Mosquitoes

Does anyone know where to get mesh panels/frames for windows to keep out mosquitoes. If all else fails I'll just try to buy some mesh fabric and stick it to the outside of the window frames. But wondering if the Swiss have something specific they use on their windows or patio doors?
Many Thanks

You'll get it at any DIY store like Bau & Hobby, Jumbo etc. Alternatively you could try planting Gerainiums in boxes on the window cills, the are great at keeping the little buggers out, and look nice too

Jumbo & co-o. Do it for fly screens, ikea for nets over the bed. Lots more suggestions if you search for fly or mozzy screens on the forum.

Re: Mosquitoes

Hi,
Most of the do it yourself places, like Coop Bau and Hobby have their idea of screen meshing. I think it is from a brand call Tresa...(or is that a toothbrush?) Anyway, it is a sort of cloth, which you can cut to size, and hang over your window with a velcro (spelling?)closure. Good luck!
