Q&A Home

Amanda writes,

I have a multitude of problems with bugs in my home. What is the best way to safely exterminate them?

I have found spiders, silverfish, centipedes, milipedes, ants, etc. in my home and want to accomplish safe extermination. I think it would be best to do outside as well as inside pest control but I am concerned about the safety of my dog. What product(s) would you recommend to accomplish pest control but also be safe for my pet and myself?


Talstar P (Talstar One) is one of our best sellers for all around pest control. Talstar kills over 75 insect pests and can be used for indoor pest control, outdoor pest control, has a long residual, so it keeps on killing pests for over three months after you've sprayed it, is odorless, dries clear, leaves no stains, is non-irritating to the skin, won't break down easily with rainfall and is safe to use around pets. Be sure animals are out of the area while Talstar is being applied and then they can return as soon as the area is dry.
