Our cat appears to have bought fleas into the house and they are really going for DS, he is covered in bites and really itchy. While I was just sitting on his bedroom floor reading him a book, one jumped onto his arm and bite him - just horrible. I have the pest control man booked to come tomorrow to spray the whole house, but I have just read up on the ingredient he uses (bendiocarb) and it sounds really toxic so I am now really worried about having the kids rooms sprayed with this highly toxic chemical. Has anyone else had the pest control man for fleas or know anything about its safety?

I hope this helps.

It doesn't seem particularly dangerous and the pest control man will probably allow for enough breathing for the room after treatment.

I would thoroughly wash bedding in particular at a high temperature to get rid of both fleas and insecticide.
