Is this safe for animals? Spray has a tendency to drift downwards.
The area being invaded by carpenter bees has our hay in it for the horses and goats and the cats sleep in there.
Cyper WP is safe for animals to be around after it has been applied and has had time to dry. However it is very important that Cyper WP be kept off of the hay if it is used as a food source for the animals. You can do this by covering the hay with tarps while you are applying the Cyper WP. An alternative would be to use a product such as Cyonara 9.7 which is labeled to be applied with a paint brush. Painting an insecticide onto a surface will prevent any issues with "drift". Cyonara 9.7 is included in our other Carpenter Bee Kit with Cyonara 9.7.
