LEARN how to control weeds

Weeds growing in driveways and around buildings, yards and storage areas are unsightly, often create difficulty for access create a major fire risk, and harbours snakes and vermin. Mowing, slashing line trimming and cultivating are all mechanical means of dealing with weeds however the weeds are soon back and you have to keep going back and wasting your valuable time to deal with them.

Using glyphosate based weed killers: 

Most people know about using Round Up and other glyphosate based products. 

Glyphosate based products are often referred to as " knock down"  weed killers as they kill existing weed growth only. New germinations of weeds seeds are not controlled which means that regular spraying is needed to keep areas free of weeds. It is not unusual to have to repeat spraying up to 5 times per year to maintain areas where bare ground is desired. Strategic use of soil active herbicides can significantly reduce the frequency of spraying and the amount of glyphosate used in a season.

Long lasting bare ground weed control

In areas where you wish to maintain bare ground such as gravel areas and yards, fence lines, driveways there is a better alternative. You can use a long lasting soil active product to control weeds for up to nine months after spraying. Weed Force has developed Weed Stop herbicide to address this need. 

Weed Stop is applied to bare moist ground and remains active acting on newly germination weeds for up to nine months after application.

Weed Stop works best is applied to bare, moist soil. Weed Stop is not particularly effective at controlling established weeds so If weeds are present, a glyphosate based knock down herbicide such as Evict Bio 360 should be tank mixed with Weed Stop and applied together. Click on the Control tab below to learn more.

CONTROL products to control weeds

The following options should only be used where maintaining long term bare ground weed control is required:-


If weeds are present use:

1: Evict Bio 360 and Weed Stop herbicide combination 

    This treatment will control both existing and new weed growth. Evict Bio 360 controls existing weeds and Weed Stop prevents and         future germinations of new weed seeds for up to 9 months. These products are available in the convenient Weed Stop Combo pack.


If NO weeds are present use :

2. Weed Stop herbicide alone

       Weed Stop can be applied alone directly to bare moist soil where it forms a protective barrier to and acts on seeds as they germinate.

       Weed Stop will provide the longest weed control when applied to bare, moist soil. If any weeds are present on the site please refer to treatment 1 listed above. This treatment works well for most general weed situations, In some cases some tough broad leaf weeds              like fleabanes and thistles can emerge in treated areas. To combat these read on to learn how to deal with these tough problems weeds.

If broader spectrum weeds control is required to include problems like heavy infestations of thistle and fleabanes:

 3. Add Clomac herbicide as a spike in addition to treatments 1 and 2 above

     Clomac is a specialised broad leaf herbicide which provides both knock down and long lasting control of some tough broad leaf  weeds. Use this optional spike treatment to extend weed control spectrum in areas where thistles, fleabanes, and some other tough            weeds are significant problems. Clomac not only assists with the control of these weeds when established, but also is soil active controlling future germinations for many months after application. Refer to the product label for more information.

To make it easy, we have packaged all three products convenientlyinto the Weed Stop Industrial Combo pack.

PREVENT How to prevent weeds from coming back

Maintaining bare ground:

The best way to maintain bare ground is to initially control weeds and then prevent them from re-establishing. 
This can be achieved by the treatments outlined in the Control tab above.

Weed escapes:

Although Weed Stop and Clomac together control a wide range of weeds, no herbicides control all weeds.
Once these treatments have been applied, keep an eye on the area and once weeds start to come back, some spot spraying may be required to deal with the odd escape or weeds tolerant on the various herbicides. Evict Bio 360 or other glyphosate based weed killer is the generally best standby product to mop up any weed escapes.

Maintenance/re-treatment:

As seasonal conditions varyand weeds vary in sensitivity to herbicides, monitor the area and when weeds start to reappear consider re-appling Weed Stop as a maintenance treatment. As mentioned previously, It is far better to maintain bare ground than to allow weeds to re-establish and then try to reclaim the area.

SPRAY tips and hints

Always refer to the product label to determine the suitability of the product for your intended purpose.

Accuracy is the key to the safe and effective use of weed killers. 

Calibrate your sprayer to know how much water it will apply to a given area. In this way you can accurately determine the appropriate rate of weed killer required to be mixed in the sprayer tank.

You can learn more about this topic in the Weed Force Library.

CAUTION to be aware of

Where is it not a good idea to use residual herbicides?

It is wise not to use residual in the vicinity of desirable vegetation as uptake by roots can cause damage. Also, residual herbicides must be used with caution when applying to compacted surfaces or drains/drainage areas wherever there is a possibility that the herbicides can be washed with water movement to areas where they could cause harm to desirable vegetation. Always read the label and follow the instructions.

ALWAYS REFER TO AND FOLLOW THE PRODUCT LABELS BEFORE USING THESE PRODUCTS
