Is MotherEarth 2% Py Contact Aerosol safe to use around children and pets?

Does MotherEarth 2% Py Contact Aerosol have a residual effect on treated areas, and is it safe to use with children or adults still indoors? Do I have to clear the area of people and pets before applying the product? Can this product work well with Mother Earth D dust?


MotherEarth 2% Py Contact Aerosol is a contact aerosol which means that it only kills on contact and it does not leave a residual.  It is perfectly safe to apply with children and adults in the home, but it is best to use the product while children are in another room.  After about 20 minutes, the product will have dried and then it is fine to have children come back into the room.  MotherEarth D is a product that leaves a residual and the same instructions apply as far as keeping children out of the room while you apply it.  It is a great one, two punch to apply the MotherEarth D Dust and the 2% PY Contact Aerosol.
