Safe to do pest control

I've a nine month baby, our house need pest control because it's affected by termite. But is it safe to have pest control while having a toddler in home. I'm worry it might harm my baby. I be glad if you give some advice. Thank you

Answer: Hi, You raise an interesting question and one which many parents are concerned about. Check this link as there is a lot of very worthwhile information included as well as contact suggestions for the Department of Health pest control program. They may be able to advice you more comprehensively as they are specialists regarding the pesticide which your contractor is intending to use. It is always wise to get a few quotes and ensure that the operator knows there are young children/babies in the household. Make sure you aren't home when they are spraying and ensure that your baby isn't allowed to crawl around the area where they have sprayed or placed treatments. http://www.betterhealth.vic.gov.au/bhcv2/bhcarticles.nsf/pages/Pest_control_services?open Best Jane
