Garage Door Screens

Hey ya'll. I am a man of the outdoors and I enjoy working in my garage a lot. However with the warm temps we've been having recently I have found it to be very buggy. I was just wondering if anybody had any suggestions. I actually was doing a search for something to help out and came across these fresh air screens,
But i don't know anyone who has used them or heard anything about them, thought i would ask if anyone here knew anything about them!? Anywho if anyone has suggestions I would love to hear about them

I have seen ads in trade magazines for garage door sized rolling screens, but can't recall manufacturers. Do a search for screens on the net, should find something.

Swift movement of air will also keep bugs at bay. In the warmer months I use a squirrel cage fan in my shop to move air for comfort, keep the chickens out and eliminate nuisance bugs. That is why you see ceiling fans on high in outdoor eating areas. Bugs can't fly due to the vortex of air created against their wings.

garage screens

I am not sure if they are a regional thing or not but here in Texas, Lowes can get full garage door screens. You can order them through the millwork department and they are pretty reasonable too. Around a couple hundred bucks but they are very durableand you can even get custom ones with your favorite college team logo on them. You may find something better pricewise online but if there is a lowes in your area I would try them out first.

I've been thinking about just building a frame 2ft tall and the width of the door to put under the door so that when I have the window open on the opposite end I can get some ventilation. I've seen the ads for the roll up screen, but in my area with the winds we get sometimes I have my doubts about how long it might last, let alone having a dog that isn't the smartest animal in the world.
