Glue for securing screens?

Recommended Posts

I have been using hot glue to secure my screens over ventilation holes, but when I wash the containers, the glue breaks away and my screens fall off. I then have to re-glue them before I can put roaches back in. I'm looking for a more permanent glue to use. I'm using a very fine metal mesh for my vent covers on those plastic gasket tubs. Does anyone have something better than hot glue that isn't toxic to the roaches?

I use a soldering iron to fasten metal mesh to my plastic enclosures. That works well and I can wash them without having them fall off. 

In this topic I've places some pictures:

I do the same, its a lot more time consuming, but the results are worth it.
