Keeping Kids Safe Around Pest Control

If you’re dealing with a pest issue and have young children, this concern is likely on your mind. While getting rid of pests is crucial, safeguarding your children from harm is equally important. Thankfully, modern pest control methods prioritize safety. However, it’s imperative to take precautionary steps when children are present on the affected property.

Protecting children during pest control involves the following measures:

  1. Ensure the use of tamper-proof traps: The latest traps are designed to be highly safe as they are fully enclosed and tamper-proof. This prevents children from coming into contact with any contained poisons. Pest technicians are typically the only ones who can open these traps, providing an additional layer of safety.

  2. Keep children away from the treated area: To safeguard children during pest control, it’s advisable to keep them out of the home while the treatment is ongoing. The exclusion period for children should be longer than that for adults. Consult with your pest controller to determine the recommended duration based on the specific extermination procedure.

  3. Place poisons and traps out of reach: Position traps in areas inaccessible to children, considering their tendency to crawl and play on the floor. Proper containment prevents accidental contact with poisons, and this is crucial as children often put their fingers in their mouths, increasing the risk.

4. Opt for eco-friendly pest control: The potential danger to children often arises from the use of pesticides. Choosing eco-friendly methods can mitigate this risk, as many environmentally friendly techniques are considered safer for children. Explore alternatives like heat treatments that are chemical-free.


These safety measures aren’t exclusive to families but should be implemented in any setting involving the care of children. Whether it’s schools, nurseries, venues for kids, or child-minders, adopting these pest control practices ensures the well-being of the young ones.
