You may want to research that.
The surfactant is a wax that sublimes when heated. It does so quite slowly at room temperatures and these waxes are non toxic.
In fact there are crazies that eat a box of sheets a day with no apparent harm.
(And no internal "static cling" either.)
I can taste Spinosad and will not spray it on my plants.
But I will add that, and/or B.T. to my irrigation water.
At least I did 5 years ago.
Now, I need nothing but the dryer sheets, outdoors, in the tropics.
