Please be sure to read the product label of any insecticide you choose to use to get information on the personal protective safety gear you will need. In most situations, it is recommended that you wear long pants, a long sleeved shirt, closed toe shoes with socks, chemical resistant gloves, and goggles. In areas where ventilation is poor, a manufacturer may recommend you wear a mask or a respirator. We have put together two different safety kits that will make selecting the correct safety gear easier for you.

Perform Regular Treatment Applications

It is important to start your monthly preventative spray applications in early spring and continue one time per month through early fall.

Please see our General Pest Prevention Guide to learn more about general exterior sanitation and preventive spray applications to prevent pest infestations.
