  • For best results, mow before treating weeds.
  • Do not treat when air temperatures exceed 85°F or damage to grass may occur.
  • Do not water within six hours after treatment. Poor weed control may result if rainfall occurs within six hours of application.
  • For new lawns, treat within 24 hours after seeding. On established lawns, wait three weeks after treatment before re-seeding. Once new grass has started to grow, wait until it has reached a height of 2 inches before treating. Treat as directed for newly sodded lawns if weeds are present.
  • Do not allow spray to get on vegetables or ornamental plants since injury may result. Do not spray around roots of trees and ornamentals. Clover will be damaged if sprayed.
  • Whether using a hose-end sprayer or pressure sprayer, avoid sprays that are too fine because they can drift and damage other plants.
  • If certain tough weeds are not dead within three weeks, repeat treatment. Broadcast application is not necessary; follow spot treatment directions.
  • Use of this product when air temperatures are below 60ºF may result in delayed appearance of weed control.
