Deadly situation?

A couple of days ago I put a pile of sunflower seeds in the middle of my yard. Today, without thinking, I ran my spreader over the lawn to put down crabgrass preventer plus fertilizer. I know some of the granules got on the sunflower seed. Is this a concern?

Hi lespirtle and a warm welcome to you on behalf of the Staff and Moderators.

I've moved your post to the Gardening section; I'm sure someone will be along soon to advise you.

Yes, this is a concern! Birds and animals are very sensitive to chemical fertilizers and pesticides!
