Dear Rubenson,
 
It depends on what kinds of pest you want to control? Insecticide may effect to your little one since it contains chemical. For cockroaches, ants and flies, you should only use food grade insecticide/ glue board with the lock block/ box and keep far away from your little one. Hope this may help you. :roflmao: 
 
Sincerely,
May

I work in termite inspection Sydney and these chemicals are very safe these days. You will have to swallow many of them before they are harmful. If you tell them you have a baby, worry that they have to put it all through and know that, then they should be aware. Most of the time the wet chemicals they put in will be dry within 30 minutes - 1 hour, depending on the chemicals they put on the ceiling, many have talcum powder in it.
If you feel more comfortable to go out, do it. It is something like a mummy that is so cautious.
I hope this little help

My first thought was rodents but not sure what the issue is?  If it is rodents, fully enclosed break back traps should be fine like this.

Alternatively you could spray Malathion around the outside of your house to keep insects from entering. As it needs to be sprayed very close to your house,very low risk for your little one (it's what we use at my house)

Hi there, I have heard about fumigation chambers which can be the best option to control pest.

If pest control will be done using pesticides, then ask your bug guy for a copy of the MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) of the chemical that will be used. Or you can google it, then look at the Toxicity Section. The LD50 will state how much lethal the product is. 

 

I agree with @KiaraRicherd, non-residue chemicals will be gone in 1 hour. Just get your kid out for a few hours. 

 

Another option is to ask the pest controller to use only natural pesticides.

Might be time to pick up an electromagnetic pest repellent.

 

Here's a review of one I've seen sell well: http://lastminutegar...pellent-review/

I always think if these things worked, why does no food factory use them?
