You never think it can happen to your home — until it does. Surprisingly, cockroaches are one of the most common household pests in the world. If you have cockroaches, and pets to worry about, finding a pet safe solution to eliminate cockroaches from your home is essential.
According to the ASPCA, every year thousands of pets suffer and many die due to accidental ingestion of household poisons, including insecticides. For these reasons, it’s important to find a pet safe roach killer.
Are There Roach Poisons Safe for Pets?
From traps to sprays and chemicals, there are many different elimination methods for getting rid of roaches, however, many of them are incredibly harmful or toxic to your cats and dogs.
You may think that since adhesive traps are one of the least toxic solutions for killing cockroaches that it would be a great choice for pet owners – but think again. Adhesive traps are extremely painful to your pets. If your cat or dog gets stuck in one of those sticky traps, you’d need a strong solvent to get them out. You may even need to visit a Veterinarian to get the trap professionally removed!
Another popular elimination method for cockroaches is the use of boric acid. However, boric acid is especially harmful to your pets when ingested, so you won’t want to use this chemical if you have pets or children in your home. Diatomaceous Earth is another chemical that is frequently recommended to kill cockroaches, and although it is food-grade and safe for pets, it can irritate your lungs when inhaled, as well as your pets’.
Additionally, these methods won’t work well if the cockroaches have infested the walls of your home. In this case, a more intense treatment may be necessary.
