If your mission is to keep pests from invading your home, it's time to invest in high-quality screens for your doors, windows and porch. Unfortunately, some pests revel in mischief, and tearing through screens is one of their specialties. The good news is that Bugsy Screen Repair can provide you with a turnkey solution.
Pests to Watch Out for
Depending on where you live, you may find more insects or more rodents lurking around your porch. Like antsy criminals, pests will seize any opportunity to enter your home, so don't ignore them or underestimate their abilities.
Grasshoppers are nocturnal and mostly active around late summer and fall. In some cultures, they are considered to be a harbinger of good luck, but this means very little to homeowners. These jumping critters have a tendency to ruin gardens. With their little jaws and claws, they can damage just about any fabric-based screen that you put up.
When you spot one or two crickets at your door, don't panic. Yes, crickets are similar to gangs, but this only means that they are mostly problematic when they are in a large group. Since they stay out of sight during the day and come out at night to forage, you can call them a pest with a plan. Crickets are scavenging critters that feed on clothing, carpets, plants and other insects. If they want to find a source of food in your home, they will work together to get through the screens protecting your doors and windows.
Wasps are commonly feared and hated for these two reasons: They sting when they feel threatened, and they cause trouble wherever they nest. That's why you shouldn't let their nest stay attached to your home. The longer it stays, the more these insects will weaken your home's structural integrity. They may even attack your screen to get inside your home.
Children and Their Games
When your children are playing in the yard, watch out! It's only a matter of time before you hear a ball breaking your screen and window. Children can sometimes be mischievous and out of control while having fun, so it's OK to assume that they have a special knack for getting into trouble. As the parent, you can help save your screens by setting some rules, but accidents are somewhat inevitable. Keep this in mind, and remember that Bugsy Screen Repair is at your service.
With each changing season, the elements fluctuate accordingly, so your screens can sustain damage on any given day. From hail to debris, many things can come through your screens and windows when the weather is nasty. Thankfully, some damage is repairable. All you need is a team of professionals, and Bugsy Screen Repair is available to help.
