Stuart from Concord, Nh writes,

I like the idea of Gentrol Point Source and a bait, but I need products that can be used around toddlers....

I would use Gentrol Point Source inside cabinets and in the laundry room, along with some sort of bait that I hope you can recommend. But I have 2 toddlers and they "get into things". I have child-proof locks on cabinets but if I turn my back on an open cabinet while I am removing several items I worry about the toxicity. Do you have any recommendations on what bait to use and can I somehow use Gentrol Point Source safely?


Assuming you are treating for roaches, we would recommend that you treat with Temprid SC to the cracks and crevices when the children are not in the area during application and allow to completely dry. Once dry it is safe. The Gentrol Point Source stations can be safe if activated and applied in the cabinets up high out of their reach (also better for roach control). If treating smaller roaches, you could adhere the pre-baited Maxforce FC Roach Bait Stations to the insides of the back of the cabinets and underneath sinks and they will not be able to access the product. Please let us know if you need anything else. I have included some helpful information below.
