Recently, we told you about some unique gifts for dad that will help him get the patio or deck ready for summer fun.
Before that first cookout, however, he might want to consider ways to protect partiers from mosquitoes. We feature several devices that will help keep guests happy when there are no pesky flying insects to detract from the good times. Best of all, you won’t need to spray your yard or your friends with chemical bug repellants.
The one-acre natural-attractant trap lures and kills mosquitoes in yards up to one acre without harmful chemicals. The trap mimics the natural conditions of human habitation by emitting heat, odorless carbon dioxide (the same gas people expel during respiration) and light to lure mosquitoes. When mosquitoes are drawn inside, they die of dehydration.
Acting on similar principles, The Dusk Activated Half Acre Mosquito Trap automatically activates at the time when the pests are most prevalent and turns off at dawn. As mosquitoes gravitate to the unit, a fan pulls them into a collection bag where they are trapped and die.
If dad would like to create a haven from all flying insects day or night, a unique gift for Father’s Day might be our Patio Table Mosquito Canopy. This enclosure fits over a patio table’s umbrella to provide a protective canopy that keeps out biting insects. It’s made from sturdy 68-denier polyester netting too small for insect pests to penetrate. A zippered flap provides easy entry and exit for humans.
Perhaps the dad in your life is one who prefers to walk in the great outdoors. In coming days, we’ll tell you about some wearable items that keep mosquitoes from biting and make hiking, gardening or backpacking more pleasant, while making for great Father’s Day gifts, too.
