• Avoid using toxic chemicals inside and out. Even when used according to the directions, pesticides can pose health risks. By Federal Law, no one can say pesticides are safe – so don’t be fooled into thinking otherwise.
• Prevent pests through good sanitation and food storage habits, and by preventing their entry structurally.
• Take off your shoes at the door to prevent tracking pesticides indoors. Traces of pesticide residues can cling to the bottoms of your shoes and then rub off on your carpet and rugs.
