Lawn care is crucial for keeping your grass in Delaware or Pennsylvania healthy and in its best shape, but a common concern during treatments is the safety of your pets. After all, your pets are a part of your family, so you want to ensure they don't potentially come into contact with harmful chemicals. Fortunately, there are steps that you can take to protect your furry friends during and after lawn care treatments! You'll want to keep them indoors during any applications to your lawn, then wait until the product dries before letting them back outside; how long it takes depends on a few factors, such as the weather that day and whether it's a granular or liquid treatment. However, talking with your lawn care provider is best, as they know their products and can advise you on what to do to keep your pets safe.

Keep Your Pets Indoors During Any Lawn Care Treatment Applications

One of the most important things you can do to keep your pets safe during any lawn care service is to keep them indoors while the treatment is being applied. That way, they don't come into contact with and potentially ingest harmful chemicals. Additionally, keeping them inside will allow your lawn care provider to administer their treatments without any distractions, ensuring efficiency and effectiveness.

You'll want to collect any pet toys and bowls and bring them indoors during a lawn care service to ensure they don't come into contact with the treatments.

Wait Until the Lawn Care Treatment Dries Before Letting Your Pets Back On the Lawn

To keep your pets safe after a lawn care treatment, you'll want to wait until they dry before letting them back on the lawn. How long this takes depends on a few factors, with one being the weather that day. After all, treatments can dry quicker during warmer, sunny days than on cooler, cloudy ones. Another factor is whether the product is granular or liquid. Liquid treatments typically dry faster than granular ones because all you need to do is wait until they soak into the soil, whereas the latter needs to be watered in to activate, which can take longer. However, once the treatment has dried, you can allow your pets back onto your lawn again.

Talk With Your Lawn Care Provider About Pet Safety During & After Treatments

The best way to ensure your pets stay safe during and after a lawn care service is to talk with your provider. Your lawn care provider knows all of the products they use, including how long they take to dry and any other precautions you should take; they can tell you exactly what to do to keep your pets safe during and after their treatments. With their instructions, you can rest easy knowing your furry friends are out of harm's way!
