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.
