    We finally bought a new front door and a storm/screen door. Finally, to get rid of that old dented door! :like::stew1: Oh, it's not anything real fancy, just a well insulated door with a small fan shaped window at the top. There never was a storm/screen door on it but now I'll be able to open the door and let the sun and wind in without the flies coming in! :)

    Congrats on the new door,..you have something i always intended getting,..a screen door just like you,.. to let the air in and keep the flies out :),..in particular wasps :sete_011:,..its bad enough when they come in,.. but when there are some dying while buzzing around the bedroom,..that's uncomfortable.

    Happiness is a new storm door..enjoy!!

    I just keep my front door (only door) shut, windows are open on the catch so Insects apart from Ants don't get in. If its a fine day I either garden or go to shops for fresh air.

    Ant infestations was bad this year like waking from a nightmare. They were climbing all over the inner walls and windows, they had wings. I got the man out to spray the nest and they soon started to die but came inside to die..:headscratch::smt089

    Council will point the brickwork I hope, least inspector will lookat the problem.

    Mart: measure the doorway then buy enough wood to fit a square for the door then use double sided sticky pads to attach a curtain. To exit just undo and close behind you.

    Philip: thats aweful about the Wasps
