Many people are familiar with insect screens that seal windows and doors to keep our home and work environments free from bothersome pests. Unfortunately, many households are all too familiar with the hassle that comes with bug screens and pets.
If you’re a pet owner and you want to install mesh to windows, doors and other entrances, pet mesh is the dream solution. Pet mesh is manufactured to protect damage occurring to insect screens from cats, dogs and other animals.
As well as keeping insects out and pets in, mesh screens are available in various designs depending on what exactly it is you want to do. From pet-proofing windows and housing birds to horticultural and agricultural purposes, there’s a mesh option to get the job done.
Here is everything you need to know about pet mesh and other mesh solutions for keeping animal-occupied environments safe and secure.
What is Pet Mesh?
Pet mesh is a strong type of netting used for screening doors and windows to keep insects out and to keep pets in. Usually made from a heavy woven polyester and coated with PVC, it is designed to be resistant to tears and fraying caused by paws and claws.
Pet mesh is primarily used for damage control, and is far stronger than regular insect screens. It is usually bought in pre-packaged rolls or sold by the meter for convenience. You’ll often only need a small amount to cover a window or door frame. It’s a great answer to pest control that you can do yourself, without having to call in a professional.
What are the Options?
When it comes to pet mesh, there are various types to buy depending on the kind of result you’re after. Standard pet mesh is ideal for domestic animals like cats and dogs. It is manufactured from extra strong PVC coated polyester, allowing protection from both pets and small children. It is also available in a strong aluminium mesh which may be required if you are in a bush fire risk area.
Pet mesh is the resolution for pet-proofing entrances and exits, but if you’re having issues with other wildlife, there are other variations of mesh available on the market. From vermin and snake mesh to birdcages and fencing, there’s lots of choices purposefully designed to meet the required needs.
If it’s a DIY venture, you’ll need to consider the length and width needed to fit your door and window frames. There’s also multiple strengths and a selection of materials on offer to suit the desired outcome.
If you’ve decided that it’s time to ward off mosquitos and other flying insects with animal-resistant screens, pet mesh is your best course of action. You’ll no longer need to regularly replace damaged fly screens because of paws, claws and little hands.
Pet mesh allows you to open your home to ventilation through doors and windows without worrying about pests and the nuisance they cause.
Alternatively, if pet mesh is not the answer and it’s another meshing solution you need, there are plenty of useful supplies to do the job. Whether you’re tackling vermin problems or building a beautiful birdcage, be sure to shop for the safest and the most secure mesh type.
