How To Protect Your Home From Mosquitoes

Summertime means it’s time for backyard parties, swimming, camping, and all the joys that the warm weather brings. However, with summer also comes mosquitoes. Aside from the fact that they are pesky and annoying, they’re the responsible for transporting diseases such as the West Nile virus and malaria. That’s why it’s important to know how to control pests like mosquitoes from entering your home. Stay ahead of the disease-carriers with these tips.

Door and window screens keep mosquitoes out of the house

Mosquitoes naturally fly in through your windows and doors. Keeping your windows and doors locked at all times is not a practical solution. The best way to keep mosquitoes out of your house is with quality window screens. Window screens must fit properly to ensure that mosquitoes cannot sneak through small openings. If your doors are without screens, you can go with a traditional screen door or a retractable screen door that slides open when you want to have a screen in place.

If you have screens that require repairs, you should call a professional screen-replacement company like Doctor Screen. A local distributor will come to your home to provide mobile screen repair.
