I have seen kits to make your own mosquito screens, either roller type, or 'fixed' frame type--which are usually secured with Velcro, and both can be adjusted to fit the size of window frame.
When we lived in Roda which is not far from Mar Menor Golf, we used to nip up the motorway to Dos Mares Shopping centre at San Pedro Del Pinitar, there is about 60 shops within the centre, and a very good bricco which sold these kits, the shopping centre alone is worth a look- very good.

Magnetic ones only work if you have ferrous window frames as we had in Florida.

We are shortly getting a quote from one of the carpinteros de aluminio in the village to have some made to fit a couple of doors and some windows. When we get some prices, I'll let you know. In the meantime keep an eye open in Brico, they do them including some that roll up and down

Thanks Fergie we'll have a run up there, I recall seeing a large brico on the road to San Pedro. Baldilocks, that would be great if you don't mind as then we'll know if we are in the right ball park!

It might well be cheaper and a lot easier to get them made and fitted by a carpintero de aluminio. There´s one on the poligono near us that advertises "mosqueteros" which I assume is a fly screen. They made some window blinds for us at a ridiculously cheap price a few years ago.

Actually "mosqueteros" are musketeers, "mosquiteras" are fly screens!
