Have you ever been sitting in the bathroom, minding your own business (or perhaps doing your business) only to be interrupted by bugs? If it's not one of those slow, dopey blowflies, it's a mosquito waiting to make its move on your bare skin.

In summer flies, bugs, spiders and insects can be a real pain… sometimes literally.
Exceed insect & fly screens are the perfect solution to get rid of these troublesome insects...

A retractable insect screen for the bathroom is a great idea. You can pull the screen across when you open the window to keep bugs away. And use the loo and shower in peace. That way you can ventilate your bathroom without letting bugs getting into the rest of the house and keep the breeze flowing through the house, even at night, without worrying about moths, mozzies and blowflies stalking you at night.

We can also help you find the perfect mosquito screen for your bedroom windows, so you can enjoy a good night's sleep without having to fight that irritating mosquito buzzing in your ear.

Our waterways and all the fish and species that live in them are precious taonga, so we have set out to understand how they are valued and what should be done to provide the future we want for our water.
