How Safe Are Modern Pest Control Solutions?

Safety is important to us here at Adapt Pest Management. We are committed to providing only the safest, most effective pest control solutions possible, in order to protect your family without any long term harm. Luckily, the vast majority of modern pest control is safer than ever before.

Modern pest control sprays are typically made with a variety of active ingredients that are designed to target specific pests. Some common active ingredients found in pest control sprays include:

  • Pyrethrins
  • Pyrethroids
  • Neonicotinoids
  • Desiccants.

Pyrethrins and pyrethroids are synthetic compounds that are derived from the chrysanthemum flower. They are commonly used to control a wide variety of pests, including insects, mites, and ticks. They work by disrupting the nervous system of the pests, causing paralysis and death.

Neonicotinoids are a class of insecticides that are derived from nicotine. They work by disrupting the nervous system of insects, causing paralysis and death. They are commonly used to control pests such as ants, bed bugs, and cockroaches.

Desiccants are a type of pesticide that works by dehydrating pests. They are commonly used to control pests such as mites and beetles.

All of these products are derived from natural sources that humans come into contact with every day. They are also not “instant kill” pesticides anymore, which were considered more harmful, and instead are designed to take advantage of natural pest extermination.
