Warm weather means spending time outdoors, relaxing with your friends and family, and enjoying the higher temperatures. However, with the summer season here, that also means that insects have arrived as well. There is nothing more frustrating than having an insect inside your home and not being able to get it outdoors, especially in your screen enclosure. Here are few ways to keep your screen room bug-free during the warm weather.
Plant some herbs – One way to keep specific bugs away from hanging out in your screen room is to have a small herb garden in that part of your home. Since it does receive a decent amount of sunlight, your screen room is the ideal environment for growing things like basil, rosemary, and thyme. Not only will you reap the benefits of these delicious herbs in your cooking, but growing them also will keep certain insects away as well.
Patch any holes – The smallest rip in your screening can allow bugs to set up shop in your screen room. That is why it is important to patch any holes, tears, or rips in your screening as soon as the weather starts to get warm again, so there is no easy way for insects to enter that part of your home.
