Backyard Movie Nights: A Weekly Occurrence Because of Mosquito Joe
At our house, we are all about making memories during the summer. We have a unique situation because I (Rachael) work from home and my husband, Greg, is a teacher. For 5 1/2 weeks of the summer, we are all home together. This arrangement has had its challenges in years past, but this year has been different. The kids are getting older and we are able to do more things that we couldn’t before. This summer instead of going on a vacation, we decided to use some money to invest in items that will be used to make memories. One of those items was the equipment to do outdoor backyard movies. And after our first backyard movie night, the kids declared this MUST BE a weekly occurrence!
My favorite part is we are doing all cherished movies from Greg and I’s childhood. Movies like Lady & the Tramp, Free Willy, The Wizard of Oz, Annie, Peter Pan & many others are on our list. If you have a movie suggestion, please comment on this post and let me know! There is nothing better than our classic childhood movies!
In years past, we would never be able to do this. We had a serious mosquito problem that kept us from enjoying our backyard. You see we have a little creek behind our property that is a breeding ground for mosquitos. And well, mosquitos also love our blood so we all get destroyed if they are around. That was until we discovered Mosquito Joe and decided to prepare for spring and summer this year! Mosquito Joe’s motto is Make Outside Fun Again and that is exactly what they have done for us. Now we can sit outside for hours without getting a single bite. It’s quite amazing!
How Does Mosquito Joe Work
Mosquito Joe provides mosquito control treatment to residential and commercial customers. Their technicians are trained mosquito control experts dedicated to one thing: getting rid of mosquitoes so that you can enjoy being outside again. Outfitted with the latest gear and backed by the coordination of a top-notch support staff, their technicians in the field get the job done swiftly, thoroughly and professionally.
Take a look at their services to decide which one best suits your pest control needs:
- Custom Barrier Sprays: Barrier spray mosquito treatments work right away – and keep working for weeks.
- All Natural Treatments: An alternative to our barrier treatment, our all-natural service, repels mosquitoes immediately but has less adhesive properties than our synthetic spray.
- Special Events: Your party, barbecue, wedding, reunion or any other outdoor event should be remembered for the good times, not the mosquitoes.

I am excited to have a special offer to share with you, my readers! For your first spray, the cost would be $44.99 (up to 1/2 acre lot). All you have to do is register online and use the promo code – cumminglocal.
How To Set Up Your Own Backyard Movie Night
First things first, you will need to buy a projector and a screen. Based off of price and reviews we choose the Vankyo projector and a portable 100-inch screen. It was super easy to set up. The projector can be hung from a screw or you can use the portable stand. We chose to hang the screen from a screw on our deck stairs. The projector was set up on a small stand and lifted up with books. The projector we purchased has connections for a kindle fire stick, HDMI cable, USB, or DVD cable. The options are endless to watch movies outdoors with this equipment!
QUICK TIP: We plan to purchase this projector stand to use for future movie nights. It will make it easy to change the height of the projector.
As I mentioned before, we are doing classic childhood movies. Here are the ones we have on our list:
- Chronicles of Narnia
- Karate Kid
- Back To The Future
- The Never Ending Story
- Mary Poppins
- Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
- Peter Pan
- Swiss Family Robinson
- Free Willy
- Robin Hood
- land Before Time
