A Simple Plan: Screens

Be Bug-Free at Summer Dining!

No matter how fun and entertaining the idea of an outdoor activity is, the truth can be at times dissatisfying. There could be nothing far worse than having scratches because of insect bites and even sharing your meal with those bugs.

Alfresco dining will not necessarily mean comfortable and tight, but just like any home there are a lot of solutions, gizmos and gadgets that will remove your uneasiness in no time.

The Gizmo – one of the most familiar scents during summer season apart from the beach, sun creams, and grilled barbeques is definitely a bug repellant. These are offered in oils, sprays, and lotions which usually comes off with an ugly smell. Furthermore, there is a possibility that you will feel a stinging sensation; quite cynical though because it is meant to prevent bugs from stinging you! Yet, there are currently new forms of insect repellants found in the market such as burners and candles. These gizmos are designed to give off a scent that insects don’t like making them evacuate the area as soon as possible without bothering you. But of course, woody smoke and citronella are bonuses to getting rid of them. When you go to the store, you will find different classy designs which can add up as a decor while making the area bug free. Also, most of these gizmos don’t hurt the insects so you can be at peace.

The Gadget – these vacuum bagged bug suckers and light zappers are more techy and certainly less insect friendly. If you just want to be 100% free from insects, you can purchase these items from the store. Plus, you will even find watches that give out ultrasonic frequencies in stopping mosquitoes from landing onto your skin. With a wide range of options, these are ideal for people who are into gadgets.

The Solution – these products include a retractable porch screen; this is great for people who are not into gadgets and gizmos. These screens can be placed on any sheltered patio and porch where you will be able to have a peaceful dinner for the insects can’t go through the screen. These mesh-like screens can be removed if you wish to do so, and certainly does not ruin the view. This option is different from the other two in terms of its smell and insect friendliness.

If you wish to have dinner outside with friends, expect that you will not be alone since bugs and insects will come too. These insects can add up as an appeal especially with beetles and butterflies, but if it is not, then you will most likely experience unwanted bites and scratches. That is why insect repellents were made, to keep you away from insect bites. So you can maybe at least keep one insect repellant at home in case you need it. And wait, you might want to check on your glass before taking a gulp!
