One way screen for window

A screen for the window that lets bugs out, not in.

I have a screen on my window but flies/mosquitoes get in from the front door. So I propose a one way screen that has mini fillaments that let bugs out when they hit it, but keeps ones already outside out.

       I thought this was going to be a screen that lets you see through one direction, but not the other. That would be terribly useful, too.

       [omegatron] they used to do that by painting one side black and the other side white. I assume they used a flat foam brush of some sort. Don't know how well it worked.   

       I like the filament screen, kinda like little fish traps. Very good idea.

       Could you explain a little more about how the filaments work?

       Good idea. They can do this with artifical membranes, why not with flyscreens eh?
