Even the thickest pop screens can't stop every plosive. Your best bet is to EQ at the board.
Usually a low pass filter around 80 to 120HZ should stop or drastically reduce the plosive noise.

Thanks for the quick reply.
Unfortunately, our board is a rather basic one -- Allen & Heath ZED10 -- which has only three-band EQ. It does have a high pass filter button on each channel (which I assume is what you meant by "low pass filter" -- high pass = low cut). I had that HPF engaged, and I also had the low-frequency knob turned all the way down for the presentations. For all I know, maybe that did eliminate a lot of them. But enough are getting through to be distracting.
I know that the Shure WL185 mic came with a slightly bigger screen, and we didn't have any problems with that one. Which is why I was hoping that a slightly larger screen on these mics would do the trick. Or is the mic itself (regardless of screen) more susecptible than the WL185?

Wind Tech make a large varity of windscreens. It's usually just a trade off of size vs visual.
The mic is not particularly different that the Shure wrt popping. You could also try adjusting your mic placement.
