    Permethrin is a harsh chemical. I used it to treat mosquito nets when I went travelling. It dissolved part of a plastic bottle I used, once dry it's supposed to be ok, but depending on the plastic it's applied to I'd imagine it could release fumes that could get trapped in the container.

    I want to clarify my position on the product. I think it's great and the most effective way to kill mites. As with any chemical there are risks. I hope to never have to use the product again but if I do I will make sure I've fine-tuned how I use it.
    Bob from ProProducts told me one way to use it was to spray the paper towels used in the cages before you put them it. Meaning you could have measured out sections treated and ready to use before you do a change. This way the drying takes place away from an enclosure where fumes could be trapped. He also said that plastics absorb the chemical. This caused fumes to come off the plastic for awhile. I hope to get his detailed email this week, I will post it up as soon as I get it.
