Is Demand CS safe to use around children and pets?

What's the risk of transfer since Demand CS is capsulated? For instance, we have hardwood floors and we vacuum the floors and the baseboards. Can the insecticide be transferred from the vacuum to another surface (such as when vacuum rugs and couches) and increase the risk of contact?


If you are applying the product correctly, it should only be in cracks and crevices and other closed off areas. There should not be any issues with transfer effect like you are speaking of.  Once you apply Demand CS, the tiny microscopic balls of insecticide will bond to porous surfaces and will not be removed by general cleaning or vacuuming.  You should allow 30 minutes after application for the product to dry before cleaning or allowing children and pets to re-enter the room.
