Patricia writes,

Is 565 PLUS XLO safe around babies and children?

Is it safe to use on the baseboards if you have a baby that is crawling, or there are children playing on the floors near the baseboards?


Yes, 565 PLUS XLO contains the active ingredient pyrethrin, a natural botanical insecticide made from chrysanthemum flowers. All infants and children should be out of the area during the application and they can return as soon as the treated area is dry. We also recommend venting the treated area for about 30 minutes prior to sensitive individuals returning.
