Gutter Guards

Looking into buying some gutter-guards.
Does anyone have any experience or insight on what styles are best?
Pros/Cons,etc,etc...

I've watched a bunch of videos on youtube, but thought I'd toss it in here for a cycle or two...

They look easy enough to install, I just don't want to buy a style I'm going to regret or need to replace in 5 years.

Getting tired of climbing the ladder the last few weeks...

Mine work excellent on the house except over the garage where I have a pine tree. Gutter guards do not work with pine needles

Every year I usually take the smallest piece over the downspout off and clean that 2 foot section that has pine needles.

Not to be a pain, but I checked both big-box stores and couldn't find that style.
Your grid looks small enough to keep bees out, do you remember where you purchased it?

Sorry but they came w/the gutters when I got them replaced. No idea where to purchase them. I have no complaints w/them. They def. would keep the bees out.

Wish I had a better answer for you.
