You will be using insecticides to make these traps. We don’t like that either, so we have done the research to figure out which chemicals are the safest to use and yet still get results. You get to choose.
You must read the labels on the stuff you use, and follow their instructions. It’s your fault if something bad happens, and you are going to feel really stupid if it happens because you didn’t read the label.
But even when using the safest ones, be smart. Don’t eat food while you are making the traps. Wear gloves. Wash your hands. Do NOT use kitchen utensils – get utensils dedicated to using chemicals. Avoid breathing the dust.
Just in case, you can reach the Poison Control Center at 1-800-222-1222.
