HOW TO FIGHT BACK AND ELIMINATE WEEDS

Bug Lady posted this on Aug 4, 2016

 

I know that at least for me, weeds drive me crazy. I actually think I have one in particular that is stalking me and following me wherever I go. So if you are like me and looking for way to control weeds and not end up in a strait jacket, then you should watch this video. Knowing the correct product for your particular weed product will make keeping you wits about you easier than you think.


Using the right products, such as RangerPro and for your weed control will make all the difference in the world. There are a wide variety of products that are very specific to your needs or just a kill everything type of approach. We can definitely guide you in the right direct when you are looking for the perfect solution for weed control. Whether you are needing a selective or non-selective herbicide for your flower beds or lawns, ask the questions and we can help.


Maybe you are looking to be preventative after you do all this work and so a pre-emergent might be added to the arsenal of weed control and prevention. These are available in both granular and liquid form and should be applied 2 times a year early fall before winter weeds will germinate and then in early spring before any weeds are allowed to sprout. I recommend spraying your weeds, after pulling and all that good manual labor. Then apply a good granular pre-emergent to the area, plant your bedding plants and then put a good layer of mulch down. This should create the perfect storm and get you the best weed control.

Panoramic Herbicide is used to control weeds and grasses such as crabgrass foxtail, panicum, signalgrass, jewgrass, barnyardgrass, sandbur, ryegrass, fescue, wild oats, barley, johnsongrass, nutsedge, bahiagrass, dallisgrass, smutgrass, and many more listed grasses and weeds.


NON SELECTIVE HERBICIDES


Postemergence, nonselective herbicides are classified as either contact or systemic. A Non Selective Herbicide cannot differentiate between weeds you would like to kill and the plants you want unharmed. Contact herbicides kill only the green tissues that are contacted by the spray. Systemic herbicides move within the plant from the point of application to other plant parts. There are some systemic herbicides are can move easier and further in plants than others. The amount of movement systemically also depends on the season you are applying the herbicide, you want the plant to be actively growing so that the herbicide can be taken in systemically quickly and effectively. Therefore, to obtain optimum pest control, herbicides must be applied at the time of year when weeds are most susceptible and actively growing. We also recommend that you add to your herbicide a spray pattern indicator, which is a blue dye that will wear off in 24 hours, but allows you to see that you have gotten good coverage on the weed. Secondly, we recommend also adding a surfactant, which is a product that helps the herbicide perform at the best level, keeps it stuck to the plant and gets it absorbed quicker into the plants system. The cost for these 2 items is very low and you use only about a tablespoon per gallon, but they will pay for themselves 10 fold.
