Always Ask About Pesticides!


March 4, 2019  |   Uncategorized    

 

There are so many things out there for us to be afraid of now… The pesticides your pest control company uses shouldn’t be one of them. Currently, the amount of ‘banned’ or ‘severely restricted’ pesticides out there amounts to about 65 different chemicals! Which is truly scary when you think about it. So, here’s the real question many people are afraid to ask: How can you know that the company you’re using is being 100% truthful about the pesticide they spray throughout your home? Here are a few questions you could ask for some peace of mind. If any of the answers don’t check these boxes, then you should call around to find a new pest control company, then ask these same questions!

  • Is your pesticide environmentally friendly?
    • Answer should be: Yes.
  • Are the chemicals you use petroleum based?
    • Answer should be: No.
  • Are the chemicals you use water soluble and water based?
    • Answer should be: Yes & Yes.
  • Are there any known Carcinogens in the chemicals you use?
    • Answer should be: No
  • Are the chemicals you use pet and child-friendly?
    • Answer should be: Yes.

If the company you’re speaking with has trouble answering these, or simply says, “I don’t know…” Your best bet would be not to use them. Using one of those 65 different banned or restricted chemicals could result in serious health issues and even death.
