Will these products hurt my pet?

I have a kitten and I am worried about the effects of insecticides on her. Do you have any products to add to the laundry?


All of the products in the Bedbug Kit #3 are safe to use around pets as long as you follow the product labels and the pet is out of the room while you do the actual treatment. Your pet can return to the room as soon as the treated areas are dry. There is no need to add any product to your laundry. Any bedbugs or bedbug eggs will be killed in the dryer. Bedbugs and bedbug eggs will be instantly killed when they are exposed to temperatures over 120 degrees. All household dryers reach temperatures over 120 degrees on any heat cycle.
