    Now there seems to be a situation with Pendulum , the girls next door to the yard I treated 4 months ago are now saying that they are very very chemical sensitive and the treatment made them sick.
    They went knocking on doors lookin for others that got sick , found a 86 year old woman , that I know and is out of her mind -
    have talked to her many times , and they have involved her in this .
    The home they live in is old and so are the homes in the neighborhood .
    Hypocritical , I'll bet they are .
    What a load of poop .
    Histrionics , maybe , maybe not .

    pendalum is pendamethalin--same as Scotts Turfbuilder. The problem could have come from anywhere around them in other yards. The toxicity is very low. Since they claim to be very very chemically sensitive--there are hundreds of other chemicals in the air --in their carpet--in their toothpaste--in their car--all of which are probably affecting them, unless the problem is psychosomatic. Ask them to see a psychologist to rule out psychosomatic problems first.

    Two hundred grains of salt over shoulder. If you used the EC formulation, it was probably the fumes, a non toxic by-product, that bothered them. Eventually they'll get over it. There is a new formula called Pendulum Aqua Cap that is a low oder version.
