What effect does Crossbow have on birds, rabbits, turkeys and other wildlife that feed and nest near area to be sprayed?

Needing to do selective clearing of an overgrown area. Will it harm wildlife?


Typically any wildlife living in that area is going to move out while you are doing any clearing, walking, towing, or spraying of a product in that area. Products like Crossbow are designed to be safe for people and pets once dry and the safety likely is the same for wildlife. This time of year with hot temperatures surfaces should dry within about 30 min to an hour after spraying depending on how heavily you put it on the target plants. If you can find anything to do in that area for about 30 min after you spray to help keep the wildlife from moving back in for a bit they should be safe to return to their normal habitats and routine.
