Check the ingredients. The older formulations contained an insecticide which would definitely kill them. The newer formulations contain a mix of prazi & metro. Although according to Hikari (they make prazipro), praziquantel will not harm inverts or frogs, they recommend moving them elsewhere for treatment. I honestly do not know about the metro. I would move them elsewhere just to be safe.
