Is Pest Control Safe For Pets?
Let's drill into this topic a little deeper. Your licensed pest professional will apply a liquid barrier around your home and granular treatments in your landscaping and yard. These products are carefully selected and used according to all manufacturer's guidelines. If you have a pet, your service provider will be sure to use appropriate products.
Tips To Keep Your Pets Safe During Your Pest Control Treatment
Often, liquid barrier treatments are not safe for your pet until they are dry. We recommend keeping your pet inside while your technician applies control products around your home and letting them out thirty minutes after your service visit. If you take these two steps, your dog or cat will have no issues.
The Do's And Don'ts Of Home Pest Control
If you're considering doing your own pest control, we recommend using all-natural pest management methods. In many cases, these methods provide all that's needed, and there is no concern about improper pest control usage.
Here are some suggestions.
- Remove spider webs and dispose of egg sacs to reduce spider populations.
Keep your garbage in covered containers, get your receptacles to the curb weekly, and deodorize them if your trash sits for a week.
Remove weeds and clean your gutters out to reduce moisture that attracts pests.
Replace exterior white lights with yellow lights. Insects are unable to detect yellow light.
Collect fruits and nuts that fall to the ground and store them well away from your exterior.
Pick up dead branches and store them in a plastic bin until you can remove them or burn them.
Rake leaves and use a leaf blower to get leaves out of your landscaping and out from under exterior structures.
Use a caulking gun to seal gaps and cracks around pipes, wire conduits, and other foundation penetrations.
Make sure your weatherstripping and door sweeps create a good seal around exterior doors.
Replace damaged screens.
Move bird feeders away from your exterior. Seeds and sugar water are highly-attractive to pests.
Take these steps to reduce pest activity and create physical barriers. If you don't mind rolling your sleeves up, you'll find this to be a great way to manage pests. If you don't have the time, energy, or inclination, keep us in mind. The service team at Keller's Pest Control can provide the protection you need.
