Is the residue left behind on surfaces from Cyper WP and Delta dust dangerous for kids to touch?

Is the film/residue left behind safe for kids to touch, regarding a concern for ingestion, unintended transference to food, skin, eyes, clothes and so on? How long before surfaces can be safely touched after treatment? Aside from carpenter bees, are the treatments effective on other bees, insects, hornets, ants, beetles, spiders, midges, etc?


After the products have been applied according to the product label and liquids have dried, there should be no problem with anyone touching the treated surfaces. That being said, most of the surfaces being treated for carpenter bees are not frequently touched by anyone including children (over hangs, eaves, undersides of railings, siding..). Both the Cyper WP and the Delta dust included in the carpenter bee kit are labeled for many insects, not just carpenter bees and will do a great job for general pest control issues.
