Can you combine weed killer and lawn insect killer and apply both to your lawn?
In Garden Weeds
You can, but you might want to check with a garden store before you do because you can cause problems by mixing certain chemicals. They might have something already made for that purpose. "Agent Orange" was basically just a mix of two kinds of weed and woody plant killers.

The way that I have always doen it and it worked just fine was first to wet the ground real good. Then just lay the sod over it. Either roll it out if you have enough to cover hte whole area. Or you can space the sod squares every so many feet and the grass will fill in over time. You can also com…bine this with throwing down seed and cover it with straw to fill any spots that dont have sod. You have to keep the sod moist until it takes root real good. I usually water it in the morning so that the sun doesnt dry it out. I you. Good luck. It's very important to rake the soil before you lay the sod. This will loosen the top 1"-2" of soil and make it easier for the grass to root. Make sure you water it well. New sod needs 1" of water per day for the first 3 weeks after it's laid. Once it's established it only needs 1" per week for optimal growth. It pays to destroy the old one first, perhaps with roundup, and level any hollows by filling with sand (MORE)

Answer . Pesticides will also kill your beneficial organisms including your earthworms. Use good above ground sanitation that promotes good air circulation. Sprays of Bt can be used if they are eating a lot of your vegetation. Bacillus thurigenisis . also: you can use milky spore or benefical …mematodes. (MORE)
Can you recommend a weed killer that is safe to use on your lawn but does not act as a feed for the lawn?
Answer . Boiling Water. Answer #2 . I've never tried boiling water but I suspect that this will only kill the leaves leaving the root intact. If you don't kill the root the weed will re-grow.. The solution will depend on whether you are treating broadleaf weeds (Dandelion) or grassy weeds. I… would recommend products like Ortho Weed-B-Gone which comes in different types. You can spray directly on the weed without damaging the grass. Or you can use a spreader to evenly spread granular weed killer on your lawn.. I think the reason some products are a combination of weed killer and fertilizer is that the fertilizer helps promote a healthier, fuller lawn which in turn chokes out weeds.. For more on this you can go to sites lke Scott's - see link below (MORE)
Yes , weed killers can kill grass. This happenswhen the herbicide kills non-selectively on contact.
Salt and vinegar are what is in homemadeweed-killers. Salt deprives weeds of moistures and putsuncomfortable crystals in the ground whereas white distilledvinegar's acetic acid makes the ground far too acidic for weeds tosurvive.
Salt will kill any plant, including weeds. In moderation, its also a fertilizer. If you increase the salinity or salt content of the soil to a point of where its too high, the plant will use all of its water to get rid of the extra salt that it gets from the soil and will die of dehydration. The sam…e thing will happen if you or I drink sea water. I use vinegar as a weed killer. (MORE)
Answer . We use a two wheel spreader cart. We buy bags of dry fertilizer and spread it on the lawn preferably right before a rain. The spreader carts are easy to push and easy to adjust for application strength. The bags tell you how much to put on and when to apply it. Just make sure you wash th…e cart out when you're done with it and let it completely dry before you store it away. Fertilizer can rust metal very quickly.. Hope this helps. Good Luck and Good Day!

In Washington state you can buy Crossbow weed killer at McLendon'sHardware. It's not out on the floor. You have to ask for it. Theystore it in a locked cage and you'll sign your name and address toa roster to document your purchase. Its effectiveness on blackberrybushes is incredible. You can also …buy it online for a lot less. Do a google search forCrossbow Herbicide and it will pull up several places you can buyit, including Ebay. (MORE)
Weed Killers that you buy from department stores are chemicals which you use to kill pesky weeds in your garden. However, soetimes you may just pop to the kitchen and get some natural weed killers, such as: Boiling water, vinegar, bleach, salt, or even alcohol! Basically, weed killers (aka herbicide…) are substances used to kill weeds that harm your other desired plants. (MORE)
Most weed killers, even natural products, do not differentiatebetween weeds and grasses. You can make your own weed killer fromvinegar and salt, but again this will kill everything, includinggrass.
For a home owner purchase, I would recomend Bayer Advance. Most pest control products that home owners can buy are the same thing. There are about 3 types of pesticides you can buy now days. Most have a short life and are very stable to use.
The chemical inhibits or interrupts the weed's biological processes or enzyme production. The way they work is referred to as "mode of action," and there are 11 primary modes of action which would include most herbicides commonly used in the US. See the related link below for more information.
Rates may reflect time + per gallon of 'cides, gas, etc. There may be information from the American Nursery and Landscape Association or ANLA members in the particular locality in question.
Kills weeds, obviously. Most herbicides that are sold to gardeners are non-specific herbicides--in other words, the chemical solution in the jug or bottle will kill any plant that comes in contact to the chemical, no matter if it's a plant you don't consider a weed or not. It also means that it does…n't target specific types of plants (like broad-leaved plants and/or grasses), but a wide variety. How herbicides work depends on what type you are using. There are two different types; contact herbicides and systemic herbicides, both kill plants in the same basic way they either stop the plant from "breathing" or "eating". Contact ones hit the plant and kill whatever is growing above ground and systemic herbicides get sucked in by the plant, travel down to the roots and kill the plant from there. (MORE)
In the US, "weed killers" is a colloquialism for a class of pesticides called herbicides. Glyphosate (Roundup is one brand) and glufosinate (Liberty is one brand) are a couple of common examples.
A non-residual, specific, target pre-emergent or post-emergent herbicide is a weed killer that will not kill junipers. The herbicide must be applied away from direct run-off draining routes and without contact with injured root or stem tissues. It tends to be a more effective, less injurious control… measure to keep the area from the trunk to the drip zone free of vegetation and of weeds by setting down landscape fabric or spreading mulches.

Well Madre cacao (Gliricidia sepium), is well known for its insecticidal properties and use as an insect repellent (as well as a number of other medicinal uses). The second part of the answer is more difficult as you do not specify which Euphorbia would be used. In general the sap of Euphorbia ca…n range between a mild irritant to toxic - depending on the species. On the upside it is normally slightly sticky; which could possibly be put to use to cover and smother insects - although it is more likely to clog any spray device that you tried to apply it through.

I had a first hand experience of it (westland weed and moss killer). Yes it is corrosive if it contains sulpher or phosphorus or urea. I had a problem with weed killer in our home where weedkiller started to seep through its box (probably weed killer is hydroscopic). Within 3 months it had eaten awa…y gas pipe which was next to it and we had a gas leak. Note that gas pipe was copper so it corroded even copper which is usually better corrosion resistant then carbon steel. Hope it helps. Asif (MORE)
Mowing, mulching, removing, soil-drenching, solarizing, spraying, and suffocating are ways to control weeds in lawns. Weeds can indicate macronutrient and micronutrient imbalances, such as deficient iron or magnesium, insoluble nitrogen, and over-abundant calcium, so regular soil nutrient and pH ana…lyses predict the cultivational stresses that encourage establishment of undesirable plants. No plant is able to withstand the combined, frequent stress of incorrect heat, light, moisture, and nutrient levels resulting from cutting, removing, and smothering weeds. (MORE)
Usually the feed you want to give your lawn will come with instructions. Weed your lawn whenever you see weeds.
A non-residual, target-specific herbicide is a weed killer that does not kill iris. The herbicide may be either pre-emergent or post-emergent. It must not be a weed killer that impacts all vegetation in the immediate area or that remains in the environment.
I used it in the spring of 2012 on 35 acres of grazing land. It worked well for post emergent control of broad-leaf plants. I used one pint per 10 gal of water and a spray rig to apply it. The price was $55.00 for each 2.5 gal container of the concentrate. I waited 2 days before grazing.
Perhaps you mean LYE, Home and garden centers sell Lye and spreading instructions will be on the package
Yes, bleach is an effective weed-killer. But it must be applied judiciously through the use of an environmentally-friend brand and with limited applications since it also may damage and kill anything else growing in the immediate area.
For every 100 square feet of lawn, you can add half a pound ofEpsom salts to cover the lawn. Epsom salt is used as an organic wayto keep your lawn healthy.
Choosing a Lawn Care Company Choosing a lawn care company has to be donecarefully and the process may comprise a few steps. Evaluating your needs The first step of the process is to choose theright company. In order to do so, you need to know yourrequirements first. For instance, do you want a co…mpany that willjust mow your lawn once a week and do nothing more, or do you wantthem to spray weedicides and prune the larger trees also? Get recommendations and read reviews The next step is to look at the different lawncare companies and reading reviews made by their clients in orderto evaluate their performances. Since internet carries reviews oncompanies engaged in all kinds of jobs, finding reviews on lawncare companies is not going to be difficult. You must read bothindependent reviews as well as reviews published in the websites ofthese companies. The easiest way to get recommendations is toask those who have beautifully maintained lawns in yourneighborhood. If you find anyone outside the home with such a lawn,ask them for the name of the company that maintains their lawn.They will be happy to refer you to the company that does the jobfor them. Ask for quotes Once you have read a few reviews and got a fewrecommendations it is not difficult for you to earmark a few goodcompanies that could do the job of taking care of your lawn. If youdo, ask for written quotes and choose one that you think is thebest. Agree for a temporary contract Even though you think that the chosen companycould do a good job, you must sign a contract for only one year.During this time if they prove themselves to be good, you couldhave them as your permanent lawn care company. imageslawn . com (MORE)
First, let the weed crimple and die completely. Then, Rake them up and throw away. note- If using the correct weed killer they should be very easy to rake up.
Mix salt and vinegar, spray or pour it on when it is dry and wont rain for at least a day. It really works and is safer than most off the shelf herbicides. If you want to go nuts - put a big pot on your barbecue grill (outside for ventilation) and heat up a pot of vinegar and a little water, pretty …hot, but not boiling - keep adding salt and stirring in until it (salt) wont dissolve anymore. Let cool and now you have a concentrated mix. Tip: use water softener salt from a hardware store - its a lot cheaper than table salt from a grocery store and works just as good. Buy vinegar by the gallon at a bulk foods store. (MORE)
Yes. They are a part of nature that you can control yourself (by weeding or spraying your own yard), but your neighbor is not obligated to keep weeds from touching or blowing into your yard.
It kills their roots. Answer 2 Not necessarily their roots. Some weedkillers (paraquat, for example) just kill the green parts of plants. Obviously the roots may die in the process but only because the whole plant has died. Answer #3 Both answers are technically right but are missing some …information that should have been included. Herbicides (weed killers) can work in two different ways. 1 The herbicide touches any part of a plant that is above ground and kills that part of the plant but the roots may still live. 2 A herbicide is sprayed and the plant sucks it in (just like it would water) and the herbicide travels through the plant reaching the roots and then kills the plant from there. That is just a basic answer and doesn't discuss things like soil sterilents or other ways of controlling plant growth. I hope that this was helpful. (MORE)

It depends what type of weedkiller was used. if it was a total weedkiller then the lawn will have to be re-sown. If it was a contact weedkiller then the grass may re-grow.
The most important thing to do is to read the label carefully and completely before you open the container. The label contains important information including how to use the product, protective clothing that needs to be worn, the types of weeds it will control and dilution rates. With that said, …here is some general information on using weed killers: Weed killers, called herbicides, come in different forms. Some are granular and can be applied with a lawn fertilizer spreader. Some granular lawn fertilizers come with a pre-emergent or post-emergent herbicide mixed in. There are both, non-selective and selective herbicides. Non-selective herbicides are include products like "Round-Up" will kill grass and weeds. Selective herbicides will target specific weeds or grasses. Broadleaf herbicides will target weeds like dandelion, clover, and other weeds, but will not harm the grass. Most weed killers, however, are in liquid form. They will either be in concentrated form or come premixed in a ready to use solution. The concentrated forms must be diluted before they can be used. Water is most generally used to dilute the herbicide. The label will tell you how much water to use to get the correct ratio. The exception is hose end herbicide containers. These are the types of containers that attached directly to the end of your water hose and the herbicide is released into the water stream. They are easy to use, but they don't always work well. If you only have a few weeds or a small yard, you can use a small pump garden sprayer. Open the sprayer and add the amount of herbicide needed for the job. Then add the correct amount water to complete the solution. Replace the lid, which is usually the pumping mechanism, and pump the sprayer until you feel sufficient resistance. Spray the weeds so they are covered. Spot spraying the weeds is the best method. Since you are only spraying the weeds as you find them, you use less chemical and it is safer on the environment. For larger jobs you may consider a backpack sprayer. You mix the herbicide the same way, but the backpack sprayer will hold more. Since it is worn like a backpack, your arms and back don't tire as easily. I have a Solo brand backpack sprayer that I have used for several years without any problems. There is an excellent website that explains herbicide safety in detail with types of herbicides that are available plus all other aspects of lawn care. The website is called Lawn Care Academy and is found at http://www.lawn-care-academy.com/index.html Hope this helps. (MORE)
yes it does affect them, i did a science fair project and i had sweet pea plants growing and then the weed killer killed them....true story.
The effect of weed killer for the area depends upon the type of ecosystem, herbicide, and weather. A weed killer that is contact, non-residual, target-specific has little impact other than upon the weed to be eliminated. A weed killer that is residual and non-target will impact the immediate vegetat…ion. (MORE)

Lawn weed killers do not kill grass because the chemical in that lawn herbicide has been developed so that it only targets broad-leafed plants like dandelions and not grass.
Killing the moss in lawns is simply a short term measure. Moss in Lawns is probably one of the least understood of all grass lawn problems. Treating or killing the moss is not the answer. Moss is a sign that something is basically wrong with your lawn. Too often, gardeners attempt to kill moss in la…wns without tackling the problem that actually causes it. They are helped to this decision by the huge range of 'moss killers' available at local garden centres. . There are two basic moss killers for lawns that are available - Ferrous Sulphate and Dichlorophen. One or the other is usually incorporated into typical lawns Feed and Mosskiller combinations. The latter is also available as a ready to use 'Moss Gun' for small patches. Neither do anything by way of treating the basic problem of moss in lawns. They simply kill the moss which is there. It will return If you really want to eradicate moss from your lawn, then you have to find out the actual problem that is causing it, rather than just treating it. The reasons are various, but not too difficult to isolate.. They can be one or several of the causes outlined below . Waterlogging - in winter or summer. . Poor feeding regime - usually denoted by light green grass. . Acid soil - carry out a test. . Shaded Lawns - overhanging trees or large shrubs. . Mowing lawns too close - a common cause, for it weakens the grass - allowing moss to take hold . Drought - if severe enough to harm or kill the grass. Not to be confused with a bit of summer-browning . Sandy - free-draining soils. This can weaken the grass and allow moss to take over. Some mosses are quite happy in these conditions. . Compaction - continued use by children and pets with no remedial attention by way of aeration in the Autumn. Generally, lawns that are well maintained - which includes being well fed, cut properly, aerated and not allowed to develop thatch - then the problems which result in moss will not occur in the first place. Moss can rarely compete with strong growing grass in lawns. It is allowed to develop and take a hold when the grass growth is weak. Get the grass growing properly and the likelihood is that your lawn will not suffer from moss problems. Treating small areas of lawn moss can be carried out with a moss killer containing Dichlorophen. After a couple of weeks, you can rake out the dead moss and re-seed. If you need to use a feed for the area, it is better to feed the whole lawn in order to avoid patchiness! Assuming that you have inherited a lawn with a moss problem, you should carry out the following maintenance regime - rather than simply treating the moss which is there. (The details of all operations are to be found elsewhere in this section. Quick fixes just do not work, other than to kill the moss which is present.) Unless you tackle the underlying problem, the moss will return! . In Spring, apply a Ferrous Sulphate based moss-killer to the whole affected area. . Two weeks later, rake out the dead moss. . Re seed the bare areas . Early summer, apply a lawn fertilizer to get the grass growing again . Mow the lawn properly, regularly, throughout the summer - NOT too short . Keep the lawn well watered i n drought conditions to allow the new grass to keep growing. . Take note of any areas of dense shade on your lawn, and try to minimize this if possible. . In Autumn, give the lawn a good raking or mechanical scarifying, and aerate. . Apply top dressing at this time if the lawn is either uneven, or in need of an organic 'injection'. Particularly useful on weak sandy soils. . Carry out a soil test at some stage in the summer/autumn to assess the acidity of the soil. If in need of adjustment, then lime can be applied in the autumn. . Keep off lawns in the winter months in order to avoid compaction of the surface. If by the autumn, your lawn is growing well, then most if not all of the moss in your lawn will have been controlled or even eradicated. Further spot treatments may be needed, or maybe even a full treatment for most lawns again the following spring. . Dry soil is susceptible to mosses which tend to grow in upright habit with small leaves. . Damp, compacted and waterlogged lawns usually results in mosses that have a creeping habit. . Cushion habit mosses usually state that you are mowing the grass too short. . First signs of moss taking hold in this generally uncared-for lawn. It has a build-up of thatch, and has been lacking in proper care and attention resulting in poor grass that leads the way open to moss taking over. The maintenance regime as outlined above for moss in lawns would do much to alleviate this problem. Simply treating or killing the moss in your lawn is not the answer. (MORE)
Most lawns are composed of grass; anything other than grass is considered to be a weed. If you have planted flowers or decorative plants of any kind on the edge of the lawn, once again, anything other than what you planted would be considered to be a weed.
Yes, it is a pupae, or a juvenile stage before it becomes an adult insect.
Yes , white distilled vinegar works as aweed-killer even though not all other types of vinegar do. It isthe acetic acid in white distilled vinegar that makes the soil tooacidic for most neutral or alkaline pH-loving vegetation.
Your weeds are 'eating' all the nutrients meant for your grass so they are healthy and your lawn isn't. I suggest pulling them out and making sure ALL the roots are removed. :)
By the time common weed killers are carried to the water table the contaminants have usually been filtered by the ground. If you have never drunk this before you should always have it tested by a lab first
Depends on the weed-killer, but generally the answer is 'no', unless you want that grass dead as the weeds.
I think that's an EC (contains emulsifier i.e. solvents) your bestbet is a granular spread with a hand spreader or use a WP (wettablepowder/no solvents) be careful the shock of the chemical can drivethem all over the place which is why I like the granule-it releasesslowly to avoid that problem and n…o mixing (MORE)
Wait until the grass and weeds have started growing well then apply weed and feed according to instructions on the packet. If there is no growth the weed element will not work.
