Magnetic Screen Door - iGotTech Review

I was recently asked to review the Magnetic Screen Door by iGotTech.

A few months ago we had a HUGE influx of flies in our neighborhood. We were eyes deep in flies every time we opened the door to let the dog go out. After doing her business she wanted back in almost immediately because those flies were bitey little jerks. 

We thought we had a dog poo issue. Cleaned it. We thought we had a dead animal in the yard. No.

We ended up at Home Depot and saw the entire aisle of fly supplies was sold out and there were like 25 people there looking for more. We had a fly epidemic in the neighborhood. It was ridiculous.

We don't usually use pesticides because of our green lifestyle, so our choices were pretty limited anyway..

Aside from the dog being bitten in the yard issue, what we needed was this Magnetic Screen Door by iGotTech. My mother in law has one, but we never thought to put it on our door, since it is a French door. DOH! We needed iGotTech!

We were dumb.. or maybe we had flies on the brain.

We got the package and were ecstatic to install it. 

The man actually had it done in less than a few minutes. He only velcroed it since I didn't want to nail it down until I had tested it.

Here is a great video on installation:

So easy. 

Performance wise-

The dog was a bit hesitant the first few times she tried to go out. She eventually became a pro at it. She can go in and out with no issues, and the BUGS STAY OUT. 

We don't have a fly issue now, but we did occasionally get mosquitoes. (We will probably see more skeeters since we had some insane rains this week.) 

We haven't had a bug in the house since the screen went up.

I loved that the screen gave just a touch of shade.. there is a part of the afternoon when we get direct sun on that side of the door and it is brutal. 

We have thermal curtains, but that isn't even enough.. lol.

We are very happy overall with this screen and will be keeping it on in a more permanent fashion.

Thanks so much for letting us try the Magnetic Screen Door by iGotTech!
