Directions for Use:


Shake well and use as provided for spot treatment of weeds. Ensure thorough wetting and complete coverage of all unwanted vegetation. Do not apply during windy conditions that will carry spray to undesired vegetation. (Reminder: Safer® Brand Weed and Grass Killer will not travel through the soil to other plants). Only the plants directly contacted by the herbicide spray will be damaged.

Use on Weeds:

This product will control most young, succulent and actively growing weeds. Several treatments may be necessary to control grasses and established weeds. Maturing or woody weeds are less susceptible and may not be killed. This product will not kill all perennial weeds but will result in top kill and suppression.

Weeds and grasses emerging after application and regrowth from perennial weeds after top kill will not be controlled without reapplication. Under some conditions, tough weeds like Bermudagrass, Canada thistle and bindweed will show signs of regrowth after several weeks. Should this occur, retreat with Safer® Brand Weed and Grass Killer. This product is non-selective and non-residual. It will not move through the soil to injure nearby plants. Treated areas can be seeded two days after application.

For Best Results:

Apply to weeds during early periods of growth and during warm, dry weather. Herbicidal action is rapid with effects visible within hours. The speed at which this product works is affected by climatic conditions. For most rapid kill, apply in warm, dry weather. This product may cause white residue on some types of brickwork and concrete. This residue will wear off after a few weeks.

All About

All About Weeds

Unwanted weeds can cause harm in your garden if left unattended. They can crowd out the flowers and vegetable plants you have worked hard to cultivate.

Weeds can also cause damage to sidewalks and cause cracks in driveways and other outdoor surfaces; and let’s not forget how weeds can take over a backyard.

Weeds are typically just plants that are growing in the wrong place. Most weeds are just the natural flowers and plants that grow in your area and some may have been introduced in the past for medicinal, culinary or decorative purposes. So if you are wondering how to classify weeds, basically, if you didn’t plant it, and you don’t want it in your lawn or garden, it’s a weed.

Unwanted weeds can cause allergic reactions for some people; some of them have jagged leaves and many of them are unruly and well, they grow like weeds, taking over your garden and crowding out the plants you have spent time, energy and money on cultivating.

Control Options

Control Options for Battling the Weeds in your Yard

To control weeds, maintenance is key. If you’re looking for control options that fit into an organic gardening regimen so you can still walk in your grass and spend time in your garden without worrying about the harmful effects of chemical residuals, read about the two types of solutions for weeds that are approved for organic gardening.

Herbicidal Soap


Potassium salts of fatty acids, aka herbicidal soap works as a contact killer and will kill any weeds or grass that you spray it on. The great thing about herbicidal soap is that it won’t move through the soil and kill nearby plants. So, only the plants you spray directly will be eliminated.

It works great to kill weeds or unwanted grass within hours on sidewalks, driveways, between cobblestone walkways or outdoor pavers.

Also, spray it in your flower bed on those pesky plants you don’t want around. Just make sure you don’t accidentally spray it on your flowers, vegetable plants or other ornamentals because herbicidal soap doesn’t differentiate between plants you like and weeds you don’t like.

Use herbicidal soap as needed throughout the gardening season to keep weeds that happen to sprout up, under control.

Corn Gluten


Corn Gluten is a natural, pre-emergent, herbicide, which means it kills the roots of sprouting seeds before they can take hold so the weed will never grow. It works best if you mix it with mulch or into the soil for flower beds or apply it to the lawn then water it. If it rains heavily in the 2-3 days after the initial application, you’ll want to reapply, so watch the weather forecast. Reapply every 3-5 weeks for best results.

If you apply corn gluten in the early spring to your flower bed, vegetable garden or lawn, you’ll be greatly reducing the number of weeds you have to spray with herbicidal soap or pull throughout the growing season.

If you are planning a garden that you’ve planted from seeds, don’t use corn gluten until the flowers or vegetables you’ve planted are firmly established plants; otherwise corn gluten controls weeds throughout the season on all plant types. You can even use it on fruits and vegetable crops, up to the day of harvest.

If you love feeding the birds, but hate the mess and all the weed and grass that grows from the seeds all over the ground, sprinkle an ample amount of corn gluten into the ground below the feeder to stop those seeds from germinating.
