Even though it is organic, it’s still a good idea to keep pets and livestock off-treated areas for an hour or so. Pulverize works very quickly and is effective at cooler temperatures.

Decimate is a non-selective herbicide that is almost organic. Technically it is naturally derived and makes a great alternative to Round-up. It will kill whatever you spray it on so take care when using around desirable plants. This slow-acting weed killer is great in areas where you need everything gone and don’t want to use the big baddy. Allow time to dry before pets and re-enter.
