Fan Mosquitoes Away

Fan Mosquitoes awayWith the outbreak of the Zika virus in Florida and the first Zika-related in death in Texas reported, it is time to really think about how you are going to protect your family. A few months ago, we posted about the Zika Virus and the new Mosquito Prevention system that we install.  Let’s discuss another way to protect your family from mosquitoes and keep you cool as well. One simple solution to repelling these bugs is an overhead fan!

You can literally fan mosquitoes away.

According to the American Mosquito Control Association, a large fan on your deck would work because mosquitoes are weak fliers.  The New York Times also reports that a fan’s breeze “disperses the human emanations that allow female mosquitos to zero in on us.” Entomologists from Michigan State University found that fan-generated wind greatly reduces mosquitoes and they recommend we use it in our backyards to protect ourselves and our pets.

Is it time to update your light fixtures?

update light fixtureHave you looked at your light fixtures recently?

Often fixtures are installed and then forgotten about and not really “seen” by the homeowners day in and day out.  Just the other day, I looked up at the light fixtures on my porch and was shocked to see how awful they looked!  Not only were they filthy but the finish has come off and it was just so out of style.  I couldn’t believe that I hadn’t noticed them sooner.  You will be surprised the difference it makes when you update light fixture.

So I urge you to pay attention to your light fixtures and fans inside and out and see if they need a good cleaning and maintenance or if they need replacing to fit into the look of your home.  Landscape Lighting Guru installs lights and fans inside and outside your home.  New light fixtures make a huge impact for a small cost.  And if you switch to LED lamps instead, you will receive an even bigger impact with lower electric bills.

If new fixtures aren’t in the budget yet, you can always use a little spray paint to update the look.  I was amazed at the difference a little spray paint could do!  For more information and directions on how to upscale your current fixtures with spray paint, click hereupdate light fixture

“Awesome Job Guys! We are so thrilled with the result and the job that was done.  Wow, I have dealt with 6-10 contractors over the past 2 years and this is the 1st time, the job was done correctly the first time, on time and done very well.  The team was very thorough in design and install and all the way to clean up. We could not even tell that they had been there except for the awesome lights installed in the front and the outdoor lighting in the back. I was and am still amazed how professional the staff was and how great of a job was done. We could not be more happier with them. AAA++++” Max N

Fight the Bite – Protect your Family from Mosquitoes this summer

Firepit-Web-main-Rev-1Officials fear the perfect storm this summer in Texas with our mild winter and wet spring which all lead to more mosquitoes.   The Zika virus is in the headlines but to date nobody in Texas has contracted the disease locally.  However, mosquitoes in Mexico are carrying the virus and it is expected to hit Texas this summer.   The bigger risk right now is West Nile Virus which is contracted locally and can have effects just as devastating as Zika.  So how can you protect your family this summer?  Here are some quick tips to fight the bite with mosquito protection!

Keep them out of your house by using air conditioning inside or making sure your screens in your windows and doors are intact.  Look for all sources of standing water around your home.  Did you know a soda can filled with water can be enough of a breeding ground for 20 mosquitoes?  So even if you don’t think you have standing water, it is worth a check around the house especially with all the recent rain.

Protect yourself from getting mosquito bites by limiting the time you spend outside during peak hours. If you are outside, using an insect repellent as well as wearing long sleeved shirts and long pants are recommended.  Many don’t like using the repellent and wearing long sleeves in the Texas heat doesn’t seem all that enjoyable.  So what else can you do?

hvrfabl_black-v2-webLandscape Lighting Guru is excited to announce we are now offering mosquito protection for your outdoor living areas with a unique new product.  The Mosquito Repellent fixture offers mosquito repellency to enhance your patio, deck or yard.  The patented mosquito protection system is effective providing protection within 15 minutes of use and is effective against all types of mosquitoes, including the Aedes aegypti mosquito, a known carrier of the Zika virus.  It is conveniently odorless, silent, invisible during use – no smelly oils, smoke, or zapping sounds to disturb you.

Elements of Lighting Artwork

Lighting ArtworkThe weather has been a challenge lately. I’m sure glad we get to do interior projects as well. Here are some before and after pictures of a beautiful 100 year old home in San Antonio. This customer has the most amazing art collection. The right LED lighting was really what was needed in this home.  Lighting artwork is an important element to the piece itself.

Most importantly, the client was happy with the results.  The following was his testimonial:

“The Guru team did a great job! The lighting in our home was more cave like than anything, it was impossible to enjoy the art pieces or even the living room after dark. The transformation was incredible, I feel like I am in a new home. Job well done!” ~Brad Gray
