You can use Spectracide Weed Stop for Lawns if you have a parrot that grazes on treated grass; just keep your bird off treated areas for at least 24 hours after spraying.

Hi Paul. It depends on your grass type. Check the first table on the back label for your lawn variety -- it will range from 4 tsp to 2 Tbsp per gallon of water. http://cdn.spectrumbrands.com/~/media/Spectracide/Files/Product%20Labels/Weed%20Stop/071121958341.ashx

Spectracide Weed Stop for Lawns Concentrate will not control dallisgrass -- spot treat dallisgrass with Spectracide Weed & Grass Killer instead (being very careful not to allow the spray to contact desirable grasses or plants).

Hi Blair. You should start to see wilting and yellowing within just a few hours of spraying. You can expect to get complete weed kill within several days to a week. Applying in warm (but less than 85 degrees), sunny weather will give you best results. Good luck!

Question

How much to apply to a weed

Hello,

I'm hoping to get the answer to a quick technical question if you don't mind? I'm planning to use a 4gal backpack sprayer purchased at Home Depot to spray my property. I will use water mixed with concentrate to your specs. My question is this, how wet do the weeds need to get with the product? I plan to spray the whole lawn but want to know how much liquid is required on the plant to kill it? I'm using it on dandelions, clovers and creeping Charlie primarily. Hope you can help me.

Thanks in advance,

You don't have to saturate the weed as long as you hit it with the spray your fine. Creeping Charlie may take a few applications to totally rid your lawn of it.

Hi Jean. You'll find English on the first part of the label, followed by Spanish. The mixture rate depends on the type of grass you have.

Question

Can I use Weed Stop to destroy Lily of the Valley?

Previous owner had planted Lily of the Valley around an oak tree on the lawn and never did anything to keep it from spreading onto the lawn. Now it is coming up in the lawn quite a distance from where it was originally planted. I would like to kill the Lily of the Valley without killing the grass. Will Weed Stop do this effectively?

Hi John. It likely will kill the lily of the valley, but we don't recommend spraying within the dripline of your oak tree. You could also carefully spot treat the lily of the valley with Spectracide Weed & Grass Killer (being careful to keep it off the grass) -- you can use that product around (but not on) ornamental trees and shrubs.
