I have 4 cats and 1 dog. My Mother is on oxygen 24/7, will the Niban granules injure them in anyway?

My Mother is on oxygen 24/7, I have 4 cats, and 1 dog. Will it harm my pets if they ingest the granules? Also, will the granules kill the female & the egg sack she is carrying? I have an infestation of German Cockroaches, severe, and have Orkin coming out to put the gel out, but, they seem to keep coming out. I have been cleaning a lot of "stuff" out of my house that would give them a place to hide a breed. Also, are the granules good for killing fire ants? I have them in my front yard and nothing seems to work on them, except gasoline, which I refuse to use. I would appreciate any help you can give me. Thank you in advance.


The Niban Granules are very safe and should cause no issues with your pets, as long as you apply them correctly.  The niban granules are no stronger than anything Orkin has placed out in your home.  Of course you would not want to leave the Niban Granules out in the open where your pets could get into the container.  You should apply the Niban Granules underneath and behind appliances, in wall voids, and other places that your pets cannot gain access to.  It will not kill the egg sack, only the roaches that eat the granules.  Niban is not labeled for fire ants.  For fire ants we would recommend our most popular product which is Extinguish Plus Fire Ant Bait.
