IS PEST CONTROL A KID SAFE WAY FOR GETTING RID OF BUGS?
A lot of parents are concerned about using pest control and wonder if it is a safe way for getting rid of bugs. There are a lot of ways to use pest control that are completely safe for kids and your family.
Unfortunately, most often the problem of pest control being safe for kids, is when people try and do their own pest control. The average person isn’t properly trained on how to apply products, or what products even to use for pest control.
Most people end up going to the store and buying some over-the-counter pest control product and spray it all over the house hoping it will get rid of bugs. If you aren’t targeting the right places, or using the right products, you could be wasting your time, and putting your family in danger.

When you have a properly trained pest control service tackle your pest issues, you can rest assured that your kids and family will be safe. Proper treatment of pest control often done with proper placement around your home.
Pest issues, unless already occurring in your home, come from the outside. We at Rove Pest Control first create a barrier of product around the outside of your home.
This can help get rid of bugs as they quickly die off when they do sneak into your home, which prevents them from nesting. In addition to that, the barrier treatments we put around your home have a much greater residual life than anything you can get at the store.
Most over the counter pest control products only work with direct contact. This means you’ll have to spray those products inside your home, which could often be areas your kid frequent.
With long residual life, and the ability for the pest control products to get rid of pests without requiring direct contact, it can keep your family safer. Pest can simply pass through treated areas and they will die off.
This means that a pest control service will treat the outside of your home and in cracks and crevices where your kids and family can’t access. This is a much more effective way of getting rid of bugs vs putting product in unsafe areas.
Overall, focusing on prevention through education, and having professionals take care of the heavy lifting, you can really keep your kids safe and get rid of bugs in your home.
