I searched the internet (using the InfoSeek search engine) for sites
with references to Temephos and got 34 sites. I could not find any
reference to restriction on the use of Temephos.
One site has extensive information that you may find useful:
ranks temphos as "slightly toxic".
Hope you will find this useful.
