## Mosquito curtains
An alternative to covering your deck (and your guests!) with bug spray, these mosquito curtains provide a physical barrier against mosquitoes. They’re washable and removable, and come in various colours, including white, ivory and black. And, they are made to fit most porches, because the screens hang from tracking similar to the type used in hospital rooms.
