What Does Non-Toxic Spray Really Mean?

When you discover that your home has an insect infestation, you want to rid
your home of the pests as quickly as possible, using a non-toxic spray.

What Does Non-Toxic Spray Really Mean?


According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), pesticides are inherently toxic. The
term is in the name; ‘cide’ denotes ‘to kill.’ And when you think about it, it makes perfect sense.
When you use a pesticide, what are you trying to do? Yep, get rid of a pest problem in your
home. Our initial reaction to any infestation is to grab a can of over the counter spray, powder, or
crystal and flood every corner of our homes. But there are dangers when you do not use a non-
toxic spray. The chemicals that are used can be dangerous to you, your family, and your pets.

What Toxins Are in Pest Control Products?

There are a myriad of chemicals that are used in pest control products. See the short list below:

Hydramethylnon is the active ingredient in many ant, roach, and termite insecticides. It attacks
the nervous system of the insect.

Sulfluramid is generally used in baits and gels for ants and roaches. Also attacks the nervous

Hydroprene is another chemical used against roaches and moths. It attacks the developmental
stage of insects.

Pyrethrins are where it gets confusing. Pyrethrins in their natural state are generally safe, made
from the chrysanthemum flower. However, to boost the impact this pesticide has, scientists have
created many synthesized versions. Allethrin, Cyfluthrin, and Resmethrin are just a few
examples. They are used in all forms of pesticide from sprays to foggers to baits. These man-
made enhancements change the composition, making them harmful if not used properly.

How are Toxins Dangerous to Me?

Most sprays and dusts can cause respiratory issues in humans and pets. Remember, they are
designed to deal with the insects that you are spraying. They may also cause skin irritation,
dizziness, and headaches, etc. Depending on your sensitivity to them, medical attention may
need to be sought.

These toxins are especially dangerous to children, those with medical issues, and pets, despite
what warning labels may tell you. It is best always to assume that if a product is meant to dispose of
insects, then it can affect humans in the same manner. The problems arise because of the
inexperience of the user. We want the pest gone, now so we spray and spray until the critters are
dead and gone. Label instructions may matter very little, and through haste we create a
dangerous situation for those in your home.
