Great idea. I've got some window screen saved that I had always planned on using to make netting around a 72nd scale heli-deck.

Yep; window screen, (square) net curtains stiffened with paint, all have their places and uses.

The bridal tulle has an Hexagonal weave, as you can see from the photos, so it's good for chicken netting in some applications.

Mosquito netting, if you can get it, is also a good substitute for various meshes & netting. ;)

Wedding Tulle (Bridal veil material) apparently also works well.

Yea, but if you find any around the house check with the Mrs or daughter/s first. Could get dodgy if you don't  ;)

So is the mesh found in coffee drip-brew machine strainers, perfect for radiator fronts etc in 1/72

Yes.  Cutting holes in the fly screens in order to make a model is frowned upon.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.
