How to Enjoy Your Outdoor Spaces Without Mosquitoes



With the school year beginning and summer coming to an end, the time to enjoy the outdoors with friends and family will be at night, when the hustle and bustle of the day begin to wane. However, with the setting sun, come droves of mosquitoes and never-ending bug bites. To protect your loved ones or guests, you might break out the citronella candles, mosquito zappers, bug spray, and swatters. You may then realize that these tools are ineffective, loud, or require your undivided attention. 

Many people first turn to bug spray and candles. Even with copious amounts or extensive placement, most individuals still find themselves swatting and itching throughout the night. Zappers' loud crackles are disruptive, and swatters give you extra work to do. 

Regardless of the method used to deter pests, location is significant. If possible, spend time on decks or patios. Grass tends to attract even more bugs than other surfaces. While positioning can help, your goal should be to prevent and discourage breeding grounds and mosquitoes' optimal territories.

Several Ways to Remove or Reduce the Presence of Mosquitoes: 

  • Apply mosquito-busting treatments.
  • Drain any standing water left over from the rain or sprinkler system.
  • Keep your lawns and landscape tidy.
  • Plant natural repellents such as Citronella, Lemongrass, or Lavender.

Even with taking steps to combat mosquitoes, they will never completely disappear. Being surrounded by a layer of protection can, however, limit bugs from invading your space. If you would like the option of sitting outside with a protective barrier, you can add a curtain to a pergola or sit within a Liferoom with motorized screens. 

There's also the option of embracing nature and the outdoors without being outside! Sunrooms allow you to admire nature outside while still being indoors. You can enjoy the outdoors year-round and get protection from more than just mosquitoes!

Why Sunrooms?

There is a difference between a house and a home. A house is a building inhabited by individuals, most often relatives. However, a home is filled with love, togetherness, and memories. What better place to make those memories than a Four Seasons sunroom? You may be wondering what makes a sunroom the right addition to your house. Below we highlight five reasons why we believe a sunroom is the perfect way to make a house feel more like a home.
