Sevin Insecticide Granules can be watered in by rain. Please keep in mind that failure to water in the granules can lead to treatment failure because the chemical cannot be released fron the granule and will not be available to the pests. The dry granules usually fall into the thatch layer of the grass, and will largely not be available to pets and people walking over the surface so they should not pose any danger to you or your pets. Everyone should stay off of the grass until the area has had a chance to dry.

Sevin can be applied 4 times per year as needed for the target pest. (For instance you may only need to use it in the Spring/Summer and may apply 4 times during that period vs applying every 3 months). After spreading the granules across your lawn they would need to be watered in to activate the ingredients. Once they have been watered in and the water dries, your pup will be safe to play/chew to its hearts content. Normally a safe time frame to wait after watering is 1-2 hours.
