Stolburg will be treating common areas around New Mark on Wednesday, May 2 and Friday, May 4 with Lesco Dimension Fertilizer with Herbicide. (See the Safety Data Sheet here.)

Weather permitting, they will be applying the product in two stages, two days apart. This will keep several untreated areas available at any one time for dog-walking.

In the case of bad weather, the treatment schedule will shift and the community will be alerted to the new dates via an email broadcast.

Stolburg has assured us that they will put down plenty of warning signs. The company says that the time period for dogs and children to avoid the areas is “legally two days.”

Some people say this product is low toxicity and safe for pets and some say any level is dangerous. Everyone should use their own best judgment.
