Is Extinguish Plus Fire Ant Bait toxic around bird feeders and dogs?

I asked the pest control man not to use this in my back yard because I have a dog and bird feeders. But he went ahead and did it any way. Now I'm concerned because I have alot of wild life in my back yard.


Extinguish Plus Fire Ant Bait is safe when used as directed.  Your dogs can safely return to the treated area 12 hours after the application according to the product label.  We would recommend applying in the early morning or late evening when bees are less active.  When you apply this product, you normally would broadcast it over your lawn in such a small amount there would not be enough of it in one place for your pet/birds to consume.  This product is only strong enough to kill a very small ant, larger animals would have to ingest quite a bit of it to be effected
