UV would not be my first concern. Plastic is chewable... I am thinking mice, rats, and skunks.

Mice seem to be able to chew through just about anything.  I'm sure they could get through #8 hardware cloth aswell.

My dad had some in #8 hardware cloth cages for months and they never did.  I've never seen them chew through hardware cloth.  I've also never seen them chew through steel wool.

This reminds me, back home in Europe, as a kid right after the war.  We had a secret pantry, (hiding what little food there was, from Communists!) One day my father got to cursing that one could almost see blue cloud around his head....
A mouse chewed through about 3 feet of mortar and bricks and got right in the midle of a big block of cheese.
Poor bugger must to have worn its' teeth right down to the gums! evil

Trot, you know that many of us cannot even begin to understand what life must have been like when food was so hard to get and scarce.  I lived through hard times as a child, and I have heard many forum members speak of this in their lives too.

The stories that are told of the hard times that people have lived through make me feel ever so grateful for my cozy little life now.  I am grateful for these stories, it really puts a lot of things into some spectacular perspective.

That mouse was amazing.  Funny, that is a memory that made such an impact, you have never forgotten it.  Great day.  Cindi

I bought a roll of 1/8 inch hardware cloth from ace hardware for about $95. Luckily they had a 36 inch by 100 foot roll that had barely been uses. I got it for a bargin. I could have ordered a 24 inch X 100 foot roll for 130.00. Thought I got a really good deal on the partially used roll.

Here locally we have a place called Marine hardware.  In there you can find what you cant find in anyother place.  I bought the last 1/8 screen Ace had and they promptly quick stocking it.  I then wne to marine harware and they have loads and are will to restock.
