Terri from Canada writes,

Merits says it's toxic to earthworms & birds. Will birds die if they eat earthworms or insects of treated lawn...

We try to do everything naturally but this year grubs horrible and need to take strong actions but want to make sure we don't hurt wild life.


As long as you follow the application instructions, you will not harm the wild life directly or indirectly by treating with Merit Granules. The active ingredient Imidicloprid has shown to have a low level of toxicity birds.
