Even if you find a Ace Hardware alot of them are individually owned and they dont order the same items! Meaning some places have it and others dont! Its been on other threads about mesh wire and its getting to be hard to find cause of the cost of the mesh wire. Your almost forced to buy a 100 foot roll in order to get the piece of wire that you actually need! I know a guy that sells #8 mesh wire for $2.50 a foot and then you have to pay for shipping charges!.
Believe it or not, Wal-Mart is one of the only stores that I found that carries the metal screening (and Cheap). It works really well for most thing, alittle soft for bottom boards, but as far as blocking hive openings and such, it works great.
called an Ace and they did not have 6 squares per linear inch wire mesh.
I can buy the #8 in small pieces - its just the #6 i cannot find.
I had found the same website but they do not carry it. Found it in stainless but $$$$$$$$$$.
