Trimec or Speedzone

7 posts in this topic

I have broadleafs through out the yard and have used a hose end sprayer with weed b gone

and spot treated with a pump sprayer but that hasnt really knocked em out. I have been looking at the Speedzone and Trimec products but not sure which one to go with.

Any recomonations??

Also, what would be a good pre emmergant to spray in the fall?

Thanks

I have found that Speedzone does a pretty darn good job, but Trimec has worked better on my dandelions. Speedzone took out my clover and creeping charlie, though, so I have really liked it. Plus, it is less offensive to work with (smells much better and doens't leave the brown residue).

I would spray the Speedzone with the hose end spraying and spot spray anything that it doesn't kill with Trimec.

Pre-emergents are used in the spring.

The weeds that a pre-emergent will control will just die in the fall once there's a hard freeze anyways.

Trimec will work better than Speedzone.

You guys that are saying Trimec, do you mix it exactly like it says or do you mix it a little richer?

Follow the label for whatever chemical you're using.

The mentality of "well, if 3 oz works good, then 5 oz will work better" not only pollutes the earth, but just flat out wastes money.

It would be like having a hang nail, and saying to yourself "well, one bandaid helps the pain of bumping it, so I'm going to put 3 on, that'll really make it feel good".

I use Trimec and have never mixed it rich....

My neighbors mixed theirs rich once after asking what we used and they didnt have a single weed after....but then their grass died too!

Mix it like the bottle says and you will be very very satisfied with trimec

    • Just use plain old spray paint in a can. I've done it many many times and seems to stick really nice. Nothing special either I can't even tell you the brand because I have no clue. But as mentioned doing 2-3 light coats helps.
    • no expert here, but heat doesn't rise. heat radiates in the direction of least resistance (R value). warm air or water rises because it is less dense than colder air or water.  If you don't insulate you will be heating the ground under your cabin and the earth is a very large heat sink $$$. get some info from an expert in the radiant field as far as tube diameter, spacing, water temp, manifolds, length of runs, and so on. it varies on amount of windows (solar) ceiling height and room type (bed, bath, living area,  storage etc.). once you pour over the tubing you get to live with it. I did my own Home 15 years ago and got some good advise (wish I would have taken it all)
    • Sonar works from above, cameras need to be submerged. What am I missing here?
    • I've also had good luck spray painting PVC.  Biggest thing I found is to do lots of light coats, the PVC makes the paint want to run in a hurry.
    • I believe you can do this with the Lowrance HDS 9 and above.
    • I'll go with another loss in overtime.
    • Calling a win tonight, it's going to happen!
    •   You'll probably run into plenty of "experts" among the experts, too...   Floor heat is nice, but definitely not the best option if you're looking for the best efficiency, since it is a slow recovery system.  If you were looking for efficiency and lowest cost, I would suggest looking into a mini-split heat pump to complement the gas furnace if you have off-peak available.   (Disclaimer: Not an expert either, but I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express a few times.)      
    •   Same here. I have 3 of them. Use them in the SUV, Boat, Snowmobile, and Dual Sport bike. They seem to work better on my sled in the winter with no issues at all over my old ifinder which would eat batteries in the cold. They are discontinued but you can still find them out there on the List or bay once in a while. I like them as they are a crossover and can be used on the road or with a lake map which is the main thing I use them for. Wish they would bring something like it back.
    • Ridiculous... but it would work.  Sorry to offend, guess I don't get quite so fired up about concrete.
