I am looking to make some feeders and would like to use a ladder system down into the tub. Does anyone have a good source for a tubular mesh I can purchase? I would like to punch a couple of holes in a tub lid and fix the mesh to the lid.

Most people use #8 hardware cloth and mold it into a tube shape and just use a thin wire to keep it together.

I use #8 hardware cloth, but just use a pair of pliers to pull off the last cross-wire on one side and insert them through the mesh on the other side and fold them over to secure the tube. Roll the mesh around an appropriate size dowel, broomstick, whatever you have.
