I recall reading one of the guys here used window screen behind his grille. He said it held up quite well from what I remember.

that might work, but could be a pain to clean the bugs out, it shouldnt be hard, pull the grill out take the screen and cut it to fit, then tack it to the backside of the grill.

For a few bucks you ca pick up gutter guards at a store like Lowes.

Youll have to make the two pieces line up behind the middle piece of grill so you cannot see the seam.

Hey i got some recognition, lol. its pretty simple I just tack it to the inside of the grille so that way you dont see the seams. It survives even the coldest and strongest winds.
