  • they wont do it. when we had them here they told us specifically if the kid is under 1 she cant be in. you'll have to leave for a hour or two

  • i would just hang out until they were done then leave and go to lunch or something. the chemicals are dangerous for kids under 1. and if they dont tell you that they are asses. it was terminix that does our house and they are the biggest exterminators so i trust their judgement on that

  • You ask for a list of the chemicals and you do an online search for each one.
