Step by Step Instructions

How to Use

To apply Ortho® WeedClear™ Lawn Weed Killer Ready-to-Use1:

1. Prepare the sprayer. Remove the battery powered wand from the side clip, unwrap the hose completely, and remove protective strip from battery compartment to activate batteries. Then insert the plug at the end of the hose into the spout on the cap until it clicks and flip up the spout. Spout must remain open while spraying. Next, flip open the wand until it locks into position.

2. Select your spray pattern. Twist the nozzle to the desired setting.

3. Spray. Point the want away from your body and hold the trigger for a continuous spray, releasing trigger to stop spraying. To spot treat, aim at center of weed and spray lightly to cover.

When ad Where to Use

Where Not to Use

Do not use this product for controlling weeds in vegetable gardens, flower beds or around shrubs or ornamental plants. Do not use on or around fruits, vegetables or flowers. Temporary discoloration may occur on St. Augustinegrass, centipedegrass, and bentgrass lawns. Do not apply as a fine mist because of potential for injury to desirable plants.

Where to Use

Intended for use only on residential lawns including Kentucky bluegrass, perennial ryegrass, fescue, Bermudagrass (hybrid and common), 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, summer applications 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

Special Instructions

  • Protect the desirable plants in your yard by avoiding a fine mist spray, as this can drift and raises the risk for injury to surrounding species.

Watering Tips

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