How it works

This polyester mesh curtain attaches to the door frame with velcro — no tools needed. The velcro is paired with magnets along the seams which snap into place when the curtains fall into position. The magnets ensure there is no gaping so flies and mosquitoes can’t sneak in.

Amazon shoppers love how well this mosquito curtain works — it’s racked up more than 35,000 five-star reviews for a variety of reasons.

Screen door substitute

For those who rent an apartment or summer home, installing a screen door isn’t an option. For them, this is a breezy solution for keeping the bugs out.

“This has been a game changer for our summer morning routine,” wrote a satisfied customer. “Now we can open the kitchen door on cool mornings and allow air in without letting flies in. We rent and couldn't install a regular screen door but this is better anyway.”

One happy home renter wrote: “I rent a house in Florida, and keep the doors and windows open during the fall, winter and spring to save money. The front door has a screen but not the back so there were constantly moths, mosquitoes, flies and whatnot getting in. Now, nothing!”

Great for pets

If you have dogs or cats that like to blur the line between indoor and outdoor during the summer, this little gadget gives them the freedom to enjoy the weather without letting in pests or doing damage.

“Why didn’t I buy this sooner?” wrote one delighted pet owner. “I live out on property in a house built in the 1800s. Something is always ready to be fixed so my single honeydo list is looooooong. I have thought about just building a screen door but meh. I have no central air (ha) and I have very active pets that go in and out. I put this up in less than 5 mins. It took a few treats to teach the pup. Cat hasn’t figured it out yet, but I really don’t mind since it stalled him from bringing in his latest fury victim. Even if this lasts one season it’s worth it not to walk into fly tape! Sold. Sold. So sold. Ordering a second one right MEOW!”

“I have 3 mini dachshunds who use it all day and night to access my apartment's balcony,” shared a happy shopper. “ It was super easy to install and the magnets snap it closed every time to keep the bugs out. Pleasantly surprised by the high quality considering the low price. Highly recommend!”

“Great new doggy door!” a satisfied customer wrote. “My pups ripped through our traditional screen door ‘knocking’ to come in. I chucked the old door and stuck this baby on in its place. Now the dogs can just push through without ripping it to shreds.”

“I am so happy! No bugs inside!” a satisfied pet parent shared. “My cat and dog love sitting on the balcony but it’s spring here in Colorado and that means BUGS. I love this screen, the magnets are super strong so it stays shut when it’s supposed and the fat cat can still get through when he wants in or out! Definitely love this thing!

Great for grandkids

Anyone with grandkids knows just how much their coming-and-going lets in the flies.

“I should have bought one of these screens a long time ago,” a happy grandparent wrote. “Easy installation and with grandkids going back and forth from the pool to inside the house, this screen has saved my sliding door from damage.”

“This is the best product I’ve purchased in a long time,” wrote a satisfied customer. “I live on a farm and anyone who lives on a farm knows how bad flies and bugs are. My grandkids and my dog go in and out all day. Since putting up the screen, I have only had one fly get in. Four days before this purchase I had 50 flies come in in a day."
