Are Natural Guard products pet and child safe?

I need a product that is for grub control. I need something completely pet safe and child safe. What product do you recommend? Is the Natural Guard grub control product safe? Why are there warnings on the label? Thanks


Every pesticide has some level of toxicity, even the natural and organic products. Natural Guard is a "lower risk" product meaning that while there is some amount of toxicity it is very low. Every pesticide, natural or synthetic will have some warnings on the product label as there will be some level of toxicity and safety precautions will need to made.  As long as you follow the product label instructions and keep your children and pets out of the area while the application is being made and until the area is dry you should not have any issues.  As for using a Natural Guard product for grub control, that may not be possible as none of them are labeled for grubs. We do carry Milky Spore which is labeled for grubs and is one of the "lower risk" products. We should have Milky Spore back in stock shortly.
