There is nothing more pleasant than the smell of fresh air in the spring. After three or four months of battleing the elements of the winter, nothing brightens your day like walking outside in a t-shirt and shorts. So naturally you open the windows in your house and let that spring air filter through your house. Yet, of course, when there is a positive, a negative must find its way into the equation. Having screens in your windows helps you avoid a lot of negative hassles that would arise if you did not have screens installed. Some of you may have screens installed, yet they may be in rough shape and need replacing.
Why Do Screens Make Life Easier?
- They keep out flies, bees, gnats, etc… during the day time.
- They keep out mosquitoes, bats, moths, etc… during the night time.
- Allows young families to open windows knowing that children are safe from falling out of windows.
- Shows visitors and guests that you are invested in the well being of your health and others.
Why Should I Buy/Replace Screens?
First and formost, screens reduce the amount of insects and pests that can enter a home when the windows are open. Let’s look at some of the dangers that these pests can bring into a household. The first and most annoying critter has to be the mosquito. Mosquitoes are a trending topic these days with the introduction of West-Nile Virus into the USA. With many reports in the northeast in recent years, many are taking further precautions to keep mosquitoes away. One way to reduce the number of mosquitoes entering your home at night are by installing new screens or repairing damaged ones. Let’s look at the next and maybe most important animal to keep out of your house. Bats come back out during the spring and are looking for those newly hatched mosquitoes to eat. While bats aren’t the worse animal in the world to have around your property, they help control mosquito populations, they are sure not the animal you want in your house. Bats carry the feared rabies disease which has been proven a fatal over and over again. Even if the saliva of an infected bat reaches your blood system, you have the chance of being infected. Screens are the best way to keep bats out!
