A. Not unless you're cold-blooded. The insecticide used is environmentally friendly, biodegradable, and cannot be metabolized by warm blooded animals. Pyrethrum is rapidly broken down by sunlight and air into harmless molecules eliminating the risk of run-off contamination. It leaves no residue and insect resistance is almost nonexistent.
