How to keep lizards from creeping around window screens into the house

by Gramyoz
When I bought my home all the window screens were stored in the garage. They will not longer fit snuggle into the windows and crawly things invade my house if windows are left open. I've tried clips, but they still find their way in. Any suggestions will be so appreciated. It's time to open the windows here in Texas.

    Rescreen the screens. You can buy screen fabric at hardware stores. There are many videos on YouTube that show how to do it.

      @Donna the screens are fine, the frame is the problem. It will not stay snug against the track.

    Are these full screens with a wood frame that fit into the window frame or are they metal that fit into a track?

      @William they are metal frames and somewhat bowed. They will not stay flat against the track,

    Can you take a photo of a screen and window and post them?

    Seal with a removable flexible silicone or calk once in place or put a bead or insulating strip on before installing.

    I had this problem. Did a cheap hack job until I got new screens. My screens and Windows were white so I put white tape over the frames and onto the window on the inside. No more creatures. Like I said it was a hack and I had to clean adhesive off when I removed the screens but it worked.

      @Dawg1953.ds Thanks so much, I was just about ready to hot glue the frames into the windows. I'll try the tape instead.
