Window screens were first introduced in the United States in the 1800s. They gained popularity in North America and Australia in the 1950s and variations are now frequently used on structures such as porches and conservatories (or sunrooms).
Window screens are used in domestic applications in areas where seasonal insects (such as flies, midges, mosquitoes and wasps) can be a nuisance. Window screens can also help keep pets inside while preventing unwanted intrusions from birds and small animals. In addition, there are extremely fine screen options that can help cut the amount of pollen entering through open windows.
Like wired glass, window screens can be less visually attractive than plain windows, although it is possible to improve the overall look of the screens by selecting screening materials that are less visible.
Window screens partially obstruct interior views, although this can again be controlled through the selection process. For instance, some window screens can be quickly removed or rolled up and retracted to reduce their visibility.
