Swating, smacking and spraying gets old doesn’t it? While there are many remedies for repelling those seasonal blood-sucking nuisances, nothing works better than the barrier method. While specialized outdoor candles keep a small section of your bright, zen space clear, those seated far from the flickering repellant are inevitably going to get bit. Build your own fortress against disease-carrying pests this summer with a screened in porch. With many added benefits, installing a screened in porch and keeping your loved ones safe from the threat of malaria, Zika virus, and West Nile Virus should be your top priority.
The Threat Of Carrier Insects
According to the World Health Organization, 50% of the world’s population is presently at risk for mosquito-borne diseases. The Zika virus, first discovered in 2015, has spread to 24 different countries and territories within the past year. The virus can cause birth defects in children whose mothers are infected with the virus during pregnancy. Causing fever, rash, joint pain, and redness in the whites of the eyes. If left untreated, the Zika virus can cause temporary partial paralysis starting in the legs. Currently, there is not medical treatment for it, but over-the-counter pain medications can be taken for relief. The summer months are a time for relaxation. Don’t let the threats of insect-borne illness keep you cooped up indoors. It’s your responsibility to provide a fun, safe living space for your children. A Screened in porch is your best option.
Spend Quality Time With Family and Friends
A brand new outdoor space protected from the dangerous outdoor elements is the perfect space for playing board games, enjoying dinner, and having fun with the kids!
