Is Pest Control Safe for Pets?

Is Pest Control Safe for Pets

The truth is, working with a pest management service can be a great way to ensure that the process of getting rid of pests at your home or business is safe for you and your family.

MAKING PEST CONTROL SAFE FOR PETS

The Environmental Protection Agency issues regulations designed to minimize the amount of dangerous chemical exposure for humans and animals. The gold standard for reducing impact is a proactive plan called Integrated Pest Management.

HOW TO PROTECT CATS AND DOGS

If you are trying to handle your own pest control, you should be aware of how to keep pets safe. Insect baits and rodent bait stations should be kept away from dogs and cats. Dogs who go outside will also tend to go after fertilizer/pesticide mixes, so be wary if you use them on your lawn or in your garden. When you’re treating for fleas in the home, remember that your pets should be crated or confined to rooms not being treated. After you apply the spray or liquid, let it dry for an hour before letting your pet back into the room. Also move food, water dishes and toys out of the area being treated. Another option is to hire a pest management professional and ask them about their experience with pets. They can tell you how to keep your pets out of the way when they’re applying treatment solutions, and they may choose to use stations outside the home in order to keep them (and any pets) safe inside.

EXOTIC PETS

If you have pets at home, you know they can get sick if they come into contact with pesticides. Using this knowledge, you should make sure not to let your pets around the area where pesticides are being used or applied. Covering up tanks and cages will help keep your pet safe. If you have recently been treated for an infestation of insects, you may want to be careful about taking lizards out with you until the treatment has completely worn off. It’s best to contact a pest management professional if you have any concerns.
