Is the residual harmful to humans?

If Talstar works by creating a residual that the bugs come in contact with and eventually die, won't that same residual, for example, if applied to a fence that my young kids touch, negatively affect them? Yes, I already understand that it is odorless and clear, but I was thinking about the residual and how it must also be absorbed by humans when they touch the same sprayed surfaces over the subsequent 3 month before reapplying.


No, Talstar P (Talstar One) is not harmful to humans if they come in contact with it after it is dry. It will not affect children if they touch the fence because it is none irritating if it touches the skin. It is recommended for children to not be in the area until the product is completely dry. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
