What product would be safe to use in a barn that houses horses and cats?

We have a 3 stall barn that we use to house 2 horses and 2 barn cats. The barn has a dirt floor and is a wooden structure. We are worried about what type of pest control we should use. Can you recommend some? We have treated carpenter bees and wasps using typical products since they are above the ground level of the animals. We also have Lesser Mealworm Beetle/Yellow Mealworm in some part of the barn.


We would recommend Permethrin SFR 36.8% for treatment around livestock and barns.  Permethrin SFR 36.8%, when used as directed on the product label, is safe to use directly on dogs and other animals (Do NOT apply to cats), barns and livestock areas. It is a concentrate you mix with water and apply using a hand pump sprayer.  Please reference the product label for further instructions and complete information.
