I have been using Constrain for several years on Natural history
specimens, textiles (testing on a discreet area before spraying) and
the inside of furniture and cabinets (especially entomology) I have
not noticed a return of pests in the objects treated and no damage
to the objects.  It is water based so I  protect any varnished or
waxed surface that is close to the areas I spray.
