It is a common garden insecticide and has been used for that purpose for
years with sometimes harmful side effects, if washed into a stream or pond,
or eaten by a pet. The good news as described earlier, is that it degrades to
a harmless state pretty quickly. It is derived from natural sources - I
forgot which plant.
