Frequently asked questions
How safe is Pestie around kids and pets?
Getting rid of bugs is important, but it’s not worth declaring nuclear warfare on your home. Pestie’s pesticide is sourced from and used by the some of the best pest control companies in the world, and has been used in hospitals, schools, and more. It is fully registered with the EPA.
As with any pesticide application, certain safety measures need to be followed while applying. For example, pets and children should not come in contact with treated areas until the pesticide has fully dried. A complete set of safety measures and instructions are included with each Pestie kit.
With Pestie, you get the same pest control that high-end pro pest control companies use, but since we skip the middlemen, salespeople, and applicators, you get it for a fraction of the price.
What ingredients are used in Pestie?
Pestie comes with a state-of-the-art lambda-cyhalothrin-based pyrethroid insecticide inspired by the natural defenses of chrysanthemum flowers. Millions of micro-capsules are formed around the active ingredient, which adhere to insect’s waxy cuticles and provide protection against the elements. The capsules are formed in different sizes to give both fast, effective insect knockdown and long-lasting results. It’s serious pest control science.
Can Pestie be sprayed indoors?
For most of our customers, we recommend only an outdoor barrier sprayed around the home per the Pestie instructions. This is extremely effective at getting rid of pests inside your home in most cases.
In rare cases where it's necessary to spray indoors as well, Pestie can be safely applied using a light spray while taking additional precautions such as moving any human or pet food and waiting for the product to dry completely before any contact. Only a light spray is needed.
Before spraying indoors, you should read the included label for full safety information. If you have any questions about whether or not you should spray indoors, our team is available to help. Contact us at [email protected]

How is Pestie better than store-bought pest control?
Pestie is different from store-bought pest control in several ways:
- The active ingredients in Pestie are higher quality, longer-lasting, far less diluted, and more potent than what you can buy at the hardware store. Pestie uses a state-of-the-art lambda-cyhalothrin-based pyrethroid insecticide inspired by the natural defenses of chrysanthemum flowers and proven to be ultra-effective against hundreds of species of insects, including all common household pests.
- Pestie is longer-lasting and more durable than nearly all pesticides you can find at your hardware store. This is done by micro-encapsulating the active ingredients, protecting them in individual capsules that release the pesticide over time and protect against rain, UV damage, and harsh heat.
- Pestie’s microscopic capsules stick to the waxy cuticle of insects, which helps transmit the insecticide directly into the bug more quickly and effectively.
All of these factors combine to make Pestie far more effective and longer-lasting than store-bought pest control. It’s some serious pest control science.
Why does Pestie cost so much less than a traditional pest control company?
It’s simple: salesmen and technicians. Traditional pest control companies have to pay for salesman commissions. Some of the largest pest control companies pay their salesmen upwards of 50% of the contract value! After paying their salesmen, they pay for technicians salaries, trucks, and equipment. When you buy Pestie, you bypass all of the middlemen and pocket the savings.
What safety measures/PPE should I use while applying Pestie?
As with any pesticide, certain safety procedures need to be followed during application. Included with your Pestie kit is a full set of instructions on how to safely apply Pestie. As outlined in the instructions, when applying you should take standard pesticide application precautions such as wearing gloves (included with your kit), wearing long sleeved shirts and pants, and wearing closed-toed shoes. Be sure to read and follow the included instructions for complete safety information.
Can I spray Pestie on plants?
Pestie is safe to spray on household trees, bushes, flowers, and grass. However, it should not be sprayed on any vegetables, fruits, or edibles.
