Weed Blitz Organic Herbicide
This effective, organically certified, knockdown pine oil weed control is non-selective and kills most weeds and their seeds by stripping their outer protective coating. Success will depend on the type of plant, size, season used and coverage. Soft, young, non-woody weeds will respond best. Spray directly onto foliage, completely covering the plant, during the early hours of a hot sunny day. Safe to use around pets and doesn't harm earthworms or soil microbes. Active ingredient: Pine oil 136g/L. Ready-To-Use 1L trigger bottle, for ease of quick application when weeds are small and young, and at their most vulnerable. No larger sizes are registered for sale. For larger areas you can empty multiple bottles into a pressure sprayer, no water needed. Material Safety Data Sheet

It works best on soft, non-woody plants - seedlings, grasses, herbaceous plants and seeds.
It is a non-systemic herbicide, so won't be as effective on woody plants or plants with runners, rhizomes (underground runners) or tap roots; as it does not penetrate woody stems or roots. So shrubs like lantana, gorse or bamboo, deep rooted plants like thistle, and runners like kikuyu, wandering jew, nutgrass or onion weed will not likely yield results.
Will drift from the spray harm other plants?
Drift may cause some burnt spots on leaves but as Weed Blitz is non-systemic, it won't spread to other parts of the plant. As Weed Blitz doesn't penetrate woody tissue, drift won't harm tree bark.
Does it work on other plant parts?
It can kill weed seeds on the soil surface.
How much do I use on each plant?
Direct and complete coverage of foliage is critical to success.
How quickly does Weed Blitz work?
On a warm, sunny day, effects can be seen in a few hours. A rain-free period of three hours following application is desired.
