I'm specifically referencing these tiny, silent, vicious little bugs called no-see-ums, a type of gnat, that leave nasty, itchy welts as the only evidence of their presence. Bonus; by the time you've been bitten, most likely a bunch of times, it's too late and you'll be doing your best to mitigate the side effects while trying not to scratch yourself raw. Sounds pleasant, right? I'm gonna go with no on that one.
These little no-see-um miscreants are able to come right through normal screens and feast away so in order to give ourselves a space to escape to should we come under attack we're switching out our old hatch screens and making a companionway screen with no-see-um screens.
Fortunately our existing hatch screens we in good shape, all we had to do was remove the old screen and glue/sew the new screens in place.
|Cutting the seams got a little annoying with the seam tape.|
|Kind of hard to tell but the holes are MUCH smaller in the new screens|
