On my other forum a members dog got into some rat poison. They had it put up where they thought he would never get it, but he managed. They immediately called an e-vet, induced vomiting, and he was treated and is recovering. But I have heard of a lot of people over the years having the same thing happen and the results weren't always good.

I decided to start a thread over there with a listing of pest removers or killers that are not harmful to pet dogs and cats but that are effective. Thought I'd do the same here. Maybe even get both threads stickied once all the info is gathered.

For ants I use cayenne pepper sprinkled around the outside of my house. Has worked great so far.

Beetles and things, including fleas, Diatomaceous Earth works well and is pet safe.

For bees, regular flies, and fruit flies I make traps instead of spraying. Fill a 2 litre bottle or something similar part way with water and honey or sugar. The flies either drown or I wait til there are a few in there and cap it real fast to be thrown away. Then I replace it with a new bottle.

That's all I have personal experience with, everyone feel free to post whats worked for you!

Oh, and be careful with gum and candy containing Xylitol. Usually found in sugar free candies and gums, it is toxic to dogs. One piece can kill a 50lb dog.

My pup Renee got into a container of Ice Breakers gum (contains Xylitol) once and I called the vet as soon as I saw her with it. They had me check the ingredients and told me about Xylitol being toxic. I was terrified. Since it was less than 30 minutes between ingestion and the call, I was told to include vomiting and bring her in if she started acting funny. She puked up every piece and was fine. Whew!
Great Post thanks

Syrup of ipecac (/ˈɪpɪkæk/), commonly referred to as ipecac,
is a drug that was once widely used as an expectorant (in low doses)
and a rapid-acting emetic (in higher doses).
It is obtained from the dried rhizome and roots of
Carapichea ipecacuanha from which it derives its name.

People on the other forum have offered up live traps and glue traps for rodents.

One lady had bedbugs and used diatomaceous earth (food grade, not pool grade) sprinkled around the house and car as well as putting vasoline in bowls under her beds legs.

One uses bay leaves for ants.

Someone else said for fruit and regular flies they use Apple Cider Vinegar with a touch of dawn dish soap. She says the soap breaks surface tension on the water and the flies drown faster.

Another says she used those sonic noise makers for rodents and the resident rodents moved out.

Another member says he uses peppermint and clove spray mixed with fly spray for horses and dogs he gets from the feed store. And that cedar chips outdoors helps a lot with various insects.
Peoples need to identify the difference between remedies by people or advise by a Vet.
Secondly all those threads I think needs a notice that consult your Vet before trying anything. It should be responsibility of a poster to say that as well.

In fairness, the thread is about pet safe pest control, I'm not sure people will be ringing their vet to check whether cayenne pepper to discourage ants will harm their pet.

And @PanchoVilla, English is our primary language, please could you translate?

I am sorry Super Mod for being off topic, I was just talking about a thing that people don't need to follow advices if they are not from a verified source. On same thing I said that if anyone post wrong details, they need to quote that its not from a verified source.

Well this is dog forum so I will only share here about the same. You are right people will read it, they will make a solutions and start spraying for pests. But this can go wrong as well most of the dogs are allergic to it and it will irritate their eyes, nose and throat. So any advice which is not proper or even proper if not explained well or executed well can be harmful.

Thanks for questioning my qualifications. I had doctorate in veterinary medicine. But yes I am both driver as well as a vet.

Yes I do agree that website have these lines about following or not following advice are personal choice. I think thats what your faulty Spanish means. Yes you are and forum is right. But still people will follow them and 90% even will not go to declaimer page. I am not saying forum or peoples who post are responsible for that, but that would be a good will if anyone do post like that.

Thanks!
