How to make mosquito net for windows easy at home.
A mosquito net offers protection against mosquitos,flies, and other insects, and thus against the diseases they may carry. Examples include malaria, dengue fever, yellow fever, zika virus and various forms of encephalitis, including the West Nile virus.
To be effective the mesh of a mosquito net must be fine enough to exclude such insects without reducing visibility or air flow to unacceptable levels

Step 1: Window Mesh for Insects Components
Window mesh for insects necessary components
Mosquito netting can be made from cotton, polyethylene, polyester, polypropylene, or nylon.
A mesh size of 1.2 millimetres (0.047 in) stops mosquitoes, and smaller, such as 0.6 millimetres (0.024 in), stops other biting insects such as biting midges/no-see-ums

Step 2: Window Net Protection
Window net protection is useful especially in summer when is very hot and you have to have your windows opened for a breeze of fresh air to enter your room. But when opened the window all sorts of insects will make they're way inside among the most dangerous flys and mosquito.
Mosquitoes are small, midge-like flies that constitute the family Culicidae. Females of most species are ectoparasites, whose tube-like mouthparts (called a proboscis) pierce the hosts' skin to consume blood. The word "mosquito" (formed by mosca and diminutive -ito) is Spanish for "little fly". Thousands of species feed on the blood of various kinds of hosts, mainly vertebrates, including mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and even some kinds of fish. Some mosquitoes also attack invertebrates, mainly other arthropods.
Though the loss of blood is seldom of any importance to the victim, the saliva of the mosquito often causes an irritating rash that can be a serious nuisance.
Step 3: Window Net Install Kit
Window net install kit can be found in DIY stores or you can make your own for the cheap the most important is the velcro tape or similar tape that you will attach to the sides of the window frame. As an observation, the side that has the window handles needs to be left without the tape or not continuous from one end to another.First, you should measure the tape and the window net accordingly.
Step 4: Window Net Finished
The most common materials used for the mesh of window screens are aluminum and fiberglass.
Aluminum is generally available in natural aluminum or in an applied black or charcoal color, which make the screening less visible. Fiberglass is available in light gray as well as charcoal colors, the charcoal again offering better viewing and appearance. Fiberglass is less expensive, and has the advantage of not "denting" when hit or pushed, but it is somewhat more opaque than aluminum. For this reason, dark aluminum allows a better view of windows from the exterior, detracting less than fiberglass from the architectural effect of traditional divided-light window styles.
