Screens Are Not Enough To Keep Out Mosquitoes!

Spring and Summer are glorious seasons to take advantage of the porch, the garden and the backyard. The living is easy, the days are longer, and enjoying the company of friends over a barbecue is truly relaxing. But what happens when mosquitoes are everywhere, too?

Most homes have open porches, but some do screen their porches to prevent mosquitoes from ruining a perfect outdoor dinner. But for those that do not have screens, a good and effective natural mosquito control system is needed!

I moved into my new old house last year; new because I had never lived in it before and old because the original construction dated back about six decades. I love the character and charm of my older home, but what I didn’t like was the way bugs could get into my house all spring and summer long because the screening material on the windows had sadly deteriorated.

If you’re going to screen your porch to control mosquitoes, here is what you need to do: After measuring all of the windows in my home that required renovation, I went to a discount site and ordered the precise supplies that I would need. I also read through the information and instructions that were listed to ensure that I’d be able to install my new replacement window screens properly, since improper installation could still leave cracks and openings that would allow a variety of outside debris and various creepy-crawlies to get in.

Now that I’ve successfully installed window screens that I needed, I’ll be able to enjoy a whole spring and summer without the worry of unwelcome flies, moths, and mosquitoes sneaking inside for a visit. In fact, the garden is mine again!

Completing the project myself was a lot easier than I thought it would be, and I saved big on my replacement window screens in the process. I couldn’t ask for anything more — except maybe a couple of volunteers to help me wash my new windows!

Mosquitoes are so much more than just pests

Mosquitoes are so much more than just pests that bite you and leave you itching. They can actually pose more serious threats to the health that one should be really concerned about. These pests thrive on water, necessary for them to be able to complete the cycle of their life. For this reason, it is critical that standing water is drained as soon as possible from the surroundings of one’s property. When the weather is warm, it only takes about 3 up to 7 days in order for the mosquito to go from an egg to an adult. This means that they could breed in any water that is stagnating in just a matter of a week. They lay eggs in the water or close to it. As a matter of fact, mosquitoes never develop in the grass of in shrubs, although you will notice them flying around these particular areas at daytime. This is why mosquito control is absolutely necessary.
