Is Yard Mosquito Treatment Safe For My Pets? What to Know

3 MINUTE READ

If you have one of those dogs who finds every stray stick, squirrel, and weird-looking bug in the yard, you probably don’t want one more thing to worry about, right?

Mosquitoes have a way of spoiling everybody’s backyard fun -- including Champ’s. But when it comes to getting rid of mosquitoes, you have to wonder: Should you use yard mosquito spray if you have pets?

Stop swatting and let’s take a look.

First, How Does Yard Mosquito Spray Work?

We can’t speak for all the mosquito spraying companies in Minneapolis and Eau Claire, but at RainMaster we spray the perimeter of your yard, hitting the spots where mosquitoes lurk and breed:

  • Underneath plant leaves
  • Shady areas
  • Wet areas
  • Under decks
  • Under tree canopies
  • Wood piles

Then, bam, immediate results. No swatting required.

Bonus: the barrier spray kills ticks, too. Kill two pests for one price.

Is Yard Mosquito Treatment Safe for Pets?

Not if you have mosquitoes as pets. (That would be weird, right?) But if dogs or cats are your family pets, yes.

Keep your pets inside when specialists are in your yard spraying, and while the treatment areas are still wet. (Yes, we know your dog will be barking his head off at the windows, trying to scare away that stranger with the tank and hose. Intruder! Intruder!)

It Kills Ticks, Too, But…

While RainMaster’s mosquito treatment also kills ticks, it’s not a replacement for the tick treatments your veterinarian recommends for your dog. Keep using whatever method is prescribed for your furry friends. But the pet safe yard mosquito spray will definitely reduce the number of ticks in your yard that could hop aboard your unsuspecting pet.
