Product Overview

TurfMark Blue dye spray indicator concentrate. Add a small amount to any liquid insecticide concentrate, herbicide or fungicide and see exactly where you've sprayed. Turf Mark Blue is mixed at a rate of 1/2 - 1 oz. of concentrate per 1 to 3 gallons of liquid insecticide. Turf Mark spra indicator dye is mainly used for pre-construction termite treatments to mark where the termite spray was applied, such as on wood studs or foundational wood or concrete, and with herbicides and fungicides to see where you’ve sprayed in the lawn. When applied to turf, the dye disappears within 24-48 hours. Do not use for general pest control treatments around a home as the product will stain and can be difficult to remove.

Details

TurfMark Blue dye indicator concentrate. Turf Mark Blue is mixed at a rate of 1/2 - 1 oz. of concentrate per 1 to 3 gallons of liquid insecticide.

TurfMark is mainly used for pre-construction termite treatments to mark where the termite spray was applied, such as on wood studs or foundational wood or concrete. When applied to turf, the product disappears within 24-48 hours. Do not use for general pest control treatments around a home as the product will stain and can be difficult to remove.

If you are treating the foundation studs with a product like Boracare which dries clear, an inspector would have no idea where or if the wood was sprayed. With Turf Mark Blue, the Boracare will leave a blue tint on the wood, which makes the pre-treatment easily identifiable by an inspector in the future.

    Allows you to see where you have already treated

    In the past I have wasted herbicides, etc by respraying areas I had already treated. This product allows you to see where you've covered by tinting with a bluish tint. For my 60 year-old eyes I like to mix it up a little bit stronger than the label recommends. Good product that saves me time & dollars.

    Turf Mark

    By T. on 08/21/2012

    Verified Purchase

    I purchased Turf Mark to spray a small paddock with herbicide using a back pack sprayer. I mixed it at a rate of one oz per gallon of herbicide. It made spraying the area much easier, I was able to see exactly where I had sprayed so I didn't miss or over spray any areas. My sprayer holds 4 gallons so I started using only 3 oz for 4 gallons and it still marked the grass very well. It faded within about 3 days.

    Turf Mark Blue

    The blue color contrasts just enough with the green grass to make it visible where it has been sprayed on the lawn. In sunny humid weather the color can fade within hours. So don't spray in the morning and expect to see where you sprayed and continue in the afternoon. Make your own Summer Windshield Washer Solution: Add 1/2 tsp of dish detergent and ONE DROP of Turf Mark Blue to a gallon of water. You can't tell the difference between the homemade and the stuff you pay for.

Questions & Answers

Have a question about this product?
  
Q
How do you get this Turf Mark Blue off your skin?
A
You can remove diluted Turf Mark Blue from your skin by washing the area several times with soap and water. If you should get concentrated Turf Mark Blue on your skin, you would still wash several times with soap and water and then use a bleach solution of 20 parts water to 1 part bleach to help break down any remaining dye.

Q
I made a mess with the Turf Mark Blue quart bottle. How does one use it?

I have used these two spout bottles, smaller versions, for gasoline additives. before. I had a difficult time refilling the small reservoir without getting my hands and surrounding area VERY blue.

A

We apologize that Turf Mark Blue turned out a mess for  you. Please see This video: How To which shows you exactly how to squeeze the bottome of the bottle so the product goes up the straw on the side and into the measuring cup without touching you.

Q
Can Turf Mark Blue be used without mixing it with an insecticide?

I was watching Holmes On Homes the other night and they were using a blue liquid for termites on the wood. I noticed they were using a paint brush to apply it. I just wonder if this was the same stuff? He gave it very high praise.

A
Turf Mark Blue can be used by itself without mixing it with anything other than water, however this product is a colorant only to mark where you have treated.  It does not provide any preventative or treatment qualities of termites.  However, this product is most often applied with Bora-Care, a product that is the best there is for treatment directly on wood and will protect against termites for the life of the wood.  We are positive that the product he was painting on the wood was Bora-Care, with Turf Mark Blue mixed with it so you know what was treated.

Q
Will Turf Mark Blue permanently stain concrete?

I would like to spray wood framing mounted on concrete floor but do not want permanent blue stain on concrete floor.

A

Yes, Turf Mark Blue will leave a permanent stain on concrete and studs. You would want to cover any flooring that you do not want sprayed when using Turf Mark Blue or other dyes indoors.
