A cooperative fifty-state effort will distribute the Screen Manufacturers Association's new For Health’s Sake posters and newspaper publicity through the CDC Centers for Disease Control. Considering the size of the sometimes deadly pests, an ounce of prevention goes a long way toward the safety of family and community while complacency comes with considerable risk. Screen Manufacturers Association would like to remind seasoned homeowners and those entering the world of home improvement and maintenance that there is a large variety of screening choices available. Screens are intended for ventilation and protection from insects. Available for windows, front and back doors, sliding doors, pet doors and even garage doors when kept in repair or replaced annually will provide everyone with peace of mind keeping all protected from infection and disease. Screens are not intended to keep anything inside the home. Replace screens in disrepair and add custom or standard screens to all areas of the home where insects can invade.
