How Will Pest Control Chemicals Affect Your Family?

You know you have a pest problem, but you’re worried about exposing your family and pets to harmful chemicals. It’s a common concern and one that needs to be addressed before you hire a pest control or pest management company.

At Stern Environmental Group we are concerned about your family’s health. That’s why we use state-of-the-art low toxicity chemicals that are much less harmful to people, pets and their environments than the products used by most of our competitors. In fact, adults can usually stay home during pest control treatments. Flea and spider treatments do require that you leave the premises for 2 to 3 hours, but just about everything else — roaches, ants, mice, termites, etc. — won’t cause you to miss your favorite TV show. And since our chemicals are usually odorless, you won’t even wrinkle your nose when we visit.

Our children are precious to us so if you have children, we do ask you to leave during treatment and wait 2 to 3 hours before returning. Children are often more susceptible to chemicals than adults. Pets can generally remain home if they are confined to a room that is not being treated until the chemicals dry. Fish tanks just need to be covered.
