Screens will keep those insects out of homes in Tampa Florida

At Tampa Bay Rescreens and Repair, we pride ourselves in keeping you comfortable in your own home by protecting you from the outside elements, including pesky insects that could encroach on your living space. Using high-quality rescreening materials like Super Screen ®, our finished product is second-to-none in the Tampa Bay Area. Here’s a short list of the types of insects that our pool cages, screened-in porches, and lanais can keep out.

Mosquitoes

Probably the biggest insect problem that people complain about in Tampa Florida is the mosquito. In Florida, mosquitoes could possibly carry illness, and cause uncomfortable bites and so avoiding mosquitoes is a big advantage of an insect screen. You can spend a lot of money on chemical repellents, tiki torches, and smelly citronella candles, but a screen installed by Tampa Bay Rescreens and Repair could save you from having to come out of pocket for a short-term solution.

Spiders

Spiders, while they serve to keep some other parts of the insect population under control, are not something people want roaming around their pool or porch. Their bites, depending on the spider, can make you extremely sick or even cause death. At Tampa Bay Rescreens and Repair, we want to make sure you and your family (pets included) are protected from spiders.

Flies

So if your spiders aren’t doing their job and helping keep the fly population down, our screens can give you an extra layer of protection. As well as being a nuisance, common flies can present a health danger if they enter contact with food. Keeping out flies is perhaps the most common reason to set up a screen, and all of our screens will obstruct entry from flies.

Bees and Wasps

Bees and wasps are among the most feared intruders into Tampa Florida homes, since their sting is typically the most painful of all the insects we’ve talked about. The pool cage material we provide can keep out these types of insects and keep your family safe from others in this class such as hornets, mud daubers, and yellow-jackets.

Midges (no-seeums)

Colloquially referred to as “no-seeums”, the biting midge is a tiny insect. As you might guess, they are so small that you can hardly see them, which is where we get the term. As a result of their size, midges have the ability to enter through considerably smaller sized areas than most of other pests, and therefore need a finer mesh. Screens provided by other companies may not stop the entry of midges. In numerous parts of the country, midges are not a problem and so this is not needed, but in Tampa Florida, they can be a great nuisance. There are over 4,000 species of biting midges in the Ceratopogonidae family, and over 1,000 in just one genus, Culicoides.
