The scourge of warm weather. I see them mostly in the south. Tiny little bat like bugs that will drive a person crazy.

It's not hard to do. The main trick is do NOT try to make the screening too tight.
I even know a company that sells all the stuff online.

No-See-Um Screen Rolls - Quality Screen Co - Quality Screen Co, LLC (LP)

Serrated Spline 100 feet Black for Screen Repairs - Quality Screen Co, LLC (LP)

Spline Roller Tool Buy - Quality Screen Co - Quality Screen Co, LLC (LP)

How To Guide
This technique is right on as I have done many screens in my day.....now if you have an idea for my popup bunk end screens and window screens...I'm a listening

Don't know anything about pop up screens. But I assume that they are sewn into the fabric somehow? If you are changing them, I would suggest using 18x14 patio and pool screen. It is also .013 diameter and is stronger than standard screen.

I was not even aware screen was sold as No-see-um. Interesting.

They are as small as a grain of pepper and will make your life miserable with bites from things you just can't see !!
Sitting on my patio at early dusk tonight and when I came in the house my ankles started itching like crazy, had to run for the hydrocortisone cream to stop the itch !! Not usually a problem till this season since I don't live near the water.
