The chemicals that will be used in your home are mixed in such a way that they are only toxic to pests – most are nearly all water, with just a small amount of active ingredients.
Occasionally, we’ll require that you remove your pets from the area until the application has fully dried. Once it’s dried, there should not be enough active ingredients remaining to harm your pets.
The chemicals used in your home are safe to all, including pregnant women. However, in specific applications, we require that you leave the home until the treatment has dried.
Typically, the treatment that will be used in your home has little or no odor and no fumes. Occasionally, you may be asked to leave prior to treatment – but you’ll be informed of this beforehand.
The odor in pesticides never eliminates pests – it only repels them. It’s the chemical residue that eliminates pests. Most new research shows that by using pesticides without repellents, you actually increase the chances that pests will come in contact with the residue.
Unless the surface can be stained by water, most items inside or outside your home will not be stained by a pesticide.
Your well’s location is an important factor that we consider if injecting chemicals into your soil is necessary. We make sure to apply the treatment while maintaining proper distance from your well.
Because the pesticides used do not create fumes, they should not aggravate any existing medical conditions. However, in some cases, pests such as mice, rats, or cockroaches can actually worsen asthma.
That is no longer the case. Pesticides with known high carcinogenic properties are no longer allowed to be registered with the EPA as pesticides.
