How To Repair Wire Screen or Hardware Cloth
Sometimes, your hardware cloth or wire screening gets a hole in it. It's actually pretty easy to fix.
Cut a patch out of the same material a little bigger than the area that needs to be fixed. Cut right next to the wire so that you have spikes sticking out...
Bend all four side of sticky pieces up using a needle nose pair of pliers. Take particular care at the corners and make sure they are pinched together like the above. By the way, this is really hard to do without your glasses.
Attach the cut piece from the inside of the screen, pressing all the pokey edges around to clasp the screen with the pokey edges of the patch over to stick it to the screen.
