Father’s Day Gift Guide – 4 Hardware Gifts for Pest Control
Home Improvement Gifts for Dad that Will Keep Pests Away
Residential pest control starts with home improvement upgrades. Here are four Father’s Day gift ideas that will not only help secure your home and yard from unwanted pests, but also give Dad the chance to flex his home improvement muscles.
1. Power Caulking Gun
Even the smallest crack or hole in the exterior of your home can be a gateway for pests to enter your home. A motorized power caulking gun will make the tedious task of sealing exterior holes a breeze.
2. Pole Saw/Chainsaw
Trimming back trees, hedges and shrubs will help eliminate breeding and nesting areas for pests like mosquitoes and bees. A 2-in-1 model that switches from pole saw to chainsaw allows you to cut up your downed branches in no time.
3. Dyson Cordless Stick Vacuum
Every dad deserves a Dyson. A Dyson cordless stick vacuum that converts to a handheld lets Dad clean up all his messes easily, but will also keep pesky pests out of the home. Vacuuming carpets, furniture and food areas will help remove any traces of food that can attract pests. This is especially important if you suspect a rodent problem. If you have pets or have seen evidence of a flea problem, routine vacuuming will evict fleas and eliminate their eggs. Lightweight and easy to use, a cordless stick vac makes the tedious work of routine vacuuming much easier.
4. Automatic Door Closer
The easiest, fastest way pests can enter your home is walking or flying right in through an open door. Installing an automatic door closer will keep the door closed, keep pests out and help keep your heating and cooling bills down too. Not only that, it can be a fun family project for Dad and kids.
You’ll be supporting research into lyme disease, too.
