    Q
    You indicate not to spray Celsius above 85 degrees.
    Can Celsius be sprayed at 85 degrees even the temperature is rising and will be above that in an hour or two? In other words can I spray in the morning when it is 75 degrees and an hour later the temperature is over 85 degrees?
    A
    As long as the temperature during the application of the Celsius is not 85 degrees or above, then it does not matter what temperature it reaches mid day. The best time to apply herbicides is either early morning when dew is still fresh on the ground or late afternoon when the lawn and weeds are under less stress from the environment. The less stress the weeds are under the better they will absorb the product being used.

  • Asked by Seth from Orlando,fl

    Q
    What is the shelf life of Celsius WG? How long is the shelf life in a typical hot garage?
    Calculating the labeled max/yr and my lot size, I figure one bottle would be 4+ years worth.
    A
    Celsius should not be stored in a hot garage. Storing chemicals in hot temperatures will degrade the active ingredient and greatly reduce the efficacy of the product. When stored properly, out of extreme temperatures and out of direct sunlight, you can expect Celsius to last for about 3 years from the date of purchase.

  • Asked by Matt from Oviedo, Fl
    10/12/2011
    Q
    How many applications (gallons) does a bottle of Celsius make?
    How many applications (gallons) can you get from a single bottle of Celsius?
    A
    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. Celsius may be applied at three different rates depending on the weeds to be controlled. For the appropriate rate and species consult USE RATES FOR WEED CONTROL section on the Celsius product label. For spot applications, add the specified product rate of 0.057-0.113 oz (1.6-3.2g) to enough water to create approximately 1 gallon spray solution. One gallon of spray solution will treat up to 1,000 sq ft. For maximum weed control with broadcast applications, add non-ionic surfactant.

    Q
    What are the mixing recommendations for Celsius WG?
    I have a ortho dail N spary hose end sparyer that is 32oz how much should i mix in for a 1/8 of an acre with the sprayer dial at 1oz to a 2oz ratio
    A
    This product will not work well in a hose end sprayer because those sprayers are not accurate enough to apply the correct amount of product. You will need to use a hand pump sprayer and uniformly spray the product over the specified area.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. Celsius may be applied at three different rates depending on the weeds to be controlled. For the appropriate rate and species consult USE RATES FOR WEED CONTROL section on the Celsius product label. For spot applications, add the specified product rate of 0.057-0.113 oz (1.6-3.2g) to enough water to create approximately 1 gallon spray solution.

  • Asked by Jane from Jax Fl
    02/10/2013
    Q
    Is there a better way to measure Celsius WG other than the cup that comes with it?
    the measuring cup that comes with the product actually starts at 0.17 ounces. That is the MAX per year for 1000/ft .... it recommends 0.057 ounces and thats not on measuring cup. Am I missing something? Why such a large cup to measure when that mark you need isnt on it?
    A
    Celsius is a professional product and the manufacturer does gear it toward the professional applicator, including the measuring cup. Unfortunately we have no control over this because we do not manufacture the product. Our other customers have told us that they have been able to get small medicine syringes from the pharmacy to measure the smaller amount that they require.

    There are conversion charts on page 6 of the product label for Celsius WG Herbicide to convert the label rates to teaspoons. The 0.057 oz amount is equal to ½ teaspoon.
