Any one building a wood stove is welcome to this door.'the hardest part to fabricate. Black cast iron 19" x 12" I used the glass so you're on your own there . Standard size and available $$ Heavy, so local would be good. I usually find gold-plate /glass in scrap but this was too good to leave and I needed the glass anyway.

The only thing I found that worked well was Avon Skin So Soft. I even wiped it on the screens and they never got more than a few inches from it before turning away.

Maybe they're immune there due to all the orange groves.

It sure works here - almost as good as bats.

As of last month, on the east side of Tampa bay, Citronella did NOTHING!!!!

It just made them mad and they bit more and more. I had it so strong it was hard to breath.
