Can't find 3/8' hardware cloth

I cannot find this cloth anywhere. I've tried Home Depot, Menards, Ace, and Farm and Fleet. None of them have it. I'm in the Northern Illinois area. Only about 15 minutes away from the Wisconsin border. If anyone knows where I can get the cloth in this area, PLEASE let me know.

Hope this helped.

RE: Can't find 3/8' hardware cloth

Just about any type, size and mesh screen is available at online hardware supplier McMaster-Carr,;
I use 5/16" with a .304" opening, part no. 9217T41, 36" wide @ $1.23 sq.ft. The next size up is 7/16", part no. 9245T32;

I've heard that Bee Keepers sometimes use 3/8" galv. hardware cloth, also, Pest Control to keep out varmits; You might ask them.

Good luck, Doug
