high efficiency furnace venting
 
I have a high efficiency furnace. At the end of the PVC pipe where it is vented outside, should there be some sort of insect or small rodent barrier, like chicken wire or screening? FYI, When it is freezing out, there is a build up of ice at the end. Thanks. -Steve-

Mine does not have anything over it.

If you put a screen in or over it. It will freeze shut and leave you without heat.
