You should find suitable places in your house to plant the rat poison. Think hard and place the poison in those places that are completely out of the reach of your children and pets. Some suitable options to place rat poison are in the upper floor, behind the cupboard or underneath your sofa, as these places will keep the poison out of the reach of the children. Make sure that you put rat poison deep or far enough so that the paws of your pets are unable to reach them as they often pull things towards them through their paws.
Prefer using rat poison capsules instead of powered poison as this will make your place safer. Another reason is that, the residuals of powdered rat poisons are almost impossible to eliminate. In contrast, sealed bags of poison can be easily and completely removed from the place applied to.
Now you should wash your hands carefully and make sure that no remains are on your skin.
To ensure that your children do not reach rat poison in any case, place the poison on the upper shelf as this will eradicate all chances of your children reaching the poison.
