Q&A Home

Victoria from New Orleans writes,

Dog park use, would there be any risk to dogs that might chew on the grass after it's dried?

The application would occur during closed hours so that it would be dried before dogs enter the park. Another question is, you note that fleas live and reproduce in shady moist areas of the yard, but what if there are a lot of dogs on the property as in a dog park? Should we just treat the entire lawn (approx 1/2 acre) and perimeter of dwellings on a routine basis? Thank you for your help.


Once Archer IGR is dry, it is safe the dogs to be on the lawn and chew the grass.

We would recommend treating the entire lawn. Archer IGR is labeled to be used in pet dwellings so this will be safe to use there as well. We would also recommend using an insecticide with Archer IGR, such as Onslaught. Archer IGR is just a growth regulator. It will not kill the fleas. It will only stop them from reproducing. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
