Bio Advanced previously known as Bayer Advanced Brush Killer Plus Concentrate is perfect for clearing your property of unsightly stumps, nuisance plants like wild berries and kudzu, and dangerous plants like poison ivy and poison oak. The systemic action makes this product rainproof and kills tough vines and brush to the roots and is effective at controlling over 60 types of weeds and brush.
Advanced Brush Killer Plus will kill or injure all woody plants contacted. Certain warm season grasses may experience temporary yellowing when sprayed to excess. If a desirable plant (other than grass) is accidentally sprayed, immediately rinse with plenty of water.
Apply when wind is calm.
Keep people and pets off treated areas until spray has dried.
Do not apply to or around fruits or vegetables used for food.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Determine amount of spray solution to prepare – See “How Much to Use”.
Make up spray solution by following directions specific to your sprayer – See “Sprayer Types”.
Adjust sprayer nozzle to a coarse spray. Spray the weeds you want to kill until thoroughly wet but not dripping.
Use a sheet of cardboard or plastic to protect desirable plants from accidental contact with the product.
To Kill Vines:
For vines growing on desirable plants, cut the vine and treat as directed for stump removal.
To Kill Poison Ivy or Poison Oak:
Contact with Poison Ivy or Poison Oak anytime of the year can cause an allergic reaction. Handle dead plants with rubber gloves. Dispose of plants and gloves in tightly sealed garbage bags.
To Kill Stumps:
Completely cover freshly cut stump with undiluted product using a paintbrush. Do not reuse paintbrush for other uses. When discarding, wrap brush in newspaper and put in trash.
I purchased this product in the fall of 2012, to kill, out of control baltic ivy. I spayed a few times every 2 weeks. I noticed this spring that the product does work, although, I ended up pulling out the majority this spring. when the weather warms I will apply more to kill the remainder. some roots are still in the ground, and I want to make sure it all dies.
I sprayed this 3 weeks ago on every new thorn bush coming up... I looked today 4-17-2017 and it didn't affect then at all!!! As a matter of fact they look healthier than ever... like I put fertilizer on them!!! UGH!!!
Devastating herbicide that will slowly kill nice, non-target trees over the course of several years if they receive even a low dose by accident, drift, or root contamination from similar, treated plants nearby. The chemical breaks down in the soil or in sunlight, but it remains active in the woody plant until it is dead. Do not expect immediate results, but expect devastating results on both target and non-target plants. USE EXTREME CAUTION!
How long do I have to wait after it rains to apply Bayer Advanced Brush Killer Plus Concentrate?
Per the product label on the Bayer Advanced Brush Killer Plus Concentrate there is no set time frame after it rains to apply, but you would want to wait until the ground is dry and there is no water puddled up. You would also need to be sure there will be no rain or water for 4 hours after application so the product has time to dry.
Lost label. What is the right mixture for the Bayer Advanced Brush Killer Plus Concentrate?
Per the product label: Add 4 fl. oz. (1/2 Cup or 8 TBSP) to 1 gallon of water to treat up to 500 square feet. Do not apply more than 9 lbs ai/acre triclopyr (17 oz brush killer per 500 square feet) per year.
Is it effective against mature dormant trees? Someone online said to make a slit in the bark and paint it on. Is it dependent upon girdling the tree?
In order to kill a tree of any kind, you will first need to cut the tree first. Once that is done, you will use undiluted Bayer Advanced Brush Killer Plus Concentrate on the stump. This will be applied with a paintbrush. Discard the paintbrush once complete with this project.
