Window screens can be made of aluminum, fiberglass, metal wire, nylon, or polyester. Less common materials include galvanized steel, brass, copper, and stainless steel. Some screens are stretched in a wood or metal frame, while others roll into a pocket when not in use.
Window screens are wonderful because they allow you to have fresh air and sunlight without the annoyance of insects and other unwanted visitors in your home. Dirty screens become weak and damage easily. It’s always cheaper to clean your screens than it is to replace them, so keep that in mind when you’re thinking of putting it off another year.

An easy way to keep bugs away from the window screens, especially during bug season, is simply by spraying them with an insect repellent. There is a variety of natural and store-bought insect sprays that you can use on the outside of the windows. These contain smells that the bugs just don’t care for, so they won’t go anywhere near the window screen. You will often need to spray the screens on a daily basis during heavy bug season, such as during the spring and summer months, or when it gets especially humid. Spraying at night might be better if you have more difficulty with bugs attracted to your indoor lights.
