Bug Protection for Your Screened-In Porch
If there’s a way into your screen porch, you can bet pests will find it. In a well-built screen porch, the door should be the only potential way a pest can find its way into the room.
In order to effectively protect against bugs, a screen porch must be completely enclosed, but if your porch wasn’t well built from the start, it is often the deck floorboards that were overlooked. Traditional decking has a 1/8” or 1/4” gap between boards, which is more than enough room for mosquitoes or other bugs to crawl through.
Here are the three most effective ways you can build or update a structure to provide more complete protection from creepy-crawlies.
