Good Morning! Has anyone heard of bugs eating holes in fiberglass screens? We keep waking up with new holes in our screens about 2 inches from the sill. The holes range in size from 1/4 inch to an inch or so. Any input would be appreciated!

Rats, not bugs. Spoon out the Dcon.

Use a trap. If you use poison, it may die somewhere unreachable inside and you'll have to deal with odor of decaying body.
If you have any pets, you may not wish to use poison.

If you've got mice and not rats, Home Depot has "catch and release" traps.

Roaches can also chew threw fiberglass screens as well if given enough time, especially the large palmetto bugs.

Rats. We had same issue. We used bait outside house on window sills they were entering. Never saw them again. A great triumph of technology.
