Seeking Refuge From Mosquitoes In The Southeast

We’re sure this tale is a familiar one: You’re basking in the newfound warmth of the season, relishing the kiss of sun on your skin and the joy of fresh air in your lungs.

Only it’s all too short-lived. When living in the Southeast, it’s all too common for mosquitoes to snatch away your outdoor freedom, replacing it instead with a frustratingly persistent itch.

Thankfully, relief is close at hand when you seek refuge behind a screen.

The Dangers of Mosquito Exposure

While most of the time mosquitoes are simply considered a nuisance, “some mosquitoes are harmful and can spread viruses like West Nile, dengue, Zika, and parasites like malaria,” the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) explains.

For example, the Florida Department of Health (FDOH) has warned that common mosquito-borne viruses found in the Sunshine State include St. Louis encephalitis, Eastern equine encephalitis, and West Nile virus.

That being said, different states are liable to report varying diseases, as there are approximately 176 different types of mosquitoes found in the United States alone. Thus, protecting oneself from mosquito exposure is more than a mere matter of comfort.

Screening Instead of Scratching

Studies have found that the Southeast is especially prone to high mosquito activity because “The long hot summers, long rainy seasons, and periods of drought in the southeastern United States make for optimal breeding conditions for mosquitoes.”

But that doesn’t mean you have to be resigned to it. In fact, if your home or business in the Southeast is often overrun with mosquitoes — particularly in the summer months — the good news is that mosquito management and mitigation can easily be pursued.

Research conducted by the University of Florida found that mesh screens are highly effective in preventing insect intrusion, particularly in cases involving mosquitoes. For this reason, many find that installing a durable screen offers not only enhanced privacy and protection from the sun, but may also serve the purpose of fending off the unrelenting mosquitoes.

Seeking Solutions With Sunesta

In the Southeast, mosquito season typically spans from March to late October. However, screens can be a year-round asset to residents of this region, particularly as sun exposure remains high no matter the season.

In that case, why not install a highly-rated and nationally-lauded retractable screen that you can employ with the push of a button? Or, more specifically, why not contact Sunesta?

Sunesta doesn’t only offer custom-designed retractable screens and the nation’s leading warranty coverage, but it also offers 100% American-made products that are installed for free by your local dealer!
