Is there such a thing as non-toxic pest control?
What is non-toxic pest control?
“Containing or being poisonous material especially when capable of causing death or serious debilitation”
When you call a pest control company do you want to be told what you want to hear, or do you want to know the facts.
Some pest control companies will tell you “No, our chemicals are non-toxic”
So if we want to apply the above definition and you want to eradicate your cockroaches or spiders, mice, fleas, etc. you may ask them what are they going to use to eradicate your pest issue?
You want us to eradicate your pests, correct?
So, if an insecticide is non-toxic then what they are using?
It has occurred to me that the terms ‘environmentally friendly’, ‘non-toxic’ and ‘safe for pets and children’ are used all the time to secure a sale.
The majority of customers may not understand pest control terminology and many companies play on this by believing that if they tell the customer anything or they tell them what the customer wants to hear it will work because at the time of the call a lot of customers are in a desperate state of mind as they want their pests to disappear ASAP
All pesticides, insecticides, cockroach sprays, dusts are TOXIC!
We use a NIL or VERY LOW ODOUR, (if you are sensitive) LOW MAMILLIAN TOXICITY INSECTICIDE, synthetically made to mimic Natural insecticide like Pyrethrum.
If your pets or children are insects, we will ask you take them out to protect them. Otherwise it is safe to be home during and after the treatment, but please instruct the residents of your home not to lick the walls.
Dogs and cats are mammals so really it should not be a problem. If you have fish, birds or reptiles, please inform us and we will be able to give you the steps which need to be carried out to secure their safety.
