Weed Preventer

We wanted to take a moment to note the difference between a pre-emergent herbicide and a post emergent herbicide.  A pre-emergent herbicide is one that prevents weeds from germinating from seed when applied at the correct time.  Some of the most common options for pre-emergent herbicides include Barricade, Prodiamine, Dithiopyr, Gallery (for ornamentals), and Ronstar (for non-residential). Some products are used to mostly prevent grassy weeds such as crabgrass, while others are used to prevent a wider range of grassy and broadleaf weeds.  Please look at the label and instructions for any product you may choose to determine the best fit.  Also, feel free to contact us here at Lawn & Pest Control Supply with any questions you may have via email at info@lawnandpestcontrolsupply.com or at (877) 775-9392.  We are always here to pick out the correct application for your problem.

A post emergent herbicide is a herbicide designed to target and kill certain weeds.  There are also non-selective and selective post emergent herbicides.  Non-selective means that it will kill everything, such as Roundup and Pramitol.  A selective herbicide is one that targets certain weeds without harming the turf on the label.  Please make sure you check to see if the herbicide you choose is labeled safe on your turf grass.  Some examples of selective herbicides include Drive XLR8 (for crabgrass control), Prosedge (nutsedge control), Q-4 Plus (broadleaf, crabgrass, and nutsedge control), Triplet SF (broadleaf control), and Segment (nutsedge and grassy weed control).  These are just a few examples of the many different options that we offer and you can find post emergent herbicides here.
