Introduction: Vehicle Bug Screen

Tired of Mosquitos, flies and other flying insects bothering you while sitting in your vehicle with the windows down?

Then make a vehicle screen to cover your windows. Great for camping or sitting in your truck at the river or lake at night.

Step 1: Vehicle Bug Screen

You will need the following tools and materials.

1. Box cutter
2. Metal rulers
3. Approximately 4 yards of Heavy Duty pet screen.
4. Heavy thread
5. Sewing needle
6. Magnets
7. Paper clips

Step 2: Vehicle Bug Screen

Measure 1 inch from your door handle to the top of your door post. Then measure from your mirror to the side door post. You will then add 2 inches to all four sides because you are going to fold 2 inches on all sides and sew in the magnets.

**it's better to make the screen a little bit large you can always trim some off if it's too large. You can't add to the screen if you make it too small.

If you have a rain guard make sure your measurement is included or your screen may be too small.

Step 3: Vehicle Bug Screen

Cut out the screen for one window.

Step 4: Vehicle Bug Screen

Fold over 2 inches on all sides. I used paper clips to hold the screen in place.

Step 5: Vehicle Bug Screen

Sew in the magnets. You can use a sewing machine or hand stitch it. I hand stitched mine since I didn't have a sewing machine.

I then stitched all the way around the screen.
