Year-Round Insect Protection
From Austin & Central Texas' Bugs
In the heat of central Texas Summer (and especially after a rainy day), mosquitoes lay eggs in warm, wet environments. Standing water on your lawn is the perfect place to start a new mosquito family, and Austin and San Antonio pests will take full advantage. Swarms of mosquitoes can keep you from enjoying the outdoor areas of your home – until you get a retractable mosquito screen from Shading Texas to keep them at bay.
Austin and the surrounding central Texas area is also famous for cicadas that love to sing in the heat, as well as huge families of grasshoppers and small swarms of pesky gnats that relish the warm weather. In the cold, spiders get frosty and move toward the heat of your home. Stop them at the gates by deploying your motorized insect screen. Beetles and moths also don’t do well in the cold and will start moving toward your home the moment they detect heat.
As a Bonus, Our Motorized Bug Screens Can Block Out Sun Glare
Our retractable insect patio screens also block harmful UV rays from entering your home or outdoor recreation areas. While our standard patio shades are made to block the sun and let in light, insect shades are made from a much more dense fabric that blocks entry to insects. This fabric provides intensified protection from the sun and lets in less light than our standard shades.
But don’t worry, they don’t block all of the central Texas sun. Retractable mosquito screens are made for the enjoyment of the outdoors in mind, and your outdoor views will still beautiful even when the screen is down.
Plenty of Room for Breeze
Mosquito screens are densely woven – but not too densely. Feel the breeze while blocking out insects to enjoy your Austin or San Antonio home or outdoor areas the way they were meant to be enjoyed. Combine insect and sun protection with an Austin breeze to experience true ease and comfort.
Motorized Mosquito Protection
Since our shades are motorized, you can choose when to let the bugs roam free and when to shelter your home with a simple touch. Garage door insect screens can be rolled up or down by linking with the Somfy myLink application on your smartphone or tablet.
What Bugs Do Insect Patio Screens Protect Against?
The Austin and surrounding central Texas climate is home to a range of insects and pests that are all capable of ruining your time outdoors. With the region’s humid summers and warm winter seasons, insects remain in the Austin area all year long, trapping residents inside their homes with the threat of painful bites and stings. Patios and porches also make attractive nesting grounds, inviting colonies of insects to thrive and grow in numbers just outside your windows and doors.
Each of our Austin, Texas, insect patio screens has a weave dense enough to stop all the insects common to the area, and we’ll install yours for a seamless fit to prevent insects from sneaking in around the edges. Regardless of the types of bugs bothering you and your family, we’re here to help you stop them from interrupting your time outside. At Shading Texas, our mosquito screens for sale in Austin and the surrounding central Texas area are proven effective against all Texas insects large and small, including:
- Mosquitoes: All Texans are familiar with how oppressive mosquitoes can be, and anyone caught outside during a swarm is going to be in for an uncomfortable few days. In Austin, and all of central Texas, these pests can bite all day, and many species carry dangerous diseases like the Zika and West Nile viruses.
- Spiders: Texas is home to a wide variety of spiders, and they all have characteristics that likely make them unwelcome in your outdoor space. While many are relatively harmless, venomous black widow and brown recluse spiders are common both inside and outside in this area.
- Fire ants: Fire ants are invasive and one of Austin’s worst pests, with colonies reaching millions of ants in strength. When fire ants bite, they trigger other ants to start biting too, causing a chain reaction that could lead to health complications.
- Bees and wasps: In Austin and the surrounding central Texas area, bees are common from spring through fall, while wasps tend to peak around the middle of summer. These insects all offend with painful stings when they’re agitated, and for both children and adults, such stings can cause severe toxic or allergic reactions that require medical care.
- Palmetto bugs: Widely known as roaches, palmetto bugs are big and ugly, and they won’t hesitate to try to come into your home. The good news is, our insect screens stop palmetto bugs on the ground as well as the ones flying through the air, so you can enjoy your patio without worrying about these hearty intruders.
- Scorpions: Central Texas has two species of scorpion common to the area, and both will try to get into your patio and home for warmth. These scorpions are small and difficult to spot, but when they sting, you’ll know it thanks to a painful sensation described as worse than the sting of a bee or hornet.
