Child and Pet Safety
Wondering if our services are safe? The BBB explicitly does not allow us to state that they are, because any pesticide can be toxic if it gets in the wrong hands. Even if a pest-control product is all-natural, people and pets can still have an allergic reaction to it. Because many pest control companies are only in it for themselves, they’ll tell you what you want to hear. They might claim that their pest control is truly safe. But you should know that they can’t stand behind that claim entirely.
The truth is, all of our products are most likely safe and non-toxic for the majority of homeowners and pets. However, we always ask that you take certain precautions before we arrive. For example, we ask that you please let us know about any ant farms on your property. We also request that you make a plan to keep children and pets out of the treatment area for at least a few hours. While it may feel slightly inconvenient, our focus is to provide quality service with as little risk as possible.
Here are a few examples of how we minimize exposure and limit toxicity:
- We use low-toxicity mineral dusts. Special tools inject the dust into into cracks and crevices, which keeps it out of reach from your family.
- We use ant and roach bait — very little bait is needed to be effective. Since such small amounts are used, the amount of actual pesticide is minuscule. Similar to our mineral dusts, ant and roach bait is applied in cracks and crevices. Alternatively, they can also be secured inside protected stations.
- While we do offer natural pest control, we’ve found that most of our customers aren’t interested in the ongoing service needed to make the natural products effective. Instead, we focus on specially-formulated products require less maintenance, but are still safe. For example, many of our products, such as our spider and bed bug sprays, don’t get absorbed by the skin as easily. They also last an exceptionally long time, so you don’t have to keep spraying!
