    Comments about Rodent Screen:

    We have dealt with compost stacks within wire mesh frames for years with some success but last winter an unidentified critter tunneled in to our triple stack system and we didn't like that a bit. Also to dump our compost bucket with kitchen waste, we have to remove the top of that section including unfastening the clips which, being out in weather, become a trial to open. So many of our problems are solved and being in a suburban area, it's nice to have a neat structure. Yay!

    I don't get it.

    Comments about Rodent Screen:

    It's too small Like, way too small. I wish I had read other reviews before I bought it. I filled in the gaps with steel wool so hopefully that will work but I am dubious.

    Pros

    • Keeps rodents out

    Cons

    • Could be a smidge bigger

    Best Uses

    • If you have rodent problems

    Comments about Rodent Screen:

    Ok took off one star because it could be just a bit bigger. Took two of us and zip ties and about twenty minutes to get it to cover the entire bottom. It does cover the bottom and no more rodents.

      Good, but could be better

      By Sue

      About Me Master Gardener

      Verified Buyer

      Pros

      • Easy Assembly
      • Good Heavy-duty Material
      • Great Concept

      Cons

      • Needs To Be A Bit Larger

      Best Uses

        Comments about Rodent Screen:

        Made of good heavy-duty material, but could be an inch or so larger. The screen was difficult to place so that there weren't any openings around it. When installing it, we would get one side in a good position, however the other side would be off. We did manage to get it centered. Hopefully, it is still in place under the compost, as we do have problems with rodents. Great concept, but please make it larger. I would recommend it, as the screen does go with the composter, but if I could make one or find another that fit better I would go with another one.

              Best Uses

              • Good Preventive Measure
              • Screen Out Unwanted Pests

              Comments about Rodent Screen:

              I was glad that the rodent screen was suggested as a companion piece to the composter. It was something that I might not have thought of on my own but recognized the need for such a screen.

              Easy to install with the composter. Just drop it in.
