Just For Pets Pet Friendly & Pet Safe Weed Killer Spray

This product was recommended by Dan Morris from Fire and Saw

We’ve used this product around our home and garden in the past because we have dogs, chickens, and rabbits (and sheep in the paddock). Plus, we’ve got young kids as well. We wanted to be sure that the weed killers we used would be safe for our pets and kids, and also for around the vegetable garden. This product has only natural ingredients and it does seem to work well. To be honest, however, I’ve stopped using all products like this now and have opted to just pull weeds by hand, dig them out with a trow, pour boiling water on them, or use my weed eater. I decided I didn’t want to be adding any type of poison, natural or not, to my home and garden. I really care about the bees in particular so believe it’s safer to avoid them all now.
