  • Asked by Joe from Normal Ill

    Q
    Does crossbow kill hedge tree saplings less than 10 ft tall.?
    A

    Crossbow Herbicide is a vegetation management product which means it is not very selective, it will kill almost anything.  Although it will not harm a tree when used at recommended levels if it gets on the base of the tree, it will harm a tree if you spray Crossbow on the foliage. The required spray volume will increase substantially if the brush exceeds 5 feet in height. Brush over 8 feet tall is difficult to treat efficiently. Large brush or trees may be controlled better by basal or mechanical methods.

    Q
    Will Crossbow kill my Fir/ Cedar trees if I spray the back berries and poison ivy growing under them?
    A

    Very small quantities of spray, which may not be visible, may seriously injure susceptible plants; however, Fir and Cedar trees are not listed on the label as either tolerant or suseptible. We recommend to avoid overspray or spray drift to ensure the trees are not affected.

  • Asked by Chris from Lebanon, Indiana
    10/09/2015
    Q
    Will Crossbow Herbicide control horsetail?
    You state that Crossbow is labeled for horsetails. Then in parenthesis you list horseweed and marestail. Horseweed and marestail are completely different species than horsetail(rush). I do not read in your label for Crossbow anything about controlling horsetail (rush). I have heard from other sources that it is somewhat effective in control. Does Crossbow control Horsetail, scouring rush? And if so, can it be added to the label?
    A

    We do not see any listings on our website or the product label of Crossbow Herbicide that say it controls horsetails. The Crossbow Herbicide label does list annual maristail horseweed as a target weed species, however it does not list horsetail. Please be aware that we are not a manufacturer; we are a distributor and have no control over what information is on a product label. (Labels are developed by the manufacturers and must be approved by the EPA.) You may contact Dow AgroSciences at 800-992-5994 for additional assistance. 

    We do sell products that are labeled for horsetail specifically, the most popular is Sedgehammer Herbicide. Please review the product label to be sure it is suitable for your needs.

  • Asked by Bob from Yamhill, Or

    Q
    Will spraying Crossbow Herbicide onto the leaves of holly plants (and small holly bushes) adequately kill them?
    A

    Crossbow Herbicide could possibly harm holly but it is not labeled for this plant so we cannot recommend it for controlling/killing it.  Holly shrubs would need to be treated like trees, in which case you would cut the shrubs down to stumps and then treat the fresh cuts. Crossbow Herbicide is labeled for the control of most kinds of unwanted trees. On page 5 of the label you can find directions on how to use for conventional basal bark and stump applications.

    Q
    Will Crossbow work on cattails? Will it harm fish?
    A

    Crossbow should NOT be applied to water areas to treat cattails as it is extremely toxic to fish and not labeled for that usage. We do carry Rodeo Herbicide is a very popular glyphosphate herbicide for the control of aquatic weeds and plants including mature cattails.

  • Asked by Eric from Copperhill Tennessee
    05/07/2019
    Q
    Do I need to cut my field before I spray Crossbow Herbicide or wait till the weeds are dead and then cut?
    A

    For most herbicide applications including Crossbow Hebicide, you want to have no mowing for 2 full days prior to treatment and no mowing for 2 full days after treatment. This will allow the plants to readily absorb the chemical and not be stressed from mowing or reduce the plant surface that the product would be asborbed through.
