    Q
    Can I transplant fully grown daylilies into Snapshot treated soil?
    I have a newly tilled weed-free bed that I want to treat with Snapshot and then move mature daylilies from a weedy bed to the new bed.
    A

    We would recommend to wait several weeks to move the day lily after Snapshot application. Please be cautious because the flowers will be stressed from transplanting.

    Q
    Will Snapshot work on hybrid cattails in a marsh?
    I have a small marsh on my property. It has a large amount of invasive cattails that are well established in the marsh. Can I use Snapshot to help control the cattails? If so, when should I apply? I live in Minnesota so winter is coming.
    A

    No, Snapshot 2.5 TG is not labeled for use in marshes. We would recommend using Rodeo Herbicide. It is safe for use in bodies of water and will eliminate cattails. 2.5 Gallons will cover up to 5 acres. The mixing ratio is 2 and 2/3 fluid oz. Rodeo per gallon of water.  Be sure to use a surfactant for harder to kill weeds. These products can be mixed together and applied directly to the weeds.

    Q
    How frequently can I apply Snapshot 2.5 TG?
    I spread Snapshot over a large area today that has lots of weeds. When will I need to apply again? My weeds include Dandelion, wild onions, Thisle, clover & tall grasses. The bank is steep, eroded & difficult to walk on. Dandy's are just blooming now. This bank faces east & has a few evergreens & hardwoods. It's about 100 yds. long & 20 yds. at one end & triples that height at the other end. I use spread rite gravity flow hand spreader. It covers about a 3' spread. Thank you, Katrina

    Q
    I have a wildflower garden primarily of zinnias and cosmos. Will Snapshot prevent germination of those seeds?
    A

     

    Since Snapshot 2.5 TG is a pre-emergent, meaning that it prevents seeds from germinating, you should not plant any seeds you want to grow and germinate for at least 1 year after applying per the product label.

    Q
    Is Snapshot 2.5 TG safe to use on Zoysia grass?
    Does it come in a smaller size?
    A

    Snapshot 2.5 TG cannot be used on lawns.  Snapshot 2.5 TG is meant to be used in landscape beds and around trees. We do carry pre-emergent herbicides and post-emergent herbicides for your lawn. Please let us know the type of turfgrass you have and what weeds you are targeting and we can help you select a product that will fit your needs.

  • Asked by Jim from Mapleton, Illinois

    Q
    Which pre-emergent products do you recommend for over-the-top application of Liriope Muscart 'Big Blue' ?
    I have 500 recently planted bare root Liriope plants and 3500 established (one to four year old) Liriope plants. I also have a large number of Ajuga (Burgundy Glow I think) plants that have no spaces between the plants (except for multiple types of weeds!). Please recommend pre-emergent and post-emergent products that can be applied over these plants that will help minimize weeds without harming the Liriope and Ajuga. Thank you!!
    A

    Snapshot 2.5 TG is one of our most popular pre-emergent herbicides for use around ornamentals and ground covers, and several types of liriope are listed as tolerant on the product label. These plants would need to be established before applying the Snapshot or most other pre-emergent herbicides. A popular post-emergent for use around liriope is Fusilade II Herbicide, which will target grassy weeds. Always read the product label before purchasing and applying herbicides to ensure that it will fit your needs.

    Q
    Can you apply Snapshot twice, in Spring and Fall?
    I applied early this spring, it worked great but now the weeds are coming back Can I apply a second application at the end of July/ August
    A

    Yes, you could apply Snapshot more than once during the year in accordance with the product label. Fall applications will help control winter weeds such as poa annua. Repeat applications at 150 lb per Acre and higher should not be made sooner than 60 days after a previous application of Snapshot 2.5 TG. Do not apply over 600 lb per Acre total of Snapshot 2.5 TG within a 12-month period. Be sure to follow label precautions in areas where you may intend to transplant or grow other plants in the future.

  • Asked by Forrest from Conyers, Ga

    Q
    Will applying Snapshot 2.5 TG in spring over a bed of dormant ferns prevent them from emerging?
    I have been using Snapshot on my "moss lawn" with excellent effect and no damage. I have several large areas of native ferns that have emerged in areas where I have cleared invasive plants. I would like to spread the pre-emergent before the weeds start to show up the spring but don't want to prevent the ferns from erupting. Does the reproductive biology of ferns allow them to reproduce (or whatever they do in the spring) if Snapshot has been applied to the soil beforehand?
    A

    Snapshot 2.5 TG is labeled to be used safely on the following fern species:  Australian Tree Fern, Filicoides Fern, Cypress Fern, Tasmanian Tree Fern, Japanese Painted Fern, and Tassel Fern.

    Q
    Will snapshot still work after 9” of rain over a 3 month period.
    A

    Snapshot 2.5 TG is a pre-emergent herbicide that needs to be activated with about 0.5 inches of rainfall or irrigation. If you are expecting extremely heavy rains, then it would be best to delay your application so that your barrier is not disturbed. Snapshot should be activated within 3 days of application for best results. Repeat applications at 150 lbs per Acre or higher should not be made sooner than 60 days, per the product label.

    Q
    Crabgrass control in ground cover
    Hi, I contacted you last year about several issues in my ground cover juniper bushes. You suggested Snapshot and that helped alot. My problem is I also have crabgrass in this ground cover and while it controlled most weeds, it didn't help at all with crabgrass. Is there another product you can recommend that I can use in addition to the Snapshot that would be better for the crabgrass? I don't want to kill the ground cover just control weeds and crabgrass. What is the best month to apply the pre-emergent for east Tennessee? I think last year I spread it at the end of March.
    A

    Fusilade is a good option to use for crabgrass and other grassy weeds in juniper as directed on the product label.  As far as timing for a pre-emergent like Snapshot, it should be applied before soil temperatures reach 55 degrees.  If the Snapshot did not prevent the crabgrass it sounds like it was applied too late.  You may also contact your local cooperative extension office to determine the correct timing of the application as this will vary greatly from region to region.

  • Asked by Joann from Monroe, Ct

    Q
    Will Snapshot kill Geranium macrorrhizm 'Bevans Beauty'?
    A

    Snapshot is a post-emergent herbicide only, so it is not made to kill any existing plants. Geranium cinereum (ballerina) is listed as intolerant of over-the-top Snapshot applications, while the common weed Carolina geranium is prevented from germinating by using Snapshot. Geranium incarnum and Geranium subcaulescens are listed as tolerant plants of Snapshot. Since the exact species you mention is not listed as either tolerant or intolerant, we would recommend testing over a small area before treating around a large area of this groundcover, or selecting a different product for your needs.

    If you would like to tell us more specifically which plants you are wanting to kill/prevent and which are the desirable plants, then we can better assist you.
