Is Pyrethrum safe to use for ant hills or will I be harming other benefical insects? A door to door company has been in my neighborhood selling a service which uses this product. I'd rather not use any pesticides.

Pyrethrin products are safe to use according to label directions, and like any insecticide, can kill beneficial insects too. If you wish to not use pesticides, just decline the offer.
