Sevin dust and my dogs
I had to dust my whole yard for fleas, it was bad. How long before I can let the dogs out in the yard, should I water it some first to get it off the tops of the leaves? They are small dogs and I don't want the getting sick from this.
Seven Dust 5% is not labeled to treat fleas, only flea beetles. We recommend contacting the manufacturer directly for the proper steps to ensure your pets safety. Please call Garden Tech at 1-866-945-5033.
Both Onslaught and Martins IGR will have instructions on the bottle that you need to read before use. Always read the product labels.
Onslaught Insecticide: Mix 0.5 to 1.0 fluid ounce of Onslaught in sufficient water to cover 1,000 square feet of lawn. Spray the entire lawn with a coarse, wet spray. Repeat this application in two weeks.
Martins IGR: Once you've mixed up the Onslaught according to the instructions mentioned above, simply add the desired amount of Martins IGR to the mix and spray both the Onslaught and Martins IGR at the same time. We recommend about 1 oz of Martins per every 5 gallons of Onslaught solution that you mix up.
Onslaught Insecticide: Mix 0.5 oz of Onslaught with 1 gallon of water (+ 1 oz of Martins IGR if needed, please see below) to treat a 1,000 sq ft area. Thoroughly apply as a fine particle broadcast spray to infested rugs, carpets, and pet resting areas.
Martins IGR: Add 1 oz of Martins IGR to the diluted solution of Onslaught for the initial treatment.
Prior to treatment, carpets, draperies and upholstered furniture should be vacuumed thoroughly and the vacuum cleaner bag disposed of in an outdoor trash receptacle. Remove pets from area to be treated. After treatment, do not allow children and pets into treated areas until spray has dried. You should vacuum once daily every day for the next 14 days to help speed up the flea elimination process. A second application of Onslaught may be needed after 14 days.
