Is your product safe for use around dogs? I moved to Lake Worth, Florida about a month ago from southeastern Wisconsin. I have 3 miniature dachshunds. Within the last few weeks one of my dogs has caught 2 big frogs. Both times it was about 4:00pm. This required 2 visits to the emergency vet. The vet told me that they’re an invasive species from Australia, highly toxic and can cause seizures and death. I never want my dogs to be sick or hurt. Is there anything I can do to get the frogs/toads out of my yard and keep them out or anything else I can do to keep my dogs safe? Please help! Any advice would help. I have been taking them out on their leashes but I rented a house with a yard so my dogs could run around. They have always had a backyard to run around in.
PEST RID GRANULES and PEST RID SPRAY won’t pose a hazard to your dogs and should be applied around the yard to keep the frogs out. Made with food grade actives, it has a slight odor and bad taste which works well at repelling a wide range of reptiles, amphibians and insects. But to people and pets, it won’t be noticed once applied and even if they were to ingest some, it won’t do a thing. In fact it won’t hurt the frogs; its just a repellent. But frogs don’t like it and will avoid crossing it so it can be used to keep them away.
So for your situation, you need to put in place a barrier of Pest Rid by using both granules and spray. In most cases there will be one or two sides mostly used. So do some inspecting to see which direction that might be and if possible, treat those sides extra well. But in general, you’ll need to treat all three sides of the property since they could be coming from any direction.
After the granules are applied, spray over the top with PEST RID SPRAY. 1 gallon will cover up to 500 sq/ft and should be applied at least once a month. In some cases the spray will be needed during the month for spot treating. Remember, since the spray gets immediate results, it can be applied as needed. So if you locate a spot they seem to like inside the yard or maybe someplace in the front yard, be sure to treat right away.
