In this episode Jeff will discuss some of the risks associated with having a bed bug infestation in a home with a pregnant woman or a newborn child. The first and most important aspect of this topic is that if you are concerned with any pesticides being applied in your home you should ask the pest control company for the MSDS sheets of those pesticides and ask your family doctor if they are appropriate to be used around a pregnant woman or newborn child. A pest control company should not be answering questions about the safety of pesticides around pregnant women or newborn children and that is a question better left to doctors. One of the best options for these environments may be heat treatment of the home or of the newborn childs furniture. This would dramatically reduce if not stop the use of pesticides in the home which is always preferred around sensitive individuals.
