This Trimec® product is a combination of four proven weed killers:

  • 2,4-D
  • mecoprop-p
  • dicamba and
  • carfentrazone-ethyl.

Hand Spray – Spot Treatments

To mix 1 gallon put in 0.75 – 1.5 fl. oz. or 1.5 – 3.0 Tbsp to treat 1,000 sq. ft.

Broadcast Spray

  • Broadcast (entire areas) applications or follow-up applications at 2-6 week intervals are recommended for more mature weeds, for dense infestations, and for adverse environmental conditions.
  • Spot treatments during summer may be appropriate for sparse infestations, or as a follow-up treatment, or any time broadleaf weeds are susceptible.
  • Irrigation: Do not apply this product immediately before rainfall or irrigation. Rain or watering within 4 hours after treatment may reduce effectiveness.
  • Mowing: Delay mowing 1 to 2 days before and after the application of this product.
  • For St. Augustine grass – apply 0.75 – 1.5 oz. per 1,000 SF

Front Yard

  • At 1 oz./1,000 SF for 12,000 SF (with buffer to not overspray into beds/plants) will need 12 oz.
  • E-W is 160 feet and N-S 75 feet to safely be back from plants; i.e. staying back to not spray into beds or Sunset Magic Crapes.
  • Sprayer does a 40″ (3.33 ft.) So 160×3.33= 533 SF per swath. So a round should spray 1.1 gallons and cover 80″ or 6’8″ plus the overspray. At 75′ wide and 6’8″ per round it will take 11 rounds.

Back Yard – 2,700 SF
Small Garden Yard – 5,400 SF
Old Garden 42,000 SF
