Frequently Asked Questions
The label directions of every product we use declares that it is safe to enter treated areas after the treatment has dried, which varies in time depending on conditions like temperature, cloud cover, shade and soil saturation. [Even so, there may still be some powdery residue even after the spray has dried, which may perhaps discolor bare feet and white paws in an undesirable way; so it might not be a bad idea to wait until you have watered and then wait to dry again before you get back to using your yard.] (maybe take out last part)
It rained heavily soon after a treatment had been applied, did it ruin the effectiveness of the application?
Probably not. Many of the more modern herbicide products seem to enjoy being watered into the soil as soon as possible after an application; so in most cases it only helped, especially if the applied product did get at least 15 minutes to soak in. Feel free to notify us if there is no visible injury (to a weed) 10 days after a treatment whether it rained or not, and we will be genuinely more than happy to come back and set things right. We may even somehow have missed that it rained in your area of town.
Some weeds cannot be prevented and must be dealt with after they emerge. Some of those weeds can often only be eliminated at certain temperatures or maturity levels. Other weeds must be sprayed several times. Sometimes weeds develop a resistance to a herbicide. Other times the climate was such during a period that it was highly favorable for a certain weed to grow extra strong or prevalent that season. Watering less often and mowing the grass at a taller setting will help eliminate many weed problems.
