Homeowners with indoor pets often are concerned with the safety of these animals when having their home treated for pests. Many people wonder what pest control is safe for pets? Or if it is okay to have animals in your home while it is being treated by a pest control technician.
The truth is, that these days pesticides used in our homes and businesses are more often than not safe to have around our pets. The pesticides we use are very low concentrations, typically coming in at under 1% of the total solution. While this is powerful enough to effectively kill and protect against insects, it is not nearly strong enough to be toxic for humans or pets. If you live in a home with fish or small pets, talk to the technician who comes out to your home first to ensure the safety of your pet.
The chemicals we use are not airborne, they are concentrated into liquid droplets which are used to protect the perimeter of your space. This minimizes the chances for exposure to these chemicals from breathing. It is important to keep your animals away from the treated areas until they have completely dried, which happens quickly. Be sure to ask your pest control technician any questions you may have in relation to drying time or safety measures to protect the pets in your home. A good rule of thumb is to keep your pets away from any treated surface for 1-2 hours, to ensure the chemicals used to treat for pests has had enough time to completely dry.
