Most pesticides are toxic to both humans and animals. Even organic pesticides can be toxic to humans and animals.

As long as you follow instructions on the package and use the product with the utmost of common sense, then none of them will pose a serious threat to anything.

If you make your own instruction, like many do, then you will be risking, your own health, along with others in your area, and causing environmental issues as well.

As long as you use everything according to the instruction, you should run into no issue.
