    Any ideas?

    I just layed new sod (Zoysia) and since the sod had ants, we treated for ants and grubs. The next day we have tons of birds picking at the new sod.

    Should I be worried?

    The Birds will make nice fertilizer just be sure to make two passes with the mulching mower. J/K

    How should we know?, you did not say what you put down.

    It appear their website is down at the moment so I can not look at the label and MSDS.

    What is the active ingredient.

    worried about the birds or the sod?


    I wouldn't be worried about the sod.

    The birds...depends what the MSDS says.
