Summertime in the Northeast is all about long days outdoors, enjoying the beautiful weather and natural surroundings.

However, one thing that can quickly spoil your fun is mosquitoes. Not only can they be an annoyance, but they can also pose a serious health risk as they carry and transmit diseases like the West Nile virus and the Zika virus.

The good news is that you can protect yourself and your family from these pesky insects with Sunesta’s custom-made, retractable screens. In this blog post, we’ll explain how these screens can help keep mosquitoes at bay and your family healthy.

Diving Into How Mosquitoes Spread Diseases

Mosquitoes are known vectors of diseases that can cause serious health problems depending on the individual and what is currently circulating in your area.

Specifically, “When a mosquito feeds on blood, it also swallows any viruses or parasites living in the blood,” according to the World Mosquito Program. “These viruses and parasites can be transferred to the next person the mosquito bites through its saliva. Any disease that is spread in this way from mosquito to human (or animal) is known as a ‘mosquito-borne disease’.”

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports the following diseases as ones spread from mosquitoes to humans:

  • Zika virus
  • West Nile virus
  • Malaria
  • Chikungunya virus
  • And more

Pay No Mind to Pests with a Screen

Sunesta’s retractable screens can help protect you from mosquito bites and the illnesses they carry. This is because these screens provide a barrier between you and the mosquitoes, keeping them from entering your outdoor living space.

Sunesta retractable screens are not only effective but safe too. They’re made from high-quality materials that are durable and able to withstand wear and tear. Not only are they a great way to keep mosquitoes and other pests at bay, but they’re also easy to clean and low maintenance, making them a practical choice for homeowners.

What’s more, you have the option to decide just how tightly woven you want your mesh fabric to be.

Finally, you can easily open or close these screens with the touch of a button, giving you the flexibility to use your outdoor living areas when you want, and to keep them closed when mosquitoes are most active.

For Northeastern states, like New York, “they are active from early summer until late fall.”
