I use wax paper. Taximan has a good idea though!

You guys use that pipe insulation or polyfill right out of the bag? Does it have an odor? This seems more efficient than wire pan covers. Will the insulation freeze solid if it gets wet and is exposed to freeze/thaw cycles?

I use black wire screen on pipe dream, flat and trail sets in the grass. For dirt holes Iíve used a lot of different things, under allís, fiberglass, polyfill even corn husks and grape leaves. They all work well when itís dry, they all fail when frozen in a pool of water lol.

I cut my insulation up right out of the bag and store in ziplock bag till i need it, but have no issues with scent on brand new stuff. Also I dont get tons of moisture but i have never had my insulation freeze solid or even enough to not let trap fire. Great stuff IMO.

Any issues with the pipe insulation freezing in really wet/freezing weather? I've used the poly for several years and had it freeze solid....any problems with the pipe insulation doing that? Thanks!

Here's what works for me - fold flaps(do not crease) over and slide under pan, all edges are protected. Works fox to yotes.

Fiberglass screen against sheet of paper for visibility.

Center square is pan size +1" each side. Flaps are long enough to fold over stay folded under pan, tapered to make corners easier. 8 of 10 times screen is reusable but I wash them before reusing them on canines(just in case). I have plexiglass glass templates(for large pans #3 and over, #2 and under) that I lay atop several full size squares(pan plus flaps) and then cut them shape w/SHARP carpet knife. Easy Peasy. I get all the screen I can use all but free from a window repair shop.


I've learned enough thru the years to now know that I don't know enough. KNOWLEDGE IS FREEDOM.
