Q&A Home

Erin writes,

Would it be safe to put a nuvan strip inside of a rubbermaid storage container (the 50 gal), tape the seams of the container, and then place it inside of our bedroom closet?

We keep the door to the closet closed since our clothes aren't in there anymore. Should we tape around the closet door as well as the tote, or just move the container to the basement? We have a pet that lives full time in our room, and I want to be sure that nothing we do to get rid ourselves of these pests will harm her.


You can indeed safely use the Nuvan strips in the rubbermaid container the way you described without any issues for your pet or yourself.
