August from Hawaii writes,

Can you explain how Temprid SC becomes safe after drying but isn't safe during application?

Never had any pest control service before & have no experience on the subject. Recently moved to tropics where this product must be sprayed monthly. I'm concerned with my cat who rubs, lays, and brushes up against the walls then licks himself. Also afraid he may eat a pest that has been exposed to Temprid. Would that have an effect on the cat, whether dry or not? Whats the difference chemically?


The reason an application of Temprid SC is safe once dry is because when it is dry the product as adhered to the surface and will not be so easily removed.  While it is still wet it would be easy for the cat to ingest it if they were to lick the area.  It only takes a small amount of the active ingredient to harm an insect but for a cat they would have to either physically ingest a large portion of the actual product or at least their weight in bugs that died after contacting Temprid.
