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

    • Talked to one of their guys at the Ice Show last week,  what I believe was their entry level w/ramp (like 6.5' x 12') door was over $13k.   I thought it was quite pricey with really not much for any options.  Quality appeared to be good but way more then I would spend for it.  Their biggest selling point is the light weight and pounds per square inch on the ice.   They do have  channels on the inside to run you wired through if you want to add items.   The inside was extremely bright - almost to bright for my eyes.   I believe they said they are located in Litchfield, MN.
    • I would give your first statement 5 Pinnochios.  The first tax increase on people making less than $200k he signed was only 16 days into his first term.     "1. A 156 percent increase in the federal excise tax on tobacco: On February 4, 2009, just sixteen days into his Administration, Obama signed into law a 156 percent increase in the federal excise tax on tobacco, a hike of 61 cents per pack. The median income of smokers is just over $36,000 per year."       And then, of course, the big one is Obamacare, which was ruled a tax by the Supreme Court, and affects many taxpayers under $200,000.
    • Trump is way ahead of you there buddy.    
    • The only tax change that occurred was allowing the Bush tax cuts to expire. All tax bills must be introduced in the House of Representatives, so if you are unhappy with the current state of taxes, you should start there.   Also for those wondering, Clinton's tax increases would have added about $140 billion per year in tax revenue.
    • Sooooo....we were at a breaking point before Obama care....anyone actually think their policy under Trumpcare is going to reduce costs with an increase in benefits.....over an extended period of time?
    • The Art of the Deal......
    • So in a nutshell, you wouldn't really recommend buying U.S. Treasury bonds for an investment.
    • I'm not sure on how much foam it took.  It has over 2" on the bottom.  What happens with the cold surface is you have to "flash" the surface with foam then go over it again, it uses more chemical to do the same job.  So the price to do a cold house is more.  The foam comes out hot & creates more heat during the chemical reaction.     The froth paks were more expensive than having it done in my case.
