Who are we?
We are parents with young children. Like all good parents, we want to provide the best for them, so they will grow up healthy; we want to do everything we can to protect them from harm.
How it got started?
In 2015, Singapore experienced a Dengue epidemic. Our areas were among the Dengue Hotspots, so naturally we wanted to ensure there are no Aedes mosquitos in our house.
But we faced a dilemma: If we closed our windows, we felt suffocated as a result of poor air ventilation. If we opened them, mosquitoes entered the house, especially during dusk.
We tried countless Preventive measures…
We used all kinds of mosquito repellents, insecticides and Mopiko creams. We even contemplated installing air-conditioning to the entire house!
We came across a brand of Insect Screen Window Mesh that could solve our problems by magically sealing the windows. However, it requires professional installation, with a hefty price tag to match!
We wondered: “There must be a better solution …”
We found a Cheaper, Better Solution
After much searching, we discovered a cheaper and better DIY Magnetic Insect Screen. We could assemble and install the Magnetic Insect Screen easily on our own, starting with only one window pane, and soon extending the benefits to other windows that we wanted to leave open. Over time, we have had our house magically sealed from mosquitoes (and other creepy crawlies, as well as ashes from burnt offerings!).
We founded InsectOut DIY Magnetic Insect Screen | Window Mesh.
Sharing Benefits of Our DIY Magnetic Insect Screen
We benefited from our DIY Magnetic Insect Screen. This is indeed a piece of mesh that gives us peace of mind. It keeps Mozzies out, lets fresh air in.
We feel this is a necessity that every home ought to have (we are confident that it can last at least 5, even 10 years with proper care). It certainly makes a great investment.
Best of all, you can try out 1 or 2 windows first (from $22 per window screen). Once you are convinced of its effectiveness, you can extend the Magnetic Insect Screen to other windows. Later, you may further benefit the community by sharing it with family and friends.
And we learnt something else. Many cat owners also need a low cost (cheap) solution to keep their cats safe at home. Our magnetic window mesh is able to do this and we now have many customers who use our insect screen as a pet screen / pet window mesh.
