Especially if they leave little gifts like excrement and dead animals on the lawn. As these aren't really thing you want around the kids when they are playing in the grass.

This is a particularly clever gadget that cleans and disinfects the floor without using any chemicals. So not only do you know that your floors are clean. But you don't have to risk using strong chemicals that can be harmful either. Or, how about a gadget such as an air purifier with a HEPA filter which catches particles, so they aren't flowing freeing around your home.
