Are Pest Control Chemicals Safe?

Pest Control Tech treating the yard

Pest control technicians spend every workday using various methods to eradicate pests from the inside and outside of your home. Frequently, pest control requires the use of chemicals to get the job done the right way. If you have tried to rid your home of insects in the past on your own, you have probably looked at home chemical sprays and noticed that nearly all of them carry some pretty intimidating warning labels. 

This is why it is best to leave this job to the professionals, especially if you are facing a more serious infestation. Pest control technicians are trained professionals. They understand the benefits of various chemical control methods while weighing them against the risks of the chemicals making them up. These technicians are highly trained in all safety procedures and application guidelines surrounding any powders and solutions they may use.

Most pesticides are considered to be safe when they are used within the application guidelines specified. Additionally, to ensure this safety, pesticides are regularly and thoroughly tested by agencies such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), especially for new formulations being brought to the market. These regulations are adjusted based on application usage protocols such as residential, commercial, interior, and exterior.
