    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.

  • 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.

    Q
    Will Crossbow kill sea grape bushes?
    Have a problem wit these plants, asking for a neighbor.
    A
    While the Crossbow is not specifically labeled to control SeaGrape bushes, it does contain Triclopyr which is highly used in eliminating any brush or viney type plant. It would best be applied undiluted with a paint brush or spot sprayer directly after cutting back/down the seagrape bushes to the ground. You want to chop them down as low to the ground as you can and then immediately apply the product to the freshly cut stump/vine. The product will soak in and kill the plant within a few weeks where at that point you can remove it if you need to.

    Q
    What about using Crossbow on bermuda grass?
    A
    Crossbow Herbicide  is not supposed to harm established grasses and should pose no threat on your Bermuda grass according to the manufacturer.  This being said, we always recommend treating a small area first to test the results.  As long as your grass is not stressed by drought and it is healthy the grass will not be harmed

  • Asked by Al from Pensacola

    Q
    If I spray my entire yard that has dollar weed with Crossbow Herbicide, will it kill my St. Augustine grass?
    A

    Crossbow Herbicide is labeled to be used on Rangeland, Grass Pastures, Fence rows, roadsides and non-crop areas. It is not labeled to be used on St. Augustine grass. It will likely kill it. You can use Speedzone Southern for Dollarweed in St. Augustine grass. According to the product label of Speedzone Southern: The turf tolerance to this product may vary and temporary turf grass yellowing may occur on St Augustine. Do not apply Speedzone Southern to Floratam, Bitterblue or other improved species of St Augustine. Do not broadcast or spot spray St Augustine during the fall to winter transition or if temperatures are expected to fall below 40F within 10 days of the application.

    Q
    What is the Crossbow mixture for tree girdling with diesel?
    A

    The product label for Crossbow Herbicide does not address girdling specifically, so we would not be able to give you specific advice on this application. Per the treatment instructions for Conventional Basal Bark and Stump Applications: "...Mix 4 gallons of this product in diesel oil, No. 1 or No. 2 fuel oil, or kerosene to make 100 gallons of spray mixture. Spray the basal parts of brush or trees to a height of 15 to 20 inches from the ground...For better regrowth control, cut the larger trees and treat the stumps."
