Childhood Safety

Children live and play in a variety of environments. Crawling on the floor of the home comes to mind. Playing in the home lawn as toddlers is often the first contact a child has with nature.

Parks and other recreational facilities also play an important role in the growth our children.

The school room, cafeteria, and the school yard usually follow. Children spend a lot of time at school.

Children live "low to the ground," and anything on the floor or the lawn, at home, park, or at the school is likely to end up on them, and possibly in them.

This becomes very important as it relates to pest control. How do we protect our children from both the harmful effects of insects, and the dangers inherent in pesticides at the same time?
