Pest Control

Pet-Friendly Pest Control Concerns

Our pets are family. They offer limitless joy and acceptance, which is why we are concerned for their health and safety and why many pet owners have questions about the potential dangers of pest control techniques. Certain pesticides can be harmful to pets, which makes it important to look for a pest control company that is pet-friendly. With that in mind, here are a few tips to help you find the right pest company for you and your pets.

As you research different companies and browse through their websites, look for any mention of “integrated pest management.” This is a specific approach to pest control that focuses on using common sense and environmentally friendly techniques. Instead of relying solely on pesticides, integrated pest management puts an emphasis on pest prevention and only uses pesticides when absolutely necessary. 

Integrated pest management is a practice that started gaining traction about 30 years ago and has since become a part of mainstream pest control. Companies that are well-versed in the latest techniques should offer these services. You can even look for certifications from governing bodies like the Integrated Pest Management Institute of America.

Another sure sign that you are working with a pet-friendly company is if they immediately ask about any pets on the premises. This should be one of their early questions if not the first thing they ask before giving you a quote or beginning treatment.  

Focus on Long-Term Prevention

As briefly mentioned above, pet-friendly pest control is all about prevention in both the short and long term. There are plenty of things you and your pest control technician can do to prevent pests from entering your home in the first place. These tasks should be the top priority rather than simply spraying the entire home and yard after an infestation has already occurred. In addition, the right pest control company will help you set up a regular plan to help keep pests away as the seasons change and new challenges arise.

At PMi Pest Management, we understand how important pets are to our clients and we make them a priority in all our pest control practices. We also practice integrated pest management for a smarter approach to protecting your home. Call us today to learn more about our pest control services.
