What is the best non-toxic bug spray for toddlers?


When it comes to keeping homes bug-free while also ensuring the safety of our youngest family members, the search for a truly effective and non-toxic solution can be daunting. Look no further, as today we delve into the features of Six Feet Under, the premier bug spray that is not only potent and fast-acting, but also eco-friendly and safe for children.

Why non-toxic bug sprays are important for toddlers

Let's be real—toddlers explore the world with their hands and mouths. They are naturally curious creatures who are likely to touch, taste and generally interact with their environment. Therefore, the products you use around them should be as safe as possible. Traditional bug sprays contain harsh chemicals that can be dangerous if ingested, inhaled or even touched. We all want our homes to be a sanctuary, not a hazardous zone. 

Toddlers and young children have skin that is more sensitive compared to adults, and their respiratory and immune systems are still developing. This heightened vulnerability makes them more susceptible to irritations, potential complications and even long-term health issues like allergies or more severe conditions from exposure to toxic substances.


With their bodies still growing, the impact of hazardous chemicals can be both immediate and long-lasting, affecting their future health as well. This underscores the critical importance of choosing household products carefully. 

Furthermore, toddlers are often at ground level, crawling, playing and discovering the big, vast world around them. This puts them in closer proximity to areas where bug sprays are most commonly applied, like floors and lower shelves. The likelihood of them coming into contact with these areas is high, making it even more important that the products you choose are non-toxic

What makes Six Feet Under exceptional for toddlers?

If you're a parent or caregiver of a toddler, Six Feet Under's unique formulation offers a potent and reliable solution to keep your household pest-free, all while prioritizing your child's safety and well-being. What sets it apart? First, it's explicitly designed to be non-toxic, kid-safe and family-safe. The formula is so benign you can use it around food areas, ensuring that your little ones can continue their explorations without encountering harmful chemicals.

But don't underestimate its efficacy. Six Feet Under is crafted to be powerfully potent, cutting no corners in eliminating a wide array of household pests.


What's better is that its fast-acting formula is perfect for the quick response times needed in a home with a curious toddler. This ensures you can swiftly deal with any insects your toddler might encounter, from ants and pantry moths to fruit flies and mosquitoes, without worrying about toxic residue.

The scent of Six Feet Under also sets it apart in a market that often overlooks the importance of fragrance—or rather, the harm it can cause. Many bug sprays include artificial fragrances that can be particularly irritating for young children, contributing to respiratory issues or skin sensitivities. Six Feet Under avoids these problems by steering clear of added synthetic fragrances. Instead, it offers a natural, subtle aroma of cinnamon with a touch of clove. This not only eliminates the bug problem effectively but also ensures that your toddler won't be exposed to harmful fragrances. The scent is derived from its natural ingredients, which can be a relief to parents concerned about synthetic fragrances.

Moreover, Six Feet Under offers the added advantage of being pet-friendly. This is particularly beneficial in households with toddlers who love to pet and play with their four-legged friends. You can apply Six Feet Under directly on pets for natural flea and tick control, offering you a full-circle, household-friendly solution to bug-related concerns.

To summarize, Six Feet Under meets the unique demands that come with caring for toddlers. Its non-toxic, fast-acting formula ensures immediate and effective pest control, making your home a safer environment for tiny hands and feet to explore. The pleasant, fragrance-free aroma and pet-friendly features are cherries on top, completing its profile as an exceptional bug spray tailored for households with young children. With Six Feet Under, you're investing in not just efficient pest control, but in the long-term health and happiness of your toddler.

How to use Six Feet Under effectively

Using Six Feet Under is more than just spraying it aimlessly; it's about strategically integrating it into a household where toddlers roam freely and curiously. Here's how to do just that:

  • Pinpoint target areas: Begin by identifying the most bug-prone areas in your home. This includes areas that your toddler frequents like playrooms, dining areas, and bedrooms. Toddlers are naturally curious, and it's crucial to focus on areas where they may interact with their surroundings.
  • Spray directly, no worries: No need for elaborate preparations—Six Feet Under is safe around kids and pets. Aim the spray directly at the unwanted pests. It's designed to be potent on contact, offering immediate relief from your insect woes. Still, always adhere to the product user guide to ensure you're using the product as effectively as possible.
  • Safe for pet use: Family includes our four-legged friends, and Six Feet Under can be used safely on pets too. To ward off fleas and ticks, lightly mist it over your pet's fur, following any manufacturer guidelines for safe application. You can let your toddler and pet play together afterward without a second thought.
