    Q
    How do we use Bonide Spider Killer RTU around our pets?
    We have a large back porch that we use for cooking, relaxing, and have 2 dogs and 2 cats and LOTS of spiders. If I spray around the door to the house to get them when they come in, what's to keep it from harming my pets when they walk through the residual?
    A

    Pets should be out of the area during the application of Bonide Spider Killer RTU and kept out until the area is dry.  Once dry the small amount of product left behind is only enough to harm a small insect and will not harm pets.
