How to make DIY insect screens

First of all, you have to figure out the size of the screen that you want to install: measure the height and width of the window in two (or even better, three) areas of the window opening, to see if it is out of square.

Now you need to get a sufficient quantity of wooden strips, from which to make the pieces that will be jointed together to make the frame to which the screen mesh will be attached.

Cut two strips of wood to be applied in a cross at the center of the screen, to act as a strengthening support for the frame.
If you have a chisel or a sharp blade, you can remove any irregularities on the surface of the wood to provide a good tight fit of the pieces.

At this point join together the four corners of the frame using wood glue and screws; now that you have a solid base made of wood, you can proceed with placing the screen mesh over the frame: start to cut it along the edge, but leaving a few extra centimeters, so that it can be fastened, for example, with an electric stapler;

If you want to hide the staples used to fasten the mesh, you can be place thin strips of wood over them, painted so as to match the color of the frame. And then you need to make a larger frame to which the screen frame will be hinged.
