Keeping your house critter proof is very important in order to keep it clean and safe. For each opening in your house you need a quality closure such as windows and doors, but don't overlook the chimney. The chimney is one more necessary opening to the outside, but the Hy-C Company offers a sturdy steel bird and squirrel screen that will keep out those creatures who would like to make your chimney their home. This black galvanized steel screen is designed to fit either the 8 x 8 or 9 x 9 chimney flue tiles. Besides its effectiveness this screen is also very practical because it is easy to install and will not detract from the beauty of your chimney.
Features
  • Fits 8 in. x 8 in. or 9 in. x 9 in. outside flue tile dimensions
  • Heavy 16 gauge 5/8 in. galvanized steel mesh
  • Keeps small pests like birds and squirrels out of the chimney
  • Entire unit is made of galvanized steel
  • Painted black to resist rusting

Bird and Squirrel Screen?
July 12, 2014
This item, sold as a bird and squirrel screen, is actually an HYC Spark Arrestor Screen. Conspicuously printed on the shipping boxes, but never mentioned on the website, is a dire warning about placement on a chimney used to vent gas-fired appliances. The warning refers to additional information inside which reads: "If you are using gas for house heating, EXTREME CAUTION (emphasis theirs, not mine) should be taken during the firing season when temperatures fall below zero fahrenheit. Visually check the screened cover daily for possible frost, snow or freezing rain build-up... CARBON MONOXIDE BUILD-UP IN THE HOUSE, DUE TO A BLOCKED CHIMNEY, CAN CAUSE DROWSINESS, HEADACHE AND/OR NAUSEA in its early stages, warning of its presence, BUT COULD PROVE FATAL IF PROPER CHIMNEY VENTING IS NOT ESTABLISHED AND MAINTAINED during periods of below zero temperatures." I find it curious that this warning is not given in the web listing. Other than that, the product looks exactly as advertised and fit my flues perfectly. As we live in the northeast and do vent gas-fired appliances, time will tell if these so-called bird and squirrel guards are going to cause more problems than they solve.
