I found a huge nest of baby lady bugs outside.  Normally that would be a good thing, but last winter we had a REALLY bad lady bug infestation inside the house, so I wanted to nip this in the bud.

I didn't want to use anything too terribly toxic, because it's outside and the sheep or goats might get to it.  We've got a bottle of poison specifically designed for use on animals.  It contains permethren, an artificial pyrethroid, which are generally harmless to mammals (except cats).  I noticed the box brags that the spray has a baby-powder scent.  Then I noticed in the warnings that you're not supposed to inhale the vapors.

If you're not supposed to be smelling it, why make it a pleasant baby powder scent?
