Though gazing at insects and other creepy crawlies might not be too high on the to-do list of an adult, there is nothing more intriguing to a child than examining local wildlife and figuring out just why they do the things they do. It might be a bit difficult to catch a butterfly, and maybe not so appealing to collect a stink bug, but with this month’s HomTooling project, these bugs can be examined and observed from relative comfort and safety. This project will leave you with a stable and unique insect enclosure that will both protect the critter that your child is fascinated with, and keep your house safe from unruly escape artists. We’re joined by Sue today to help walk you through how to make this bug box.
The Arizona fires have occupied all of our minds this past week, some of us more than others. Now that Flagstaff and Coconino have been put under fire restrictions, these fires may seem more real than they were before. Wildfire season occurs every year, but it is always good to refresh just what a stage 4 and stage 3 restriction is, and it is also good to refresh on how to practice fire prevention and keep your house safe.
It’s almost summertime, and flowers are blooming and gardens are thriving now that the cold snaps are over and the sun hangs in the sky for a long while. If you’re noticing that you don’t quite have enough room for your plants, or you’d like something small to grow indoors, HomCo has the solution for you. This month’s HomTooling project is a small cedar planter box. It’s a quick and simple project that is incredibly durable, flexible, and a great way to get some small indoor plants to flourish. Mike from the Paint Department is here today to help walk us through how to put together this DIY planter box.
Now that the spring season is kicking into full force and summer is right around the corner, it may be time to think about the sorts of creatures that will be joining you in the coming months. Some are welcome, like the deer and elk that stand in parks during the early morning hours, while others may be a bit less desirable. Before your dog gets skunked and you’re running to the grocery store for tomato products, come by HomCo Lumber and Hardware for animal repellents and other pest control necessities. Avoid the mess of ants infiltrating your kitchens and dogs smelling like acrid fumes. Not only do we have this post outlining some of the pest control products we carry, but we also have an attached video where Cecy from Lawn and Garden walks us through the average, and above average, pest control products.
Now that winter is over and the skies have hopefully stopped gifting us with a deluge of white fluff, you may be thinking about putting your snow blower away for the rest of the year. However, it isn’t as easy as chucking it into the back of your garage to collect dust until next November. There are a few steps that you should follow, and a few procedures that will not only preserve the life of your snow blower but are almost required to keep it functioning properly. There’s nothing worse than waking up to a big snowstorm with a dead snow blower. With these tips and directions, that dream won’t become a reality. Visit our Stihl Department at HomCo Lumber and Hardware if you have any questions about proper snow blower storage. We’re always happy to help!
Do you need something to keep out those pesky rabbits and rodents that constantly bug your flower beds? Is your yard just too open? Do you have no opportunity for shade or landscaping?

Fencing can be utilized for both your general yard and your specified garden plots. Not only can you craft it according to your specific lifestyle needs, but you can do it yourself for a low cost.

5 stars solely because they have fresh cookies every time I walk into this place. How can you not be in a great mood after eating a delicious chocolate chip cookie!? And they usually have exactly what I need…..

They have almost everything you would need from a home improvement store and more. They are way more welcoming and helpful than Home Depot but slightly more expensive. I still try to do all my shopping here to support a local business that has given back to the community.

What a fantastic store! Never met a more friendly staff and management. If you need it, they got it!
