Is the Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait Gel safe to use in a room that a toddler plays in?

I find the most ants in my sons playroom. He is 13 months old. Is the Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait Gel safe to use in that room if he can't get to the bait directly?


Absolutely.  Gel baits are preferred in situations where children are involved such as schools or day cares because it has a very low toxicity and it can be placed out of reach.  If the bait is placed out of reach then there will be no issues with your baby being in the room.
