    Q
    I need to use Sevin Granules on lawn to kill fleas. It is going to rain
    Weather says it will rain for a week. If I put them on lawn now, will they be effective? Urgent because of infestation of my cats caused by two stray dogs. Have had to clean entire house so yard is a constant source.
    A
    We would not recommend to use Sevin in this case. The Outdoor Flea Kit would be the best. It will stand up better in the rain.

    Q
    Treating ground ant colonies in the yard. I used 1/3 cup of Sevin to sprinkle over a 1-2 ft circle not working ?
    I watered the granules in ant colonies still very active making new large hole entrances 5 days later how long do this take to work ?
    A

    Per the Sevin Lawn Insecticide Granules: Treat ant mounds by applying ½ cup of this product per mound. Water with sufficient force to break its apex and allow the insecticide to flow into the ant tunnels, but not sufficient to significantly damage the mound that may lead to relocation.  For best results, apply in cool weather (65 to 80?F) or in early morning or late evening hours. Treat new mounds as they appear. This product will provide control of ant mounds within four hours

    Treatment should be done as long as you are seeing new activity and may require both mound treatments and broadcasting the product in the yard.

    Q
    How Long after application to check results
    I used the seven Granuales on lawn and in the garden and watered it in. When should i expect results or lift patches of grass to be sure it was effective?
    A
    It will take time to eliminate whatever pest are in your lawn areas that you treated. You did not specify exactly what pest you are trying to eliminate so it would be hard to give you a rough time frame on it without knowing that information. On average most pest can be eliminated with a few months and 2 applications.

  • Asked by Tony from Southaven, Mississippi

    Q
    I have a hand held spreader settings show 1-5. What would be the recommended setting?
    A

    We don't have the exact spreader setting for your model spreader. The easiest way to determine the correct setting to apply Sevin Lawn Insecticide Granules is as follows:

    If you need to use 1.15 lbs of product per 1,000 sq ft, then you would add 1.15 lb of product to spreader, start with a medium setting, then apply product to a 20 x 50 ft area (1,000 sq ft).  If you have product left, your setting is too low.  If you run out of product, your setting is too high

    Q
    Sevin Granules got in my Swimming Pool
    I am concerned that a small amount of Sevin Granules may have gotten in my pool. I had ants in the spaces between the concrete sections of the pool deck where the wood has deteriorated & put Sevin in the spaces. I thought the granules couldnt get into the pool because the deck slopes away from the water & I carefully hosed the Sevin away from the pool today, but noticed that the spaces butted against the pool coping and some probably got in the pool when I hosed the granules away. I would like to know about the toxicity of Sevin in a 22,000 gallon pool. The 'half-life of Sevin? And when would it be save to use the pool or if I need to drain it. Thank you very much for your reply.
    A

    Dogs should not be present and the areas need to be completely dry prior to their return when using Sevin Lawn Insecticide Granules. Manufacturers of products applied in the lawn have it mind that some dogs will chew small portions sometimes.
