I am having no success in getting rid of the clover in my lawn. I have
used 2 year old Clover Killer that never worked when new.
. . . . .Can anyone reccommend a tank spray type clover killer that I could
I live at 5200 ft asl and have an extremely short growing season.
. . . . Also, the only 'Broadleaf Weed Killer', I have success with I
have to mix much stronger than the directions, or it does not work at all.
And then it kills the grass too. Again anyone know of a tank spray type
Broadleaf Killer that may suit me?.
. . . . in advance thanks. . charlie
. . . .thanks for the reply.
Weed-b-Gone in the 1 gallon packaged spray kit works fine on dandelions, but
I'm not too sure how the bulk W-b-gone I mix is working. It will take a
few more days.
I mixed some older 'Broadleaf killer 1.5 stronger than directed, as the
factory directions had no effect at all. It now is a great total killer.
Don't know why the OP is having problems killing broadleaf weeds.
I've used the same product, WeedBGone for years and it's been
very effective when mixed and used as directed. It kills most
weeds in one application. Some require a second application
about 2 weeks later. I apply it with a tank sprayer.
Clover is harder to kill, but again I've used the Ortho Clover/Oxalis
killer and it's worked well.
I'll have to try that. I thought I was the only one with wild
growing in my lawn. Last week I screwed up and only mixed the Ortho
WeedBGone Max at 1/3 the strength. I didn't think it would do much of
anything. I was quite surprised. It whacked just about all the
broadleaf weeds and so far has had a severe impact on the crabgrass
too. It affected the strawberries and clover to some extent, but
not enough to kill them.
You are. Mine are toast. (on the first app, btw). =)
Grab the blue bottle, dood. I only have it, and a bottle of ready-to-spray
Spectracide non-selective (for a small strip of landscape rocks in a bed by the
street) in my arsenal this year. That's all I've used, and all I've needed to
use this year. The ONLY thing that the Bayer doesn't work on, is nutsedge. It
hasn't been much of a problem in my yard this year, and I just pull it from
beds. I'm glad, too. Sedgehammer's too frigin expensive to keep on hand. =)
I just applied the last 2 grams of Permit from a small amount that a
friend had given me years ago. Those few grams went a long way.
So just started looking for nutsedge treatment and was surprised how
expensive it is. It's like $10 or $20 a gram. Seems it's priced
like the stuff the guys on the street corners sell. I think I'll need
application because I let it get out of control last year.
