Why are all the porches in Florida screen in?

Report as

All the porches in Florida are screened in so as to provide fresh air and feel closer to nature. It is also much easier and quicker to install than a regular room.

hucky5670 is right. If you've ever had a palmetto bug (their name for cockroach) land in your sweet tea, you'd know why, lol.

LOL Farmer, yep I live in SC, and the palmetto bugs definitely look like giant cockroaches to me and have had them land in my sweet tea. LOL

FL is full of water. Lakes and swamps everywhere. These are breeding grounds for mosquitoes. If you don't screen in your porch you would be covered head to toe in bites! And what FarmerGirl said about the palmetto bug, Those things are BIG! First time I saw one of those I almost bought a leash for it and named it Fido!
