    Hi John –

    Yes, Eco Bran Grasshopper Killer is toxic to pets, but they would pretty much have to get into the container to be harmed. The product comes pre-mixed on a bran bait with a 2% solution of the pesticide applied. Ecobran is effective at this reduced rate because the pest actually consumes the product. It is also applied at a rate of 2-10 lbs per acre so I don’t think they would be able to consume enough of the product after application. Ecobran will also not harm most beneficial insects because they are not attracted to the bran bait.


    Hope this helps!
