Applications for Safer® Brand Moss and Algae Killer and Surface Cleaner, Ready-to-Use
For Structural Applications:
For best results, moisten area to be treated with fresh water before applying product. Spray area at a rate of approximately 1 gallon per 100 sq ft of overgrown surface. Avoid spraying when precipitation is expected. Spray affected area to wet thoroughly. Treated mosses, algae, lichens, and liverworts discolor quickly and will dry and slough off naturally, making physical removal unnecessary. Discoloration of treated mosses, algae, lichens, and liverworts take longer under cool conditions.
For Growing Containers and Hardened Bark of Trees:
Spray affected area to wet thoroughly. Use on ornamental trees only. DO NOT APPLY Safer® Brand Moss and Algae Killer and Surface Cleaner to fruit trees, foliage or green bark of conifers or broad leaf plants.
For Mosses in Lawns and Turf:
For best results, moisten area to be treated with fresh water before applying product. Avoid spraying when precipitation is expected. Spray affected area thoroughly. After 30 minutes, rinse sprayed areas lightly with clean water, then withhold water for two days. Do not treat turf when temperature exceeds 85°F.
PERSISTENT MOSS GROWTH ON LAWNS is symptomatic of too much shade, acid soil, and poor drainage. If several sprayings do not reduce moss problem it may be necessary to reduce shade, aerate and lime the soil.
NOTE: Treated areas may be temporarily slippery. Safer® Brand Moss and Algae Killer and Surface Cleaner may leave white residue on cement, brick or dark-colored shingles. This residue may be removed with vinegar.
