Some of the best things you can do in your backyard are spending time by the pool, grilling out, playing sports, or just reading a book. However, many of these activities are ruined when pesky mosquitoes are gnawing on your skin. There are some things though that you as a homeowner can do to make any activity done outside more enjoyable. If you have ever considered purchasing a patio screen, there is no better time than now.
Any backyard can be more pleasant with a patio screen. The screen will make it difficult for bugs and mosquitoes to get into your confined patio. All of the comforts of being inside and outside at the same time can be enjoyed. You will also be able to see through the patio screen. The comfort of being inside will be felt when you can see the bugs, but they are not bothering you.
Pool screens will also protect your backyard from pests. It can be bothersome to have to clean the pool before getting in if there are bugs in it. And once the pool is cleaned, you may not even feel like swimming. With a pool screen, the bugs will stay out so your pool will be ready for you whenever you feel like taking a swim.
Another way you can protect yourself from mosquitoes is to use citronella candles on your patio and around the pool area. There are many varieties on the market of these candles. You just light the candle and the pesky critters stay away. If you are not a fan of candles, you can purchase other citronella products, such as armbands or sprays. They also make citronella torches that are perfect for any backyard.
No matter if mosquitoes or other bugs bother you in your backyard or patio, it is still beneficial to have either a pool screen or a patio screen. Many bugs carry diseases that can be very harmful to your family. It is best to not even take the chance as there is not a way of knowing which bugs or insects do carry diseases.
Another aspect that many may not think about with pool or patios is ticks. Ticks are very harmful to both people and pets. If you live near a woodsy area, chances are these creatures could invade your space. Ticks carry Lyme disease which can give an individual a bullseye-like rash. Fever or flu-like symptoms can also appear. Other symptoms in humans include fatigue, stiff necks, body aches, and headaches. Pets can be bitten by an infected tick and not even show signs. By having either one of these areas enclosed, you protect yourself, your family, and your fur babies from these blood-sucking creatures.
