Avoid direct spray or drift onto desirable plants, lawn grasses, shrubs, and trees. Protect desirable plants and vegetation with a piece of plastic or cardboard. If desirable plants are accidentally sprayed, wash plants with water immediately.

*annual or perennial

This pesticide is toxic to aquatic invertebrates. To protect the environment, do not allow pesticide to enter or run off into storm drains, drainage ditches, gutters or surface waters. Applying this product in calm weather when rain is not predicted for the next 24 hours will help to ensure that wind or rain does not blow or wash pesticide off the treatment area. Rinsing application equipment over the treated area will help avoid runoff to water bodies or drainage systems.

It is a violation of Federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling. For outdoor residential use only.

STOP Do not allow people or pets to enter the treated area until sprays have dried. 


APPLICATION RESTRICTIONS  
Do not apply this product in a way that will contact any person or pet, either directly or through drift. Keep people and pets out of the area during application.

USER SAFETY RECOMMENDATIONS
Clothing and protective equipment exposed to this product should be washed in detergent and hot water. Such items should be kept and washed separately from other laundry.

Tank Sprayer (plastic, aluminum or stainless steel)
  • Add appropriate amount of concentrate to 1 gal of water.
  • Spot treat or spray evenly over 300 sq ft.

Dial-Type Hose-End Sprayer
  • Set sprayer to the “fl oz/gallon” level specified in the directions.
  • Use only enough product for the area to be treated.
  • Close sprayer, attach to hose and apply.

Concentrate Plus Water Type Sprayer
  • Determine the amount of concentrate required.
  • Pour concentrate into sprayer jar to the required “fl oz” level.
  • Add the required amount of water to the “gallons” level.
  • Replace sprayer top on jar and apply.
Step 1: Use a clean sprayer. Carefully measure and mix the amount of product and water as directed. Food utensils such as teaspoons and measuring cups must not be used for food purposes after use with pesticides.
Step 2: Spray as directed. Thorough coverage is important. Flush sprayer with clean water after each use.

AMOUNT TO USE
To kill newly emerged weeds:
3 fl oz (6 Tbsp) per gallon of water treats 300 sq ft.

For general weed control: 5 fl oz (10 Tbsp) per gallon of water treats 300 sq ft.

For best results: 7 fl oz (14 Tbsp) per gallon of water treats 300 sq ft.
1 Tbsp = 3 tsp        1 fl oz = 2 Tbsp
  • Completely cover the leaves of the target vegetation. Do not overspray.
  • A single application controls most weeds.
  • Most treated weeds usually show initial symptoms within 24 hours and complete kill in one to two weeks.
  • Protect desirable plants with a piece of plastic or cardboard.
  • If desirable plants are accidentally sprayed, wash plants with water immediately.
  • Do not mow, cut or otherwise disturb treated vegetation for at least seven days following application.
  • Do not use on or around edible feed or food crops.
  • Do not make more than two applications per year to any given area.
  • For best results, apply during warm, sunny weather (above 60°F) when weeds are actively growing and no rain is forecast for 24 hours. Rainfall or watering 15 minutes after application will not wash away effectiveness.
  • To avoid drift to desirable plants, apply when the air is calm.
  • All ornamental flowers, trees and shrubs may be planted one day after application.

GENERAL WEED CONTROL: Use along fences, paths, patios, sidewalks, curbs and driveways, and around ornamental trees, shrubs, flower beds, plantings and buildings. Use for trimming and edging landscapes. Do NOT use for spot weed treatment in lawns, since Spectracide® Weed & Grass Killer Concentrate2 kills all green plants, including lawn grasses.

SPOT TREATMENTS:
Spray directly on actively growing weeds in and around flower beds, ornamental trees, shrubs, fences, driveways and walkways.

LANDSCAPES: For use in preparing areas for planting of ornamentals, trees, shrubs, desert landscapes, rock gardens, flower beds or similar plantings. Treated areas can be replanted one day after treatment.

FOR LAWN RENOVATION/REPLACEMENT:

  1. Determine size of area to be treated — measure length and width in feet, then multiply to determine coverage area in square feet (length x width).
  2. Use this product to remove the old lawn and existing weeds and grasses.
  3. For best results, apply in spring or fall, when daytime temperatures are at least 60°F.
  4. If the lawn is dry, water lawn every other day for a week before applying this product.
  5. Do not mow for seven days before or after treatment.
  6. Use 7 fl oz (14 Tbsp) per gallon of water for each 300 sq ft of area to be treated.

  • Apply seed according to directions on seed package, or install sod. Grass seed must have good contact with soil to germinate and grow.
