The pesticides we use for general pest control will not harm you or your family if you are in the home while we are treating. It is even ok if you are a pregnant. The only thing we ask is that you, your children and your pets do not come in contact with the insecticide while it is wet. If you do, do not panic. Just rinse items or areas of contact immediately with plenty of water or a slight irritation may occur. However, if you have concerns about kids, pets, or yourself, you may want to leave for 2 to 3 hours.
