Default Plumbing Stack Critter Covers?

Local sheet metal co's here seem to keep them in stock from galvanized to copper in several diameters. Very simple...Round pieces of metal that slip on the stack like a sock & they have mesh screen on top. Would you go with Stainless or aluminum?

Doesn't have to be a metal, I'm open to alternatives as long as it does the job & doesn't interfere with the stack doing it's job AND MUST keep critters out. What about something like these?

We don't have as persistent a bugger down here but I would always opt for stainless when possible.

I made one for mine out of hardware cloth and secured it with a hose clamp.

Why not get an ABS cap, drill a generous number of 1/4" holes and attach it to the vent with ABS cement? Might cost you $1.50 ...
