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!
