The mosquitoes do not need to eat you alive in your Charlotte area backyard. There are a number of ways to control mosquitoes but you don’t want to rely on candles or tiki torches that have to be lit constantly for you and your guests to enjoy bug free outdoor living. Mosquito curtains are a great way to create some mosquito and flying bug protection. Depending on the height of your new porch, your outdoor living area may be a little less susceptible. Some flying insects don’t fly very far from the ground so an elevated porch will help do the job also.
