If you have pets, you know that they’re part of the family. And just like any other family member, you want to keep them safe and healthy. Unfortunately, that can be a challenge when it comes time for pest control treatments. Here are a few tips to help you keep your furry (and not so furry) pet safe during pest control treatments.

1. Keep Your Pets Out of the Way

This one might seem obvious, but it’s important to make sure that your pets are out of the way when the pest control technician arrives. Not only will this allow the technician to do their job more quickly and efficiently, but it will also help to keep your pets safe. If possible, put them in a room that is away from the area that is being treated and make sure that they can’t get out.

If you’re not working or otherwise committed during treatment hours, this could be a great opportunity to plan a day trip with your pet. This can be cheaper than boarding, and create some fun bonding experiences.

2. Keep Them Away from the Treatment Area

Once the treatment area has been treated, it’s important to keep your pets away from it until it is dry. This usually takes about two hours, but it can vary depending on the product that is being used. Once the area is dry, vacuum it up to make sure that all of the product is gone, and then you can let your pets back in. Wash all soft surfaces your pet uses frequently. This includes beds, blankets, and any toys they frequently play with.

3. Talk to Your Vet About Any Concerns You Might Have

If you have any concerns about pest control treatments and how they might affect your pet, be sure to talk to your vet. They will be able to give you specific advice based on your pet’s health and any medications they may be taking.

4. Keep an Eye on Them for a Few Days

After the treatment, it’s important to keep an eye on your pet for a few days. This is just to make sure that they don’t have any adverse reactions to the treatment. If you notice anything unusual, be sure to contact your vet right away.
