Depends on how you like to use the porch. Mosquitos and other bugs will eat you up early morning and from dusk onwards. Basically unusable other than during the day.

We've used the Mosquito Squad https://wilmington.mosquitosquad.com/ for three years now .... result, no mosquitos for three years now.

Was that a friend that told you that you didn't need a screened in room?

I should have been more specific. It is pertaining to a 2nd floor balcony. It was a builder.

If you have a main floor screened in patio agree the balcony would not need to be screened. Really depends on how you plan on using the space.

I have heard that the mosquitoes don't bother you if you are more than 8 feet off the ground on a deck/balcony. But then again I have never seen a house with only screens on the first floor windows!! Maybe someone with more scientific knowledge will chime in.

I live close to St James (Oak Island) and have three balconies one on each level and can say that the second floor is not immune to mosquitos or other flying insects, third floor is somewhat safer.

I dunno .... we live in St James too, I built our home with a large pool on the patio, directly on a large pond, surrounded in front and back by woods with an open second story porch / deck facing the pond and our property never has mosquitos at any time of day, we hang out upstairs and on the ground level all the time with friends for hours ..... and my wife is a TRUE mosquito magnet ..... it's absolutely due to the Mosquito Squad, we have used them for four years ..... https://wilmington.mosquitosquad.com/.

Default Fiber Optic

What is the status on fiber optic availability in SJP? Looks like ATMC and ATT are both offering service, but only partially for the neighborhood?

We are building in the newer section of Moss Hammock Wynd, about a block or so from the new Wellness Center.

Thanks for any info!

Steve
