I just learned my neighbor uses Diazinon on her yard to kill ants. Can just a few granules of this substance kill a feline? thx.
Organophosphate pesticides like Diazinon can cause acute toxicity in animals if given in large doses of over 50mgm/kg body weight orally or dermal application of over 200mgm/kg.It is highly unlikely that a few granules will kill a cat.
