Pet Friendly Pest Control PerthFleas and ticks, spiders, mosquitoes and other pests can be dangerous for domestic pets, so regular pest inspections and treatments are important for keeping your furry friends safe.
Unfortunately, most pesticides don't discriminate their targets and can also be hazardous for dogs, cats and other animals that are exposed to poisons. That's why it's so important to choose a pest control service that understand pets and will do everything it takes to keep them safe.
Here are the 4 steps to finding pet-friendly pest control in Perth.
1. Tell your pest control service about your pets
Whether you're arranging an annual inspection of your property or hiring pest control to eradicate a specific infestation, make sure they know about all pets you have in your home so they can take appropriate precautions.
An experienced company will have no trouble tailoring your service around the needs of different animals. They can also advise you about what to do with your pets during and after their visit.
2. Ask what pest control methods they use
Don't hesitate to ask about specific products and services so they can put your mind at ease. Pet-safe pest control treatments include chemical-free pesticides and tamper-proof bait stations that keep curious animals out.
You can also check whether their treatments are approved for use in residential homes and that they meet current health and safety rules and Australian Standards.
3. Prepare your home
Even a carefully designed pest control plan can go wrong if your pets go where they're not supposed to. Make sure they're kept safe from harm by removing them from the home or containing them in a safe area that isn't being treated.
If your pets can't be moved easily – for example, they live in a cage, tank or pond – ask your pest controllers what steps can be taken to protect them from exposure. This could be as simple as laying a blanket over the top to protect birds and fish from airborne particles.
Depending on the type of treatment that's being used, your pets may be able to return to the area soon afterwards or not for 24 hours or more. You should also remove or cover their bedding and food and drink bowls and clean these thoroughly before they're used again.
4. Check their company background
When you're looking into local companies, check that their agents are licensed, accredited and qualified in the services they provide and that they are insured to provide residential pest control. You can also look for reviews and testimonials from satisfied customers.
