Do not use this product in or around vegetable gardens or in landscaped areas where young plants including ornamental bedding plants (annuals and/ or perennials), trees, shrubs, and sod will soon be planted within 6 months after treatment.
Do not allow people or pets to enter the treated area until sprays have dried.
Seed may be planted 12 months after application.
Do not use on desirable turfgrass.
Do not use over-the-top of ornamentals.
Do not apply around the root zone of herbaceous plants.
Do not allow spray to contact desirable foliage, stems, green bark, or bare roots of turfgrasses, trees, shrubs, or other listed desirable vegetation, since
severe damage may result. Apply when the air is calm to avoid spray drift onto desirable plants.
Avoid tracking product onto desirable vegetation - do not walk on treated area until the spray has dried.
If spraying near the base of established plants (plants that have been in the ground at the same location for one or more years), shield them from spray drift using cardboard, plastic, or other materials. If the spray accidentally contacts a desirable plant, rinse it off immediately with water.
Do not apply using a steel sprayer, except stainless steel.
Do not apply where heavy rainfall or irrigation can runoff into cool season lawns (e.g. Tall Fescue, Kentucky Bluegrass, Fine Fescue and Ryegrass)
USE AROUND ORNAMENTALS IN COARSE AND SANDY SOILS:
Soil conditions can affect the tolerance of ornamentals to SPECTICLE TOTAL. Excessively coarse or sandy soils may allow for downward movement of SPECTICLE TOTAL into the root zone and cause significant root damage and phytotoxicity. Coarse soils, for example, may include significant quantities of sand, gravel, decomposed granite, and ground cinders.
Apply to small and actively growing weeds. Best results will be achieved when temperatures are above 60 degrees Fahrenheit.
Thoroughly spray existing weeds and the entire area that you want protected.
A subsequent application of SPECTICLE TOTAL can be made 4 months after the initial application to extend weed control. Certain hard-to-control weeds can be re-sprayed 1 month after initial treatment only using spot treatment. The maximum applied rate must not exceed 32 fl oz of product/1000 sq ft. in a 12 month period.
Add 16 oz of product per 1 gallon of water.
Shake bottle well before use. Add appropriate amounts of water and product to spray tank.
FOR BEST RESULTS
WHEN TO APPLY
Disturbing the soil after application may reduce the effectiveness of this product by disturbing the weed preventative barrier.
Rain or watering 30 minutes after application will not wash away effectiveness.
Under drought conditions, it may be necessary to lightly water the product in. Irrigate to move the residual herbicide into the soil, but not to the point of visible runoff.
Triple rinse the spray tank and flush all sprayer components with water to remove residual product. Empty the rinse water onto bare soil or gravel.
Use SPECTICLE TOTAL in residential, commercial, as well as federal, state and local plantings of ornamentals for non-selective weed control. Apply SPECTICLE TOTAL as a directed spray only to established (rooted) plants (plants that have been in the ground at the same location for one or more years) and not to newly rooted cuttings or seedlings. For best weed control, make applications prior to mulching. Plant damage will occur if SPECTICLE TOTAL contacts foliage.
Apply SPECTICLE TOTAL as a directed spray at 16 fl oz of product / 1000 sq ft around ornamentals. When applying SPECTICLE TOTAL with a backpack sprayer, follow all above restrictions. When tank mixing with other products, it is the responsibility of the end-user/applicator to ensure that the tank-mix partner is registered in the state where the application is being made.
