Lori from Katy, Tx writes,

How long before it is safe to let my dogs back in the yard after Advion application?

A friend in the profession told me that Advion is the only product that works. Just moved to Texas, and am unfamiliar with fire ants. Brand new build, 5000sqft, infestation was in my son's room on the first floor. I had a professional service do the perimeter and the inside of my home. I would like to treat my entire yard, but after reading the label and MSDS sheet, I have concern for my son and my two small dogs. Thank you for any assistance on my question, and I'm open to any hints on how best to apply!

Answer:

When you apply the product properly in a broadcast application you only have to keep the pets and children out of the area during the application. Once the product is broadcast, only a very minute amount will be available (and a child or dog would be very hard pressed to even find that amount in a broadcast application) which would not be enough to harm your dogs or child. The MSDS also says that the product is not likely to be hazardous if inhaled, swallowed or if comes into contact with skin.
"IF INHALED: No specific intervention is indicated as the
compound is not likely to be hazardous by inhalation.
Consult a physician if necessary.
IF ON SKIN OR CLOTHING: No specific intervention is
indicated as the compound is not likely to be hazardous to
the skin. Consult a physician if necessary.
IF IN EYES: No specific intervention is indicated as the
compound is not likely to be hazardous to the eyes. Consult
a physician if necessary.
IF SWALLOWED: No specific intervention is indicated as the
compound is not likely to be hazardous by ingestion.
Consult a physician if necessary"
