Screen room for brassicas
I grow many of my vegetables in raised beds, and I'm planning to build hinged screened covers for my brassicas and greens this season. My only significant pests for these crops are worms and slugs. I've successfully used bt and various slug baits in the past, but frankly application is an unenjoyable chore. I plan to use the copious amounts of leftover window screen I can't seem to stop accumulating, stapled on to simple wood frames that can be hinged open for access. I've got plenty of scrap wood around, so it should be a cheap project. I'm going to buy some rubber bulb gasketing to make a fairly tight seal between bed and cover. Can anyone see any drawbacks to doing this? None of the crops under cover will require pollinators, which is the only potential issue that I can think of.
