    Q
    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.
    A

    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.

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

    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.

  • Asked by Laura from Stratford
    04/11/2021
    Q
    Will clover come back if I use Bonide Weed Beater Complete?
    A

    Undesirable weeds such as clover will take time to eliminate from your lawn. Using products like the Bonide Weed Beater Complete are great for pre and post emergent control in one product, however this particular product is not labeled to prevent clover, and only will suppress existing clover rather than control it. If you can tell us what type of lawn you have that the clover is coming up in, and how large of an area you would be treating, we would be happy to find more suitable products for your needs.

    Q
    Can I apply Bonide Weed Beater Complete after using a liquid post-emergent weed killer without killing my St. Augustine grass?
    A

    Since the product contains a post emergent ingredient, whether you can apply Bonide Weed Beater Complete after another post emergent product application really depends on which other herbicide you are using.  In general herbicides applications do have a repeat treatment time that could be 2 weeks or 30 days or longer.

  • Asked by Gerald from Mesquite Tx

    Q
    What are the spreader settings that I need to use when applying Bonide Weed Beater Complete to the lawn?
    A

    Unfortunately we do not have the spreader settings for that specific combo and the manufacturer does not list that spreader on their bag. Due to the thousands of granules on the market and just as many different types of spreaders, you will want to calibrate your spreader to the product you are using and its application rates.

    Please view our How to Calibrate Your Spreader HERE for a tutorial on how to do this.

  • Asked by Victor from Oak Point, Texas

    Q
    Does Bonide Weed Beater Complete kill burrs and stickers?
    Looks like they starting to come up but want to avoid before the seeds drop.
    A

    Bonide Weed Beater Complete is labeled to suppress lawn burweed as a post-emergent, but not sandbur/sandspur. So you first need to determine exactly which plant(s) you are targeting since these will require different active ingredients.

     If you need a product labeled to control lawn burweed, you may use a product such as Fertilome Weed Free Zone instead. Please be sure to review the product label for more information, complete application instructions, and to be sure your grass type will be tolerable.If you are targeting sandbur/sandspur, then we need to know the kind of turgrass you have to know if there is a product that will work as a selective post-emergent for you.

    You may use a pre emergent such as Pendulum 2G Herbicide to prevent both sandbur and lawn burweed from coming up in the future. You may view the full product label here.
