It depends upon the kind of pest control treatment being given. All pesticides are harmful. But chemicals used at home by reputed Pest Control Professional are tested and proven for home use.

Secondly, targeted delivery at the right place and the correct dose makes all the difference. Reputed Pest Control Professional take precaution to ensure the safety of humans and domestic pets.
