Before We Begin Your Sarasota Pest Control Treatment, We Need to Know a Few Things

Are There Any Pets in Your Home?

Having pets should be the first thing you tell your Sarasota Exterminator when they arrive. Pets and small children are typically more sensitive to pesticides and knowing where they are and getting them out of the treatment areas while working is paramount to keeping them safe. Although most products nowadays are pet friendly, some pest control companies are still using old technologies and calling them “organic”. These smelly products may pose a risk to sensitive animals.

Johnny Bugs Pest Control is known for being pet-friendly. We take the time to assess your infestation and choose the least toxic means to eradicate them. If you have pets in the home when we arrive, we will provide instructions as to what to do and how long to keep them out of the treatment zones.

Organic Pest Control Treatments Use Old Technologies that Smell Bad

Do you think you have a pesticide sensitivity? Have you been lured in to the Organic Pest Control false narrative? Did you know that most of these products use very smelly repellent technologies that may not even stop an infestation? I prefer not to go back to the seventies when choosing products. Most people who claim pesticide sensitivities are actually just very sensitive to strong odors. I highly recommend not allowing a company to use a product that will smell like patchouli all day after they leave. Besides, most of today’s professional products carry the same level of risk as window cleaner or other household cleaning agents. Diatomaceous Earth will kill bugs but is also a sever respiratory irritant. I wouldn’t use it in my own house because it makes an awful mess and will expose you to dust particles that will be inhaled and potentially damage your lungs. Don’t believe the media hype about professional pesticides. Most stories refer to products we haven’t used in residential houses for many years (Like Organophosphates)

Do You Have Small Children in the House and if so, Where?

A household exterminator will work their way around the entire inside of the house looking for areas that potentially house or harbor known Florida pests. These places include door thresholds, around plumbing penetrations, and under appliances that use water. Bedrooms seldom need any treatments, especially children’s rooms. Keeping indoor exposure levels to a minimum is paramount to conducting safe pest control applications. Unless there is a serious infestation present, pest control exterminators should steer clear of children’s rooms.
