    I'm doing a mulch job for a customer that has several ponds in her yard, shes worried about harming the wildlife (frogs and turtles). Will preen harm animals?

    Did you "read" the warning label?

    Generally if it's watered in correctly it stays in the soil. I would not apply it after a rain when the ground is saturated because it will not move into the soil as it should. Aside from what I said, read the label.

    Preen doesn't work anyway so don't bother. SnapShot 2.5 TG is what you want to use.

    I read it as Pre-m...in that case use Barricade, it's cheap and works great.
