No See Um Screen Mod
Just returned from several weeks in Florida that included a stay at Collier Seminole State Park in the Everglades. We usually run the exhaust fan on low speed with the screened windows cracked open at night. Found out that No See Ums were coming through the factory screens so we closed up, kicked on the AC and got the critters before they got us. It is nice to have a white ceiling liner.
Once home, I removed the two rear quarter panel window screen frames and replaced the screens with No See Um screening. The screen frames were held into the window assembly with four clips each so popping them out and popping in the modified screen frames was easy.
With the screen frames removed, I pulled the vinyl spline out from each frame without damaging them. Then I used a spline roller tool to reinstall the vinyl spline with the No See Um screening. Also ordered a replacement Fantastic Fan Screen and added No See Um screening to that to stop critters when the fan stops during the night after the temperature setting has been reached.
The picture shows the difference between the regular screen on the bottom and a modified screen on the top.
Looking forward to testing them out when we head up to the Bay of Fundy later this year.
