How To Keep Your Pets in Brampton Safe During Pest Control?

You are getting your house treated for pest control to get rid of all those nasty pests at your home, and you are keen to make sure that your children are at a safe place when the treatment happens. But what about those cute pets at your house?

Pets need to be taken care of as well when your house is undergoing pest control treatment. However, many people tend to forget about these beautiful creatures. Some of them are not even aware of how it could affect their pets. Generally, pest control treatment is not very harmful to many pets, but some may have adverse effects on their health.

Here are some tips on how to keep your pets safe during pest control treatment.

Speak to the technician

Before the pest treatment, you have to communicate about your pets to the pest control technicians to take special precautions when they start. The technician, who is experienced and has knowledge regarding the safety of the pets, will give you good advice for the protection of your pets. Let him know that you have pets at your house to arrange pet-friendly pest control options and plan the treatment accordingly.

Read the label

If you want to do pest control treatment by yourself, you should read the instructions regarding keeping the pets safe during the treatment.

Send pets outside

Make sure you send your pets outside when you have the pest control treatment, as many pets are curious and tend to inhale things fast. The pesticide stays wet for a couple of hours, so it is good to have your pets in an untreated place. You can bring them out after the pesticide has gone dry. If you have got a fish aquarium, you can cover it with a towel.

If you are obsessed with your pet’s health and safety, you could even send them to a family member’s house or a friend or neighbour’s house and bring them back the next day to ensure the pesticide has completely dried.

Place the insect baits at the right place.

When you use the insect baits to trap the unwanted creatures, you have to ensure that it is not a place where your pets can reach. It would help if you always put it in those very compact places, and there is no chance for your cats, dogs, or any other pet to reach that area.

Remove the Feeding bowls or Food.

Wherever there is a feeding bowl or feed, and your pet used to eat it from there, remove them from that place and then place it in a container that can be sealed. Secondly, any of your pets toy needs to be removed, as there is a chance of pesticides being sprayed on them.

The Take-away

The techniques described above are all you need to keep your pets safe from getting into contact with the pesticide.

Keeping your pets safe is essential, but even after following all those steps mentioned above, if you still find out that your pets have inhaled the pesticide, then you need to take it to the veterinarian immediately.
