Is Bonide Mosquito Beater Natural RTS harmful to butterflies, bees and monarch butterfly caterpillars?

I grow milkweed for the Monarchs. I usually have +25 caterpillars in my garden during the summer and fall.


Bonide Mosquito Beater Natural RTS is not harmful to pollinators such as bees and butterflies once the application is dry. To further reduce risk to pollinators, we recommend treating in the morning or evening when they are less active and to avoid spraying the milkweed when you observe caterpillars in that area.
