Are indoor pesticides safe for pets?

Household insect pesticides are designed to be applied in low concentrations, generally less than 1 percent. These concentrations are high enough to kill small insects, but they pose no threat to people or pets.

To protect yourself from insect pests on your pet, consult your veterinarian.
