Will Evergreen Pyrethrum Concentrate damage baseboards, wood floors, or carpets?

We are looking for an organic product to use on the interior of the home for general pest control. We shy away from using essential-oil based products like essentria because we worry that they will cause discoloration due to the oil components. Having said that, is Evergreen pyrethrum also heavily oil based? Will it cause any discoloration to baseboards, wood floors, or carpets?


Evergreen Pyrethrum Concentrate is an oil-based concentrate that should not cause harm or cause discoloration to baseboards or carpeting when used at the correct labeled rates.  If there is any cause for concern, it’s recommended to spot treat an inconspicuous area first.  It should not be broadcast over carpeted areas or over hardwood flooring.  It should only be used around baseboards, doors and windows, and in cracks and crevices.
