I spent $140 on this to attempt to kill my dandelion-type weeds. I followed directions exactly (wet immediately before applying in sections) but it only wilted a few leaves of some of the weeds. It has been two weeks now and still not the results that were promised. I'm really disappointed because I had high hopes. It did kill some of the taller weeds. I guess a spray would have worked better. Sad.
We are sorry that you are disappointed with the results from your treatment. If you have not had the particular weed that you are treating identified, then we would suggest calling your local cooperative extension for assistance with identification and for recommendations on which products to use and at what time of year. The Extension program is an excellent resource since they will specialize in your locale: http://counties.agrilife.org/
