Product Overview

Weed Beater Complete is a selective post-emergence and pre-emergence herbicide for control of annual grasses, sedges, and broadleaf weeds on residential lawns. It works by neutralizing acid content, this systematic and methodical action from the roots up and the leaves down disrupts photosynthesis and represses cell division. It also works evenly well on warm and cool season grasses making it a cost-efficient choice. This solvent-free formula has a stronger alkalinity due to a higher concentration, emits no foul ammonia odor and is low foaming.

    Not what I hoped for

    By Michael on 06/23/2018

    Verified Purchase

    To give an honest review I used this product 3 times in the past year- last fall, pre-emergent, this spring, pre-emergent and 2 weeks ago post emergent and the results are mixed. It did control some crabgrass, but many of the other weeds advertised as being controlled are actively growing, especially white clover. I had to then purchase Triad and spot spray large areas to kill them. Will buy another product to use in the fall.

When is the best time to apply Bonide Weed Beater Complete?

We just moved to upstate WA and have ALOT of clover we can't seem to get rid of. Want to prevent this clover from rearing its ugly head next year. What is best to prevent it and when to apply and any recommendation for killing what we have now? Tried weed killer for lawns but it didn't kill the clover.


Bonide Weed Beater Complete would not be a product to use for preventing clover, only in killing it as a post-emergent.  Ferti-Lome Broadleaf Weed Control with Gallery would be good for preventing many types of clover.  For post-emergent control, it is best to treat clover in the spring before temperatures reach 80 degrees or higher.  Depending on your grass type, Q4 Plus Turf Herbicide would be a good product to use and is safe for most cool season lawns.  Please refer to the product label to confirm your grass type is listed as tolerant.

Application timing for pre-emergents will vary by region and the best person to ask about application timing is your local master gardener who works at your local cooperative extension office.

What are the spreader settings for Scott’s Speedy Green 1000 spreader when using Bonide Weed Beater Complete?

Unfortunately the Bonide Weed Beater Complete product label does not provide spreader settings for the Scott's Speedy Green 1000. For tips calibrating your spreader, we have a great video on our Granular Spreaders page. Just scroll down to the bottom of the page to see the video.

Almost all fertilizers, herbicides, insecticides, etc have treatments in amounts of so much product per 1000 square feet.  So if you can figure out what your walking speed is then you know anytime you apply any product that calls for so much of it per 1000 square feet, you always set your spreader on this setting.
