Protecting Your Pets During and After Ant Treatments

  • Keep pets away from treated areas until safe.
  • Place baits and traps so that they are inaccessible to pets.
  • Monitor pets for any signs of discomfort or abnormalities.
  • Contact a veterinarian immediately if adverse effects are noticed.
