What are they spraying? Aqua-Kontrol 30-30.
It is a synthetic pyrethroid insecticide and synergist.
The 30-30 refers to it being 30% Permethrin and 30% Piperonyl Butoxide. The other 40% made up of an unknown proprietary chemical composition. Since it is a proprietary blend we have no way of knowing the toxicity of this portion of the product.
