When the sun is shining, the temperature is just right, and you finally have some time to relax on your home’s patio, you’re all set to enjoy the perfect day. However, the flies and bugs that also want to spend time around your patio have other ideas. As a result, you can’t enjoy reading a book, eating your meal, or simply soaking up the sunshine due to these pests. 

Instead of hoping bug spray will do the job, consider using a Rollac solar shade to keep flies away from your patio. By doing so, you’ll not only get maximum insect protection, but also a great screen that can provide numerous other benefits as well.

By choosing Rollac for your patio, you’ll be able to control your retractable screens with the touch of a button. In fact, you can use either the TV-like remote control that comes with your screens or instead download the MyLink app to your smartphone to raise or lower your ZipShades whenever you wish.

Even if you have a large patio, keep in mind that our Rollac ZipShades can have a width and height range of as much as 20 feet, meaning they can easily cover an area as large as 235 square feet while still looking stylish and staying firm.

Wind Resistance 

Even when the wind is gusting around your patio, our Rollac retractable screens provide maximum wind resistance that will make even the windiest of days feel calm. Tested to withstand wind gusts of 80 miles per hour, you’ll never worry about those sudden breezes again.

Solar Protection

Along with making sure you don’t get blown away by strong wind gusts and bothered by pesky insects, our Rollac ZipShades also offer you plenty of protection from UV rays and the sun’s unrelenting heat. Instead of assuming it’s just too hot to enjoy your patio, extend your screens and bask in the sunshine.

Other Tips for a Bug-Free Patio

Once you install our Rollac zip screens, here are some other tips to help you have a bug-free patio.

Clean and Maintain Your Patio

Bugs love dirt and grime. By cleaning and maintaining your patio regularly, bugs will look elsewhere for a new hangout.

Put Away Food

Whether it’s after entertaining your friends or feeding the family pet, don’t leave any food out on tables or the floor to attract unwanted insect guests.

Cover Your Trash Cans

Uncovered trash cans are open invitations to flies, mosquitoes, and other bugs. Keep your cans covered, and you’ll have few if any insects around your patio.

Light Citronella Candles at Night

Great for keeping mosquitoes and other flying insects at bay, lighting citronella candles at night will ensure you have a peaceful patio experience.

Use Fly-Repellant Plants

If you love flowers and herbs, consider having marigolds, lavender, catnip, and mint around your patio, since all of these are excellent natural ways to repel flies.
