Before You Apply: Do not mow for 1 to 2 days before or after application. If soil is dry, water before application. To treat entire lawn (broadcast application): Use a tank sprayer or hose-end sprayer. Measure lawn. Calculate square feet by multiplying length times width. Spray evenly over measured area.
HOW TO APPLY:
To spot treat individual lawn weeds: Use a tank sprayer and spray to wet weeds. To reduce spray drift, adjust sprayer nozzle to deliver a coarse spray.
WHEN TO APPLY:
Spray when weeds are actively growing.
Spray when temperature is below 90 F.
Spray when air is calm to avoid drift to vegetables, flowers, ornamental plants, trees, shrubs and other desirable plants.
Do not apply to newly seeded grasses until well-established (they have been mowed 3 times).
Rain or watering 1 hour after application will not wash away effectiveness.
I had a bunch of poison ivy around my back fence and this killed them on first application. I also had a bunch of vines and regular ivy growing through the fence and it killed them too. The only thing is that where the ivy or over growth is dense you may need to hit it again. I had some areas on standard ivy that it yellowed it up a bit but didn't totally kill it, but I don't know if it is ment for that use anyways. For poison ivy killing it is awesome
I used the Bonide Poison Ivy and Brush Killer BK-32. I followed the directions using a sprayer. I sprayed the serious concentration of poison ivy in our woods. I did this in a time of no-rain. I watched for two weeks. I see that the ivy has turned yellow and somewhat green yet. It is wilted but it is not dead. I was hoping for more fatal results. I suspect I may need to give the ivy a second application.
I can't really rate this product by itself. The reason being is that I used this product in combination with Drive XLR8 and Tenacity to nuke my yard this fall as a post emergent treatment. One thing I can say is the previous times I used Quinclorac by itself, some of the weeds survived (mainly the clovers). Not this time. With Tenacity taking care of the broad leaf, and Drive doing its job, Bonide took care of the rest. The combination of the 3 destroyed all the weeds in my yard, but left the remaining grass untouched, and ready to reclaim the yard.
How much Bonide Poison Ivy & Brush Killer should be used to 1 gallon of water?
For Northern Lawns you would mix 4 ounces per 1000 sq/ft and for Southern Lawns you would use 2 ounces per 1000 sq/ft. The amount of water you use is not important as that only acts as a carrier. The key is getting the right amount of product over the right amount of area, so whether you use 1 gallon or 5 gallons of water, they are both correct. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
Will Bonide Poison Ivy and Brush Killer kill poison ivy and not harm other plants like ivy?
The Bonide Poison Ivy and Brush Killer will harm ALL forms of ivy including ground ivy. You cannot select one from the other and we do not know of a product that will allow you to do this. We recommend hand pulling the poison ivy from the ground ivy with gloves on to try and eliminate it from your ground cover.
