This product contains an active ingredient and aromatic petroleum distillates, which are toxic to aquatic organisms and non-target terrestrial plants. Observe buffer zones specified under Directions for Use. To reduce runoff from treated areas into aquatic habitats, avoid application to areas with a moderate to steep slope, compacted soil, or clay. Avoid application when heavy rain is forecast. Contamination of aquatic areas as a result of runoff may be reduced by including a vegetative filter strip between the treated area and the edge of the water body. |READ MORE
