With Father’s Day right around the corner, you may be racking your brain for gift ideas. Should you go with the usual patterned tie accompanied with a funny (and perhaps slightly inappropriate) card? That’s one route. Or maybe a new tool box? Sure, he may need a new one. But here’s an idea that you probably haven’t considered, and it’s one that could really be useful and give your dad some help your dad relax and relaxation: Get your dad a pest control plan for Father’s Day.

The benefits of a pest control plan for the DIY dad

If your dad is like most dads, he probably likes to take care of things around the house on his own and wants to be seen doing so. He may think that with some tools in the garage, some over-the-counter pesticides from the hardware store and a little hard work and sweat, things like pest control can be handled without the help of a professional.

With most pests, DIY pest control methods may provide some temporary relief, but they often fall short of complete control. Pest control professionals have proper training and skills to help find and identify pests and then know the proper means to remove and control the infestation. They also know the effective ways to help prevent pest infestations from happening in the first place.

Get dad a pest control plan for Father’s Day and let him know that has done a good job, but that it’s okay, he can get some rest and let the professionals take it from here.

The benefits of a free termite inspection

A free termite inspection from Terminix would be a nice complement for your gift as well. Termites cause billions of dollars in damage and treatment costs each year for homeowners in the United States. Termite activity can be hard to spot and can remain undetected before signs of termite damage are spotted. And by the time those signs are spotted, extensive and expensive damage may already be done. A termite control professional is trained to look for and identify the signs of a termite infestation.

When you contact Terminix to schedule a free termite inspection, a trained technician will come out and inspect your home for signs of termites and potential access points. Based on what is or is not found, the technician will recommend a plan customized to meet your needs.

Protecting your home from potentially costly hazards, like termites, can be a lot of pressure for your dad. A free termite inspection could be just the help he needs to put his feet up and relax.

Pests are relentless at trying to invade your home, but Terminix is relentless in stopping them so your dad doesn’t have to be. Protecting your home can be a lot of hard work, so on Father’s Day, contact Terminix to help give your dad some help and peace of mind when it comes to pests and termites.
