Say No to Mosquitos this Summer

This summer, say no to mosquitos with these easy tips from Luxury Screens.

Nothing can spoil your summer enjoyment like being bothered by mosquitos. Not only can these pests dole out itchy, annoying bites that can cause scarring due to scratching, but they carry many serious vector borne diseases like dengue, West Nile and the chikungunya virus. This summer, say no to mosquitos with these easy tips from Luxury Screens.

• Make sure there is not standing water around your home, gazebo or outdoor areas, where mosquitoes will lay eggs.

• Try adding a natural mosquito repellent drink to your diet: 8 ounces of water, 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and 1 tablespoon of honey.

• Add some mosquito repellant plants to your garden like citronella, catnip, feverfew and lavender.

• Getting bitten while you barbeque? Throw some rosemary on the grill for a natural repellant that adds great flavor to your food.

And finally, according to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) in the USA, the best thing for protecting against mosquitos in the summer is to keep mosquitos outside by “using air-conditioning and window/door screens.” Luxury Screens offers a full array of fixed screens, retractable screens and pleated mosquito screens to protect your home and family from insects and the diseases that they can carry.
