RESCUE! Animal Product Safety Information

 

This is a general resource for animal owners regarding our products. It is not intended to be a substitute for and should not be relied upon in lieu of the advice of a licensed veterinarian.

Our products are not designed for animal use. Our products contain plastic parts, which can be harmful if chewed or swallowed. Pets and other animals should not be allowed to chew, eat, or play with any of our products.

We use RESCUE! products in our own homes, around our animals and our families – and most of our products use ingredients that are non-toxic. Below, you can find more information about the active ingredients in our products and other helpful information.

Because we know that feeling of rising panic that comes on when your animal swallows something, we have a free resource available to you if your animal has possibly eaten or come in contact with a RESCUE! product.

Call anytime to Speak with a Veterinarian or Medical Professional:

1-866-767-5077

 

Rocky Mountain Poison and Drug Safety Hotline, Denver, CO, Open 24 Hours per Day, 365 Days per Year

 

Calling this hotline is free to animal owners. There may be a brief waiting period, but a LIVE professional will answer your call.

The number provided is only free for US and Canadian consumers. Animal owners from other countries should consult with a veterinarian.  If consumers outside the US or Canada call the above number, they may not be answered and if answered will be charged fees & costs by the hotline.

In our experience, animal contact with our products, including situations where our products have been swallowed by animals, are not serious enough to require veterinary intervention. Depending upon the product, the animal, and the amount consumed, digestion of our products may cause discomfort and, at times, vomiting and diarrhea. But the animal typically recovers quickly and fully. It is smart to continue to monitor the animal for several days to ensure they are okay, while keeping the animal comfortable and well hydrated. Nevertheless, we strongly encourage you to contact the free hotline if you have any concerns about your animal’s contact with RESCUE! products.

Helpful Information:

Our Fly Traps do not use any killing agents or poisons. They rely on luring flies with food and feed-grade ingredients, then trapping the flies until they expire on their own.

Hanging traps out of reach of animals is a good way to prevent them from getting into the trap. If your animal has ingested part of a fly trap and you are concerned for their health, refer to the hotline stated above.

If a trap is spilled or dropped, we recommend enzyme-based cleaners to remove the odor. Do not add water or liquid to dry powder attractant that has spilled, as that will activate its odors. If dry powder attractant is spilled, sweep it into trash to dispose.

Helpful Information:

Our WHY Traps do not use any killing agents or poisons. The product relies on luring the pest insects to the trap where they cannot get back out. Eventually, the trapped insects will expire on their own.

The heptyl butyrate and the butanol can be strong eye irritants and mild skin irritants.  If there is eye or skin contact, then wash thoroughly with clean water and if irritation persists then see a doctor.

The lures we use are very powerful at attracting insects. If the liquid is spilled, wash thoroughly with dish soap or another degreaser type soap. Make sure any trapped insects are dead before handling and rebaiting the trap. Do not get this in your eyes or skin, it could be painful.

Spider Traps:

Keep Out of Reach of Children

Helpful Information:

Our Spider Traps have a glue dot pattern which allows more spiders to be caught before it is time to replace it. The decorative plastic shield protects animals from having easy access to the glue dots. However, if you or an animal happen to come in contact with the glue, gently pull the trap away and the adhesive will release. Use petroleum jelly, baby oil, mineral oil, or another petroleum-based product to remove any adhesive residue.

TrapStiks:

Keep Out of Reach of Children

Helpful Information:

These traps do not use poisons or killing agents to kill insects.  Instead, they rely on a highly effective visual lure (the pixelated pattern on the cardboard surface overlaid with glue) to attract the insect to the glue surface. If you or an animal come in contact with the glue, gently pull TrapStik away and the adhesive will release. Use petroleum jelly, baby oil, mineral oil, or another petroleum-based product to remove any adhesive residue.

If the glue comes in contact with clothing or fabric, we recommend these stain removal tips.

We highly recommend using the supplied bird guards on our outdoor TrapStiks to protect wildlife.
