Your furry friend is probably more like a part of your family than a pet. Just as with any of your family members, you want to make sure your pet is safe. There’s long been a myth that pest control isn’t safe for pets, but it’s possible to successfully deal with pests without posing health risks to your pets.
Pest Control Safe for Pets
The idea that exterminators spraying for pests in the yard and house isn’t healthy for pets is an old myth. While it’s true, some of the older chemicals used were dangerous for pets, and people, today pest control specialists make sure to use pest control options that are safe for your furry friends.
While pest control is safer than ever, there are a few things you can do to make sure your pets are safe when the exterminator comes to your home to take care of pest control.
Tell the Exterminator You Have Pets
Before the pest control professional visits your home, it’s always a great idea to mention that you have pets. Most of the pest control techniques used today are very safe for homes that have pets, but it’s a good idea to let the professional exterminator know what pets you have in your home. This way you ensure that safe techniques and products are used so your pet is safe.
Make Sure Pets are Contained During the Visit
Even though pest control is safe for your pets, it’s still important to make sure pets are contained during the exterminator visit.
