    I need to replace it with something decent, what about the chenille 'cat tails', or a two piece net weighted at the bottom????
    I do fancy the 'cat tails' as they seem easier to manage going in & out.:Eeek:

    I got two of these, one for the house and one for the MH.
    They seem to work ok.
    eBay item No. 200477585310.
    £17.99 no postage.

    This time of year Aldi do something similar. It had more drops than two and had to be cut to size. I bought one before we got the fixed one and went to midgey ridden Scotland it was ok, rolled up when not in use and place in the pocket above the drivers seat. I much prefer the fixed one, which is more effective too. If it is just the mesh that needs replacing can you not get some mesh and replace to make it look new and effective once more, or is it beyond redemption?

    Cat's tails work for me. Don't know about keeping midges out in Scotland though as I don't go there.

    Machine washable. Cost is £3.49.
