What indoor/outdoor system, kit, pesticide would you recommend for use around pets?
We have seen sugar ants, carpenter ants, and small spiders inside the home, as well as a few roaches in the garage.
We would recommend using Phantom for both and and roach control. Phantom is a popular choice for ants and cockroaches because it can be used in conjunction with baiting. For general pest control indoors, applications should be made to breeding areas, nesting sites, hiding places, runways, and other places where pests are found or likely to infest. Use 3 oz of Phantom per gallon of water for crack and crevice or spot applications. Limited spot treatment of Phantom dilution can be made to surfaces beneath cabinets, spaces between equipment or expansion joints, surfaces behind sinks, lockers, water pipes, cabinets, or other areas where cockroaches may hide. Do not apply more than once every four weeks. For Spider control we would recommend using Trapper LTD Mouse Insect Glueboards to catch spiders along with a spider web deterrent such as Web Out. Web Out kills spiders and prevents spider webs on any surface that may support spider web development. This product can also be used as a contact pesticide to kill ants, crickets, mosquitoes, cockroaches, perimeter pest insects and other general pests.
