I have a small pond inside my house. Is it ok to apply this product inside my house?
I have a small fish pond inside my house. I know this product shouldn't be applied very near to it, but I'm wondering it if I applied it inside my house, on areas not directly adjacent to the pond, and somehow a contaminated bug ended up inside the pond while it's dying, is this product so highly toxic to fish that this would be dangerous for them?
You can apply Bifen IT indoors so long as you make sure none of the spray winds up in the pond. The very small amount an insect may have on its body should have no effect at all on anything in the pond. If contaminating the pond is still a concern for you there is a product called Essentria IC3 that can be used around water without worry of hurting any of the aquatic animals you may have. Essentria IC3 is a broad-spectrum natural insecticide that works just as well as the synthetic insecticides but without the aquatic toxicity issue.
