Safety should always be of paramount concern when using any type of insecticide in or around the home. That said, it’s good to know that Combat products are specifically designed to target ants and roaches, while at the same time have been shown to have a low order of toxicity in animals such as household pets. Although it is unlikely that a pet would experience adverse effects if small amounts of Combat baits or gels were ingested, it is recommended that every precaution be taken to protect your furry companions.
Four Quick Tips for Pet Safety
- Read all instructions carefully and always use Combat strictly as directed. Do not use more than the recommended amount, and be sure to follow all safety precautions. By using as directed, you can keep your pets safe.
- Be careful not to place Combat baits or gels near pet cages or near your pets’ food and water bowls. Avoid allowing pets easy access to the baits and gels while they’re in use.
- Be sure to keep Combat baits and gels in their original packaging and do not pry open the bait stations.
- Always store Combat baits and gels in a safe place where pets and children can’t reach them. This may be in a locked cabinet or garage.
