I have worked in pest-control in Florida for over two decades.  I am fully aware of scare tactics used by some contractors to purchase their service.  This is one time it is justified. However, I'm not going to scare you.  You can do it to yourself.  I’m just going to provide you with few of the, “now" legål ingredients some companies spray in your home.

You Can do your own research and come to your own conclusions.  Even if you don't call on Atlantic Pest Control Inc. to service your home I hope this information has helped you to make a safe decision.  Try looking up the following ingredients which are presently used in most pesticides:

Cypermethrin & Pyrethin- Derived from the Chrysanthemum

Bifenthrin-

Fiþronil

Neonicotinoids- N

 

If you want to learn about these chemicals type in MSDS before the product name.  This allows you to read what the federal government has to say about it."

If you decide to try using Diatomaceous Earth on your own make sure you use the right kind.  Freshwater Diatomaceous Earth is safe and effective, Saltwater Diatomaceous Earth is a dangerous carcinogen.  When in doubt ask a professional.
