I applied this with a 15 gallon sprayer towed behind my mower. It's important to first figure out how much area a full tank will cover so you know how much herbicide to put in. In my case, one tankful does about a half-acre with mower at idle speed. I saw results within a day, weeds were wilting. So far I am very pleased. No apparent damage to the turf. Be careful with this stuff, it's very concentrated. Important to get the coverage right I think.
I've used this herbicide for about 4 years and it does work on broadleaf weeds in the lawn. However, I've often made the concentrate too strong which has affected the grass, so I recommend not going over the recommended concentration.
I needed a product to spray in between my normal 3way apps with 2-4d in it. This product was more cost effective than most other options, but it did exactly what I needed, as well as putting a good knock down on some harder to control weeds.
How much Battleship III Herbicide should I use per gallon of water?
As with most herbicides the exact volume of water is not very important, you just need to be sure you are getting the correct amount of product on a specific area. In the case of Battleship the product label recommends that if you are treating larger areas that you use 3 - 4 pints of product in at least 20 gallons and at most 200 gallons of water to to treat a entire acre (1.1 oz - 1.5 oz of Battleship per 1,000 sq ft in an adequate amount of water to cover the specified area).
I had battleship sprayed around my yard, approx. 30 days later I had to have my dog put to sleep, Not sure if it was poison from the weed killer or him being 13 yrs old! Just curious because I dont want to bury another pet if I cant get another because of the spray in the yard.
Battleship III Herbicide - 2.5 gallon is not harmful to animals after it has dried. We have not had one complaint of it harming pets. If you have any further questions please contact Helena Chemical at 901-761-0050.
Mix Ratio for Battleship III Herbicide - 2.5 gallon in Backpack Sprayers?
I'd like to do spot treatment and use a backpack sprayer. What is the mix ratio for this in order to get effective control?
You want to mix 1.1 oz - 1.5 oz of Battleship per gallon water to cover 1,000 sq ft in an adequate amount of water to cover the specified area. Depending on what type of lawn you have. Please review the product label before application.
My ecology minded neighbor has fits when I have weeds, then also has fits when I spray for weeds. I do not use Roundup, but the company I contracted with does use Battleship. My neighbor believes that your product will harm her children.
As long as your neighbors children are not bathing in, playing in, drinking or in any way coming directly into contact with the mixed solution while wet and mis-using Battleship, its not going to harm your neighbors or their kids for you to treat your yard. Follow the usage instructions per the label and apply only when children or pets are not in the direct area to be treated and keep them out until the surface of the lawn has dried (maybe 30min to 2 hours).
