Child Safety with Combat Roach Baits

As always, your children’s safety is of the upmost importance; this is no different when it comes to using pest products. While you need to eliminate the roaches in your home, you do not want them to cause any adverse side effects for your children. Take the correct precautionary steps in using Combat Roach Baits to ensure the highest level of safety.

When there’s one cockroach in your home, it’s likely that there are hundreds more nesting somewhere within your walls. Combat Roach Baits kill from the source and eliminate the entire nest. Our baits come in three different forms: Combat Bait Stations, Combat Gel Baits, or Combat Bait Strips. Know how to use each product correctly, and keep your children safe.

Combat Bait Stations: Read the directions carefully, and only use as directed. Placing bait stations directly near your children’s toys or play areas may encourage them to play with the bait station. Although the bait is contained within the station, keeping them out of sight will also keep them out of mind. Do not pry open bait stations, cockroaches pass through the station to come in contact with the bait.

Combat Gel Baits: This is a form fitting substance, best used in cracks or crevices where cockroaches may enter your home. Gels are also meant to be used in hard to reach places, like along baseboards or under appliances. Use the amount of gel as instructed, and only as often as directed. Be sure to store Combat Gel Baits in original packaging and out of your children’s reach.

Combat Bait Strips: These strips are thin and discreet with an adhesive backing, allowing them to be completely versatile. Combat Bait Strips provide a no-mess solution to your pest problem. Avoid placing these strips directly near areas where your children play, and store out of their reach.

Combat Roach Baits were developed with a small amount of active ingredient, targeted at the roaches they eliminate. In the event your children do come into contact with a small amount of bait, contact the Combat Information Helpline at 1-800-426-6228 or contact your personal pediatrician.

Handling a pest problem shouldn’t require you to put your children in harm’s way. With Combat Roach Baits, you can keep your children safe while eliminating roaches in your home.
