Are the Chemicals Used in Pest Control Safe for My Family?

Nashville, Murfreesboro and Mt. Juliet TN

Today’s pest control products are far superior than in years past, and are safer for people and the environment. Pesticides for household insects are designed to be applied at low concentrations and are usually designed for particular application methods and specific sites in the house. We also have an entire line of bait products that include baits for termites, ants and roaches. Additionally, pesticides are tested extensively for adverse effects on health.

Before a product can be used, numerous studies are conducted by the manufacturer and independently evaluated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Based on the current body of knowledge, registered pesticides pose no significant hazard to humans, pets or the environment when applied according to label directions. Most of the newer liquid products have essentially no odor. However, no product is 100% safe; including many products used by homeowners in and around homes every day. Despite the negligible health risk from a properly performed pesticide treatment by a certified professional, people with lingering health concerns should consult their physician. Homeowners who are still apprehensive may want to consider having their home treated with baits.
