Nothing is more infuriating than wanting to enjoy time outside and having to contend with insects. Whether it be hungry mosquitos, flies that won’t stop buzzing around your head and food, a cloud of gnats, cicadas that find their way into every space, or other pests, sometimes being outside isn’t a relaxing experience. However, when you have screens that keep these insects away, your time can be a lot more enjoyable.

If you eat well, stay hydrated, and are active, it’s easy to think that you are doing everything you possibly can to stay healthy and happy. However, you may be missing one key factor — and you don’t need to join a health club or to drop a little extra money on at the health store. This thing is fresh air.

If bugs don’t bother you or you’ve simply gotten used to them, you may be wondering what the big deal is about installing window screens for porches or garage door screens. Screens have actually played a major part in the eradication of many diseases and illnesses. Because our modern society is surrounded by screens and many of us spend much of our time inside, it’s easy to forget the benefits of these simple fixtures installed in all of our homes.
Insects, Rodents & the Spread of Disease
If you were paying attention in history class, you may remember reading about small towns in the early days of the U.S. being completely wiped out by sickness — much like the Black Plague of medieval Europe did all those years before. Though it wasn’t always due to disease-spreading pests, in some cases, they were the source. As a modern society, there are many reasons why we don’t have to worry about certain diseases, and one of those reasons is our screens. Mosquitoes, flies, and other insects, as well as rodents are responsible for the spread of disease.
Mosquitoes transfer diseases such as West Nile, Zika virus, Chikungunya virus, dengue, and malaria to us when they bite us.
Flies land on all sorts of unsanitary surfaces and can contaminate our foods. To add to the discomfort, some of them bite us — and that really hurts!
Poisonous spiders can bite us easily and inflict illness — and even death.
Squirrels, mice, raccoons, and other rodents carry harmful diseases that can make us and our pets sick.
Because screens easily keep these critters out, the number of cases of certain diseases has decreased or have completely disappeared. Screens haven’t just added to our quality of life, but they have allowed us to remain healthy. Additionally, they have enhanced our quality of life allowing us uninterrupted hours of pest-free fresh, outdoor air.
If you are ready to enhance your life and protect your family, it’s time to invest in retractable screens. Buy yours from Metro Screenworks today! [Can we anchorlink to the top of the page]
