Patio screens may not sound like much of an investment in your home; however, surrendering valuable real estate to mosquitos is not a smart idea either. I almost envision dollar bills swirling down the drain as I am chased inside by an insect less than ¼” long. The thought of losing money AND missing out on the outdoor fun is painful.
Who has not been chased inside by a swarm of mosquitos at dusk or dawn and had their plans for outdoor fun ruined?
Please note, in this Blog post when we say patio screens, we are referring to roll down patio screens. This allows you freedom to open and move about as you please .
Yes, treating the lawn does help, but that does not get all of them. And, what if you have not had the time to treat the lawn, or want a solution that is more environmentally friendly?
In this Blog, we will focus on using screens to protect your outdoor kitchen, dining and conversational areas from mosquitoes. However, our products also work with No-See-Ums (also known as midges). We discussed other methods of controlling mosquitoes in an earlier Blog- Outdoor Entertaining without the Pests
