    Hello,

    Social housing tenant here who had new windows installed over a year ago.

    Been getting dead bugs on the window sill and noticed there is no insect guards fitted in the trickle vents.

    Reply from housing is vents conform to building regs, so nothing they are prepared to do, but i can retro fit something myself if i wish to do so.

    May i ask what insect screen recommendations and best way to fit?

    I'm concerned how i would do upstairs windows, being not having a ladder or used to work on a ladder - hoping these can be fitted internally?

    Many Thanks

    Forgot to add we have a PIV unit, so perhaps the best solution is just to close the vents up?

    You could just poke in some white scourer pads chopped up to fit , will still allow air in.
