Spraying House While Wife Is Pregnant


Any suggestions. We just moved into our new house and it needs to be sprayed. Ants, roaches etc. I am spraying them when she is at work with Home Defense but it doesnt last too long. I wanna get the house sprayed by a professional but I am leary because she is pregnant. On the other hand I wanna get it done before our son is born.... So should she stay at her moms for a few or am I just overeacting?

Mom's to be used to smoke,
drink, and ride in cars with no seat belts.

Good to know Plumberman is taking to the
Dad role (worrying a lot).
If it's a reputable outfit, they should be able
to show you the MSDS sheets and let her
ask the doc....unless you just want some
time away from the hormonal swing dance!

Make sure your Pest Control Company is using Organic Products. ECO smart - ECO PCO products. " Works better then must toxic pesticide chemicals on the market.

Maybe on Mars!!!!!

Sorta like 7th Gennnneration Products. Highly touted by the tree huggin' crowd, but NONE of their soaps do anything toward cleaning. But I would like to bet you use them!!!

I would have to agree, however when you call a professional you can also ask them to use ant gels which will be harmless to anyone pregnant. Endless of course she eats the gel.

Re: Spraying House While Wife Is Pregnant


There are minimum risk pesticides made from plant materials but as far as Eco smart working better I really don't think so. If they did then every bug man on earth would be using them.

Pesticides are not as terrible in the hands of a pro as they are with a homeowner.

check out the precautions that should put your mind at ease so you can call your pro. http://pestcemetery.com/spraying-pregnant-women/

Re: Spraying House While Wife Is Pregnant


There are organic sprays that can be applied. The only difference is that it will need to be re-applied more often depending on the issues.

Re: Spraying House While Wife Is Pregnant


In this situation I would try to use one of the gel baits. The gel is generally put in an area the pest will get to and should not cause problems for any humans or pets. They will take the gel bait back to colony and share and kill off entire community. This is great for ants especially as the ants will take this back to queen and kill the main problem.

Probably not the best idea, but there are organic sprays you can use as others have mentioned.

Hello
Treat the outside. Most ant problems originate from outside. Most all of my treatments nowadays are outside only this is one reason why.

The products we have available here are considered okay to use after the first trimester per label.
