    Q
    Is there an expiration date for Hi-Yield weed killer?
    A
    Insecticides and Herbicides do not have an expiration date.  Most all insecticides and herbicides are made to last for years and years on the shelf.  Most all will last at least 5 years as long as you keep the lid on tight and keep it out of direct sunlight and areas of high heat.  You should shake the bottle to prevent settling of active ingredients every few months to extend the life of the product in the bottle.

    Q
    Amount of 2,4-D per gallon of water in hand sprayer?
    A
    It depends on how much you are trying to treat.  One pint of 2,4 D will treat 1/4 acre of land and should be applied in at least 4 gallons of water over 1/4 acre.  This works out to be about 3 ounces per 1000 square feet.  It really doesn't matter how much water you use, but the 3 ounces has to be applied over the 1000 square feet.

    05/21/2014
    Q
    Will Hi-Yield 2,4d kill crabgrass or nutsedge?
    A
    Hi Yield 2, 4-D is not labeled to kill/control nutsedge or crabgrass as it is primarily used for more common broad leaf weed control. Due to nutsedge being a difficult weed to control, often you need a very specific product just for the nutsedge in the yard and will need to use something like Sedgehammer. If you have warm season grasses (with the exception of St Augustine grass) Dismiss South will control broadleaf weeds, crabgrass and nutsedge. If you would like to give us the type of lawn you have, how much area you are looking to treat, and if there are any other weeds you are looking to target in particular, we can try to find a product best suited to your specific needs.

  • Asked by Tom
    04/06/2011
    Q
    How do I kill wild onions in my lawn?
    I have a two acre lot in west Tennessee on what used to be agricultural land. I can't afford to seed or sod the whole thing. The front yard is not too bad because it has been hydroseeded with Bermuda. In the back, all we have done is mow. (Oddly, when you cut a pasture with a riding mower, it doesn't know it's not a pasture any more. . .ha ha!) We have onions out the ying yang! I've heard liming will help. That makes a little sense to me because I limed my front yard a few years ago, and the onions are almost non existent. I was looking at your Battleship III. Is this a good product to spray on my seeded/sodded areas as well as my non seeded areas?
    A
    Battleship III is a good product, but since it is 2, 4-D free it is not labeled to treat wild onions.  A product with 2, 4-D is usually suggested.  We would recommend the Hi-Yield 2, 4-D Selective Weed Killer as your best option for treating wild onions.
