Lack of window screens [TIDU]

One of the first things I noticed when we first came to London (as well as when we travel) is that houses do not have screens on windows or doors. I don’t understand why it is this way as I hear people complain about bugs getting into their houses or finding solutions to dealing with bugs getting into the house.

I find it frustrating that if I want to have my window open all day, I run the risk of bugs finding their way into our house but it does get pretty muggy and the air gets a touch stale if I keep the windows closed all the time. It’s frustrating because the UK have been dealing with this problem for way longer than Canada has and just about every house that I know in Canada has a screen on the doors and windows. It’s not hard to install and they allow for fresh air all the time.

Things I don’t understand
