Is Pest Control Safe for Pets?

Whether spraying your yard or your home, a qualified pest control company will be sure to use products and sprays which are safe for you and your family. For many of us, our pets are more than just a "pet" -- they're part of the family. So, we know how important it is to you that your pest control services are safe for your family and your pets. The good news is, most qualified pest control companies have sprays which are perfectly safe for your pets. There are some pieces of advice we can give you to make sure you're keeping your pets as safe as possible, when it comes to your pest control treatments.

Keeping Pest Control Pet-Friendly

The products we use for pest control treatments are safe for use around family pets. There are a few tips we usually provide so that you can make sure your furry friends are kept as safe as possible.

Let pest control sprays dry before allowing your pets around treated areas
If your home's perimeter or baseboards were sprayed, it's best to keep your animals from touching, licking, or sniffing the spray until it has dried. Usually, this takes about 1-2 hours, depending on the weather and temperature. Once the spray is dry, it is perfectly safe for your pets to be around the areas which were sprayed.

Cover fish bowls, reptile habitats, and other small animal habitats
It can be a good idea to cover fish tanks and small animal habitats during a spray application. Once the spray application is complete, you can uncover these habitats, tanks, and bowls. Though our insect and pest control sprays are safe in homes with pets, it's a good idea to prevent a wet spray from coming into contact with these very small pets.
