Natria Review: Are Natria Products Safe for Pets?

Sharing is caring!

Natria Organic products are easy to use (most of them are ready to use/spray) and made of safe, eco-friendly materials. Natria products comprise those that control disease, eradicates pests, and weed and grass control herbicides.

These products are EPA registered; hence they are organic and safe to use. They are less toxic and favorable for use in your gardens and lawns.

However, it's paramount to keep your pets away from the treated area until the herbicide has thoroughly dried. The herbicide should have dried in at least 2 hours.

Before we begin, let's look at some of the general safety precautions:


Safety Measures While using Natria Products (pet's safety)

Read the labels and instructions carefully

It is a requirement by the law to read the label before using any herbicide or pesticide. This helps you understand its usage and the effects that may arise if used otherwise.

Herbicide should dry before using the treated area

After spraying your lawn or garden, let the herbicide dry before allowing in your pets.

If possible, use natural weed control measures

The use of mulch, for example, reduces the sprouting of weed in a garden. You can as well use a hoe or hand to pull the weeds instead of using herbicides. Here's a list of herbicide alternatives if you want to learn more.


Natria Organic Products and Their Uses

This herbicide is non-selective and controls a wide range of grasses, weeds, and moss. It works fast, and results are visible in minutes. Use the herbicide on your driveways, patios, sidewalks, and flower beds. It does not stain thus ideal on asphalt, concrete, bricks, and driveways.

Natria Grass and Weed Control kill not only the toughest weeds and grasses but also their roots. It is also nature friendly and safe to use in your garden and lawn (it does not contain glyphosate).

Instead, Natria has Maleic Hydrazide (ammoniated soap of fatty acids) as its active ingredient.

The product eliminates weeds, moss, grass, vines, and brushes. It also eliminates dandelion, clover, common groundsel, and poison ivy.

Precautions to Take to Avoid Spray Drift

Spray drift is when the herbicide drifts and harms your desirable plant or flower.

The non-selective herbicide will most probably do away with almost any plant they get into contact. To avoid this, you need to take precaution and follow the following guidelines;


Read and understand the label

If the label states that you should use a low-pressure sprayer, use one. The use of a high-pressure sprayer will lead to the drift of small particles.


Clean sprayers appropriately

Rinse the sprayers after use and discard the rinse water safely. The rinse water should not come into contact with any desirable plant.


Spray your herbicides in the morning when the air is calm

If possible, have a contact herbicide sprayer which to use exclusively to control weeds.

In case you want to spray your desirable plants, use another sprayer to avoid harming them with residues from the weed killer.


Use a plastic sheet to cover nearby plants to protect them from spray drift

Remove the sheet after the herbicide has dried completely. Keep off treated areas since your shoes might carry the herbicide to your lawn.
