Home > Blogs > Pest Control > Is Pest Control Safe? Everything You Need To Know

No one needs unwanted pesky pests such as ants, cockroaches, bugs, spiders, rodents, termites, and other unexpected insects in their house or working space. That is why most homeowners and business owners go for frequent pest control treatment by professionals. However, if you are planning to get pest control done for the first time or have been contemplating the safety of this pest elimination procedure then keep reading. We understand that nobody wants to expose their family, pets, and themselves to harmful chemicals. The most common questions we are asked as Adelaide pest controllers are about the safety of our methods and pest treatment chemicals. Understandably, homeowners want to know more about the security and safety of the chemicals we use in our work and if they can cause any harm or damage to their homes and family. It is indeed a very pertinent and important question you need reassurance about.

With the latest in pest management and eradication procedures, pest control experts are now able to provide targeted applications to pest problems. This way a pest controller can minimise the potential of any harm done to adults, children or pets coming into contact with any pesticide products used.  However, if you still have concerns we suggest you follow these simple precautions:

1. Inform your pest controller: let your Adelaide pest control service know if you have children, pets or aged people in the house. At Southern Suburbs Pest Control, we are committed to only using the safest techniques and treatment preparations available today. Do mention your concerns about your children and pests to the pest control technician and discuss your expectations of the proposed treatment as well. 


2. Request more information: do not hesitate to find out about the material safety data sheet of the pesticides being used inside or outside your property. It is good to be fully aware and educate yourself on all the aspects of the pest control procedure. Ask questions and request additional information if it is confusing to you. 

3. Get your doctor’s advice: if you are pregnant, have any health concerns or have a newborn baby, it is always a good idea to consult your doctor or vet for advice. Sometimes the risk of illness from an untreated pest infestation is greater than the risk from exposure to pesticides. For complete peace of mind, it’s recommended to reach out to your healthcare professional for advice and to get answers to your questions or concerns. 


4. Best to stay away: for greater safety, most people are comfortable taking their pets or kids out of the house during the pest control treatment. You would also notice that your pest controller would be wearing protective clothing during the procedure, but you or your pets don’t have the same. As a part of the safe pest control process, it is recommended for inhabitants or office staff to stay outside while the procedure is being carried out.
