How about we start this blog post with some interesting, but at the same time gruesome facts! Any readers of a nervous or sensitive disposition, feel free to skip this paragraph and pick it up later on.
Okay, so you’re still with me, great… in that case I’ll continue.
Are you aware that a mosquito will happily fly up to 14 miles for a blood feast? Or that houseflies have a nasty habit of tasting whatever they land on with their feet (and then regurgitating it!). Or that moths contaminate foodstuffs by leaving traces of dead skin on your ham sandwich? It’s all pretty gross really but the fact of the matter is that wherever you reside, if you let insects into your home, they will be causing these types of problems on a regular basis. Aside from being unhygienic, generally sinking their teeth into you and making you itch, they also have a habit of being totally annoying. This is where retractable insect screens can help!
Those with a sensitive disposition can pick up this article right here….
Retractable screens offer the perfect solution for keeping insects out of your home while letting those cool breezes in. Being retractable they won’t look unsightly when not in use. In fact they do as the name suggests and ‘retract’ back into a slim box which is hidden at the top of the window/door. However when they’re down the different types of mesh can be small enough to stop even the most tiniest of insects from becoming a nuisance.
Retractable screens come in all shapes and sizes and fit a wide variety of doors, openings and windows. If you want to impress your friends and family then no problem, some retractable meshes come with remote control opening and closing for ease of use. Alternatively if you love a bit of manual labour then they also come in a ‘pulley’ version too. It isn’t just the super-fine mesh that’s available. In addition, there’s mesh that filters UV light and even mesh that blocks out light altogether. This is great for the bedrooms of small children or those who work shifts and need to sleep during the day.
With a retractable screen you really can beat the bug! All you’ve got to do is to choose which type is right for you.
