Setting traps is just one of the many effective ways that you can get pests out of your home. The only issue is that many of these pest traps can be poisonous or hazardous to your pets and your children if they were to get into them.

Here are a few tips that you can use to keep your children and pets away from pest traps.

1) Pest Trap Prevention

In terms of the type of pesticide that you are using to kill rodents or pests, make sure that you choose the method that is the least toxic. That way, in the worst-case scenario that your pet or child would get a hold of a trap, this would lower the risk or level of harm that the trap could cause your pet or child.

2) Pest Trap Placement

One of the best ways you can make sure that all of your pets and children are safe is to keep your pest traps out of reach. Putting traps in locations around your house where pests tend to congregate is essential for getting rid of your pest problem, but you need to make sure that traps are unreachable to your pets and your kids, to maximize safety.

3) Use Bait Stations

Bait stations are a safe and effective way to lure and eliminate pests while minimizing the risk for your children or pets. Just as they sound, bait stations contain pesticides or toxins that will lure and eliminate pests, while providing a protective containment for that bait to sit in. High-quality pest bait stations are made to be both pet and childproof and are a great way to take care of your pest problem while making sure that your family is safe.
