Step by Step Instructions

How to Use

  • Easily apply to weeds with the trigger sprayer.

When and Where to Use

Where Not to Use

  • For the safety of our customers and the environment, do not use this product to control weeds in vegetable gardens, flower beds, around shrubs, or near ornamental plants.

Where to Use

  • Intended for use only on residential lawns including Kentucky bluegrass, perennial ryegrass, fescues, common bermudagrass, hybrid bermudagrass, bahiagrass, bentgrass, buffalograss, centipedegrass, zoysiagrass, and St. Augustinegrass (except Floratam).

When to Apply

  • For the best weed killing results, spray when broadleaf weeds are young and actively growing, and air temperatures are not expected to exceed 90°F for 6 hours. Although this herbicide can be applied in the spring, summer, or fall, applications in the summer tend to be less effective. Under adequate soil moisture conditions, spring and fall treatments tend to offer best results.

How Often to Apply

  • Despite the power of this herbicide, certain persistent weeds may require a repeat application no sooner than 30 days. To ensure the longevity of your lawn, limit treatments (including spot treatments) to 2 times per year.

Special Instructions

Watering Tips

  • Rain or watering 6 hours after application will not wash away effectiveness.

Using With Other Products

  • In the event of an insect infestation, apply Ortho® BugClear™ Insect Killer for Lawns & Landscapes no sooner than 4 weeks after application. You may apply plant food and soil one week following the herbicide application.
