    Default 1/8" Hardware Cloth

    Does anyone know of a supply company that sells 1/8" hardware cloth by the foot, not the roll. Or where do you get yours? The smallest I can find at Home Depot is 1/4"

    I get mine at a small farm store in Cartersville Georgia. If you can't find it locally, e-mail me at cchoganjr@scrtc.com perhaps I can help you.

    One my local Ace hardware's had it by the foot, priced competitively. I did have to some some extensive calling around till I found them. How much do you need?

    Honey Run Apiaries in Ohio sells it by the foot. Just ordered and received 5 feet from them.

    Check Lowes'. I saw some there. They are not the square 1/8 type, more like a diamond 1/8.

    This needs a sticky. Big box stores only sell stuff they can move in volume. Call your local hardware stores, if you have any left. Then keep going to them even when you can get somethng for a few cents cheaper at Home Depot and Lowes, because if you don't they won't be there the next time you need something that isn't mass-market from China.

    While some Ace stores sell #8 hardware cloth is small quantities, not all do. The one here does not. If you want it by the foot, Brushy Mountain offers it:

    And for a good price by the roll, this is a good choice:

    Why can't screen door mesh be used in place of hardware cloth? Is it that it's not as durable? Propolis? I've been wondering this since the last time I saw a thread like this and tried to track down my own hardware cloth.

    I think the bees get their legs caught in it.

    Door screen isn't always made of metal, some are various kinds of plastic or fiberglass. Bees will sometimes destroy plastic or fiberglass. Hardware cloth is usually a bit less flexible and stiffer than the metal door screen is made of - hence more durable.

    My two local Ace Hardware stores give a very nice discount if you buy an entire 50' roll -- you might have to ask the store manager to get the discount.
