    Q
    Can I still use Sevin Insecticide Granules product and then assume that the rain will do the trick?
    I don't have a garden hose.
    A

    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.

    Q
    I have a Scott's Deluxe Edgeguard, what is the setting for this spreader for ticks?
    A

    Sevin Insecticide Granules label does not list the Scott's Deluxe Edgeguard. It would be best to map out 1000 sq feet and then add the amount of product needed for you are treating for. Set the Spreader on the 2nd to lowest setting. If you still have product left over at the end of 1000sq feet up the setting. If not then adjust the setting lower.

    Q
    Can I apply Sevin insecticide for nigh tcrawlers near a drinking water well? Or are there any safer products?
    A
    There are not any products that are labeled to control earth worms or night crawlers and we are not sure if Sevin will work for this use. You will need to keep Sevin at least 20 feet away from the water source.

  • Asked by Morrye from Red Oak, Nc
    02/26/2017
    Q
    How long does Sevin Granules remain in the soil?
    We are getting a new puppy in two weeks. Is it safe to use immediately?
    A

    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.

  • Asked by Valerie from Conway, Ar
    09/01/2017
    Q
    Will Sevin Insecticide Granules be okay if watered several days later?
    I just applied the granules to the grassy area where I take my dog outside at my apartment. I didn't realize that it needs to be watered down afterwards, and there are no watering hoses at the apartment, however, it's supposed to rain in a few days. Will the rain in a few days work, or will I need to reapply by then? Also, will it be safe to take my dog outside in the meantime?
    A

    Sevin Insecticide Granules need to be watered in immediately after application to activate the granules.  While it might be ok for rain a few days later, to get the most effectiveness we would recommend applying right before it rains.  Pets should be kept out of treated areas after watering in until dry.  If there are any dry granules on the ground for the dog to pick up, it would be recommend to keep your dog out of that area until the rain.

  • Asked by Marla from Tallahassee, Florida
    11/26/2013
    Q
    Does the lawn need to be dry?
    A
    Watering the Sevin granules in is what activates the granules. If it is going to rain close to the time you are applying the granules that will be fine too. Failure to water in the granules can lead to treatment failure because the chemical cannot be released from the granule and will not be available to the pests.

    03/01/2016
    Q
    Are the insects listed on the Sevin Insecticide Granules label common to flower gardens?
    I'm a novice at this. Please Help.
    A

    Sevin Insecticide Granules can be used for a variety of turf and crawling pests that may be found around flowers and other ornamentals as listed on the product label. It is important to keep in mind that Sevin is a very short-acting insecticide and should not be relied on for long-term control. This formulation is a granule that is applied to the ground and then watered in to active the product. We are happy to assist you with a recommendation if you know of any specific pests that you need to treat. You can also reach our Customer Service staff by phone at 866-581-7378 M-F 9a-5p EST.

  • Asked by Jim from Goddard, Kansas
    06/26/2017
    Q
    Do the Sevin Insecticide Granules work like Sevin Dust?
    I dusted my vegetable plants but don't think the granules will stay on the plants like the dust. Will the Sevin Insecticide Granules kill squash beetles that are on the plants?
    A

    Squash Beetles are not listed on the Sevin Insecticide Granules label. Granules are meant to be applied to the ground and watered in to activate. They would not stick to any foliage. Sevin Concentrate is labeled for squash beetles. According to the label, mix 1.5 fl. oz. of product per gallon of water and apply product in adequate volume to effectively cover both the upper and lower surfaces of the plant.

    Q
    Sevin to kill grubs
    I live in Zone 4/5 so its still in low 20's at night. Would it be better to wait till its warmer to try to kill grubs. I would think they are still quite deep in the ground.
    A
    We recommend contacting your Local Cooperative Extension office for the best time to treat for grubs in your region. They are better familiar with soil temps, hatching times and conditions in your area. After speaking with them, you may contact a representative at 1-866-581-7378 and we can assist you with a product.

  • Asked by Dave from Manchester Nh

    Q
    I spread seven on my lawn last evening, its rained throughout the night will this wash out the effect?
    It may take days to dry, Its been 12 hrs. Is it safe for my dogs if wet?
    A
    If the product has been washed away it should be safe for the pets to re-enter the area but try to keep them off the lawn as long as possible til it at least dries some. Keep an eye out for puddles that the dogs could potentially drink from in the yard and keep them away from those until gone. If you have any other worries, contact the manufacturer as they will better be able to tell you the side effects if any that the pets would incur. GardenTech:1-866-945-5033
