Weedol Rootkill Plus Weedkiller

Q1. How long does Weedol Rootkill Plus Weedkiller take for the weeds to die?
A1. You may seem some initial reaction within a day or so, however, weed death happens within 14-28 days in good growing conditions. In cool weather weed control can take longer.
Q2. Why is there a difference in the water volumes when using the tubes with a sprayer or watering can?
A2. A watering can uses approximately 5 times more water than a sprayer, hence the difference in water volume. If treating annual weeds with a sprayer add 1 tube to 1 litre of water and apply to 30sqm, with a watering can add 1 tube to 5 litres of water and apply to 30sqm.
Q3. What happens if it rains 2 hours after application?
A3. If rain occurs shortly after application then it is likely that most of the Weedol Rootkill Plus Weedkiller will be washed off thereby lessening its effectiveness. We advise treating weeds on a dry calm day when there will be at least 6hrs of dry weather following application. This allows the leaves to absorb the weedkiller and ensure you get the best results.
Q4. When can I plant/sow seeds after using Weedol Rootkill Plus Weedkiller?
A4. Wait 7 days for the weedkiller to kill all parts of the weed before cultivation followed by seed sowing or planting. Once the weedkiller comes into contact with the soil it is rapidly inactivated leaving no residual action.
Q5. Can I keep some diluted concentrate to use later in the year?
A5. We don’t recommend this as the liquid will lose efficacy after a few days. Only mix enough to spray for that days treatment, it’s not good practice to store pesticides in unmarked containers. Ready To Use products contain stabilisers to allow you to use today, tomorrow or 2 months time with no loss of efficacy, concentrates to not contain these stabilisers.

A6. We advise to keep children and pets off the treated area until the weedkiller has thoroughly dried onto the weeds. Store all pesticides in a secure place.
