We have some old creosote and have been asked to paint fence rails and trees ! with it to stop horses from "eating" the fence and bark off trees...is this safe. All it says on the containers is not to use where bats are present. Thanks

"In 2003 the European Union banned creosote for amateur and unlicensed professional use, due to concerns over these health effects, noting that recent research had shown that the risk of skin cancer had perhaps been underestimated previously."
