We live out in the country and on nice days we like to keep our door open to let in fresh air. The only drawback is the flies that come inside. So we thought we would solve this problem with Magic Mesh. Although it did help to keep some of the flies out, we still had them come in. The mesh screen is flimsier than I thought it would be and while the magnetic strips worked good to keep the screen closed, the bottom of the screen was loose and that's how the flies would get inside. When the wind is blowing, the thing is almost useless as the wind would blow the magnetic strips apart. After using it for the season, it was dilapidated, so we threw it away. It had some rips and one of the magnetic strips fell off. I don't think that we were extremely rough with it. I had considered buying another one for this year, but haven't yet. Before I do, I wanted to know about other people's experience with this product and if anyone has any solutions to any of the problems I had with Magic Mesh. I really want to like this product because I think overall, it's a good concept.
