Is Pest Control Safe Around Babies?

Many people are concerned about the safety of pest control. This is easy to understand. We use toxic chemicals and pesticides when killing pests, and these can also harm humans. If you’re someone with small children, you may be worried about this.

But what can you do? How can you make pest control safe if you have young children?

Why should be especially concerned about this? 

The chemicals used during pest control may be poisonous to anyone. But while adults can usually survive exposure to these chemicals, this isn’t always the case with children. This is especially true if you have small children and babies. Younger people are small and still developing. This means their bodies are more affected by chemicals.

Small children also like to explore and put their fingers into everything. Babies crawl and put things into their mouths. This can be a serious problem if you have poison or traps left around your home. For example, if you have rat pellets lying around then the results can be disastrous.

Babies can also be injured by things like mouse traps. This means you need to make pest control safe for your children. You need to monitor them and make sure that pellets, poisons, and traps are safely out of reach. If you’re doing your own pest control, then you must be aware of this.

But this is why it’s always best to leave things up to the professionals. We have thousands of successful jobs under our belt. This means we know what we’re doing and how to make pest control safe and still effective.

There are a number of ways in which we do this. First of all, we use professional grade traps. These traps are a lot more sophisticated than those you find in shops. To start with professional traps are completely enclosed. This means that the poison is safely locked away. There is no danger of your children accidentally eating pellets and getting into trouble.

We also take precautions when spraying pesticides when you call an exterminator. We make sure to use a dosage that is fatal only to pests, and not your children. We also advise the client on how long they need to stay out of the house or room, before it is safe to return.
