Your pet is an important member of your family. While residential pest control is essential to keep your home free of unwanted guests, your pest control service shouldn’t pose a threat to your pet’s health. Your Tucson exterminator will be happy to work with you to ensure your pet is safe, healthy, and happy during and after every pest control treatment.
Talk to Your Exterminator
The most important thing you can do for your pet’s safety before a pest control treatment is talk to your exterminator. Let him know that you have a pet and ask about your options, including green and pet-friendly pest control chemicals for a safer treatment solution inside your home or in outdoor areas where your pet frequents. Your exterminator will let you know if any treatments could affect your pet, as well as where they will be used and how long you should keep your pet away from affected areas.
Keep Your Pet Contained
Pets have a tendency to act unexpectedly, especially if they are curious or frightened. You can protect your pet during pest control visits by keeping him contained in a single room and letting your pest control specialist know where your pet is located. If the room your pet is in needs treatment, you can move your pet while your exterminator waits elsewhere to ensure your pet doesn’t accidentally come into contact with any chemicals or equipment out of curiosity. You should also remove and cover any pet food and water bowls during pest control treatment; although your exterminator will take extreme care, it’s best to keep your pet’s belongings out of the way for added safety.
