Greetings MissBossLady,

There is a way to fix your screen, you definitely want to keep the bugs out!


If the hole are by the seam then you will need to replace the screening and respline the panel. Stop by your local Home Depot, and pick up a screen repair kit!

The kit has everything you need to do the whole job!


We also have small pieces of 4x4 metal screen patches, with the toothed edge exposed, which allows you to fold the jagged edges around and over a hole.


When I was a kid we had a screen porch, it was my job to patch the holes before the panels were put up. I would stitch with a needle and thread, small fiberglass screen patches over the hole.....teedious job, looked a little rough, but it kept the bugs out!


I hope this helps!    Maureen
