What are the effects of MGK products?
Pesticides are designed to be toxic to target organisms such as ants, roaches, spiders, flies and mosquitoes. All MGK products undergo rigorous and extensive studies to determine their level of toxicity to mammals, and their effect on the environment. The EPA approves pesticides for use only if it determines that the pesticide will not cause unreasonable adverse effects to the environment, including people.
For questions or concerns about specific health issues of humans or pets or potential adverse effects from actives or inert ingredients please read the label and Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS). If you used one of our products and are concerned that it may have harmed you, another person or a pet, call Safety Call at 1-888-740-8712. This is a free call. If you believe a person or pet has been harmed by exposure to a pesticide contact your physician or veterinarian and get appropriate treatment. Bring the product or a copy of the label with you for reference. The physician or veterinarian may also call Safety Call for information on the product.
Do I need to wear protective equipment when using your products?

Will our products stain my furniture or carpet?
Many MGK professional products are water-based and are not expected to stain water-safe fabrics. Look at the label and determine if the product is water based. Then, we strongly encourage you to test furniture or fabrics in an inconspicuous area to ensure there is no staining.
Do your inerts contain leavening?
How long does it take for your product to dry?
There is no set time for which a product will dry. It could take minutes or hours. How fast a product will dry will depend on the environmental conditions of the structure such as heat, cold or humidity as well as airflow throughout the structure. To ensure that a product is dry, take a paper towel and apply it to the treated surface. If the towel is dry the surface is dry.
