Re: CULT:Herbicides


Betty--

It really isn't too good to be true. Stinger is effective on most broadleaf
weeds,
yet does not harm irises, daylilies, or peonies. It is particularly
effective on
thistle, dandelions and clover-- I have actually sprayed Stinger and within
2 hours the clover and dandelions are starting to noticeably  droop.
Stinger
needs to be sprayed on actively growing weeds for the best results. Thistle
is
much more susceptible while still small rosettes. The younger the weeds the
better
the results. If you can find Stinger, you will want to buy it in quarts. A
little goes a
lomg way--1/4 to 1/2 oz. per gallon will spray a lot of weeds. It's good
that it only
takes a little too, because Stinger costs around 140$ per quart. We use it
in
conjunction with Surflan, a pre-emergent.
