Want to Kill Clover in Vinca Beds

Clover is everywhere in my beds containing Vinca and some annual flowers. Is it safe to use Weed-B-Gon at the recommended strength to kill the clover but not the Vinca?

I have used this in my gardens with a garden sprayer. You can use it with the sprayer just hold the sprayer close to the ground and spray lightly so it doesn't get in contact with your flowers. Also, make sure it's about 12 inches or so away holding the sprayer against the ground. Another item I use a lot is Preen. It could be a lot of work at first depending on how much weeds you have but if you pull and scrape up the clovers put a good amount down it should keep the weeds at bay. Try to use only preen as I have tried other products and they haven't worked. Something to keep in mind in the spring when you are adding new soil and getting your flower gardens together and before adding mulch mix a lot of preen into the soil before laying that new soil down. I know it can be a little costly but trust me it works and will save you from a lot of back wrenching work of weed pulling. Try not to use other products like Preen as I have found out for myself they don't work. I have found this will last pretty much the whole planting season. You can sprinkle more during the summer on top of the mulch if you do see some weeds breaking ground just be sure to pull those weeds because preen will not kill anything that has already popped up. I hope I have answered your question and good luck with the clover.

How do I get rid of bedbugs naturally??how do I keep them out of my stuffed furniture without having to get rid of it?????


Three things will kill them naturally, heat (above 120 degree F), food grade diatomacious earth and permethrin spray.

Heat that high is hard to do alone, but you can contract (and I recommend you do based on your severity) a company to seal your outside doors and windows, and pump heat into your home for a few hours. This will kill all bedbugs(bb) in all stages of their life cycle. It takes a few hours at this heat to do so.

Diatomaceous earth is a powder that acts like concertina wire to pretty much all bugs. So the bugs have to physically come in contact with it. It is safe for mammals; you and your pet can eat the food grade level. You should dust the areas where there is the most bugs. I would dust around and in the beds, furniture and wherever else you suspect bugs. This will only kill the bugs that are moving. Eggs are safe. Plus, you cannot get the dust everywhere where the bugs can hide.

Permethrin is an oil extract from flowers. It is good against most arthopods and safe for mammals. The oil is diluted with water (I use hot or warm water) and applied by spraying. Depending on your spray applicator, you can spray into many places; however, it is only good for a about 24hrs. Direct contact is a must. It will kill bugs in all stages of life, but again, it must come in direct contact with them.

So to summarize, diatomaceous earth (DE) in conjuction with permethrin can wipe out a small, isolated infestation. If the bugs have moved to multiple places, heat is the best option as a whole-house solution as DE and Permethrin will not get into all the nooks and crannies like inside the walls and electrical outlets. These bugs can and do hide anywhere!

Are there different types of toddler beds or a standard type in different styles?


There are quite a few varying types of toddler beds in the market. The first kind I will mention is a convertible crib. The great thing about a convertible crib is that it will last much longer. Some parents also find that a convertible crib eases the transition phase. Next there is the "captain bed" also known as a storage bed. This bed has built-in compartments everywhere - under the bed frame, in the footboards, even in the headboards. There are other types of toddler beds such as loft toddler beds, futon toddler beds, and platform toddler beds; however I think they are less popular and ultimately less safe for your toddler.

How long should I wait to determine if my application of Weed B Gone is 'working'?


Weeds treated with Ortho Weed-B-Gon Chickweed, Clover & Oxalis Killer Concentrate will show visible signs that the product is working within 1 to 2 weeks. A repeat application may be necessary in 2 to 3 weeks for hard-to-control weeds. Initial signs that the product is working are wilting and yellowing of tender new growth. Necrosis (tissue death) then spreads to the rest of the plant. The weeds wither, turn brown and die.
Sometimes it appears that weeds are still growing and going to seed even after they have been treated with Weed-B-Gon Chickweed, Clover & Oxalis Killer Concentrate. These seeds will be sterile because the chemical will have reached them within 1-2 days of treatment. If you have any further questions please feel free to contact Ortho @ 1-800-225-2883

Sprayed yard two weeks ago and appears chickweed is spreading. No sign that the Ortho Weed b Gon for chickweed is working . The chickweed is actually blooming with tiny white flowers. I live in VA.


I am sorry that the Ortho Weed-B-Gon Chickweed, Clover & Oxalis Killer did not control the common chickweed as expected.

The active ingredient in Ortho Chickweed Clover and Oxalis Killer is Triclopyr, Triclopyr is very efficient at killing tough to control weeds, but it does take a lot longer for it to show results that it is working.

Weeds treated with Ortho Weed-B-Gon Chickweed, Clover & Oxalis Killer will show visible signs that the product is working under optimal conditions ( usually 65-85 degrees F) within 1 to 2 weeks. A repeat application may be necessary in 2 to 3 weeks for hard-to-control weeds. Initial signs that the product is working are wilting and yellowing of tender new growth. Necrosis (tissue death) then spreads to the rest of the plant. The weeds wither, turn brown and die.Sometimes it appears that weeds are still growing and going to seed even after they have been treated with Weed-B-Gon Chickweed, Clover & Oxalis Killer. These seeds will be sterile because the active ingredient will have reached them within 1-2 days of treatment.

If you give it another week and still see no yellowing, twisting or curling, you may want to reapply. If that still doesnt work, or you have any further questions give us a call at 1-800-225-2883 to see what else we can do.

At what outside temperature can I begin spraying for weeds.


Yes it will. I usually spray right after the grass starts growing in the spring. If you want to save some money look at the labels on all the weed and grass killers and find the one with the highest percentage of GLYPHOSATE for the price . Concentrated is always cheaper than premixed and the roundup brand name will always be the most expensive. It's all the same stuff no need to buy the brand name.
