Non-selective herbicides kill any plants they are applied to, making them a smart choice if you do not know what type of weed you have in your lawn. Unfortunately, as they kill any plants they are applied to, they will also kill grass and other non-weed plants the non-selective is applied to, making them more ideal for spot treatments and small weed infestations.
Non-selective weed killers do not differentiate between plants when applied, so a non-selective product will affect any growing plant. This is why you must take great care when using this type of herbicide. Non-selective herbicides are contact or systemic. Contact herbicides kill the green tissues of the surface they touch. Systemic herbicides enter a plant at point of contact and move throughout the plant, often entering through the roots, and should be applied when plants are most vulnerable. These herbicides are post-emergent, meaning they should be applied to actively growing plants.
You can kill any plant that is causing you a problem with a non-selective herbicide. However, you’ll need to know how to use these products before applying. Here are a few facts that will help you use non-selective herbicides in the best way possible:
