Q. What's the difference between a selective pesticide, and a non selective pesticide?
A. A non-selective pesticide is designed to control a large range of pests. RoundUp is an example of a non-selective herbicide. Selective pesticides on the other hand are intended to control a specific pest, or closely related family of pests. These are used to treat for certain pests such as Yellow Nut Sedge without harming the surrounding turf, or soil.
Q. Are the treatments safe for my pets?
A. Lawn treatments containing pesticides pose a minimal risk. Although the pesticides themselves will rarely affect people, or animals, This risk is typically measured in the amount of material that can be dislodged from the target area. As soon as pesticides dry in a liquid application, approximately 10% of the material can be dislodged from the target area. 24 hours later, less than 1% is dislodgable. The risk of hurting your animals or children is negligible. If this is a major concern, GreenScape recommends vacating the treated area for 6-24 hours after the treatment has dried.
