Default Weed killer and wasp killer recommendations???

I have a 3 acre yard that's being over ran by weeds and clovers, need some recommendations that wont kill my grass, also does anybody have any recommendations on wasp killer that will keep them from coming back?

Broadleaf herbicide like 2-4-D will kill the weeds.

My wasp advice is to find a good therapist now! You need to get this done before it consumes you, it will become an obsession trust me, the constant search for a spray that won't let you down, the perfect night with just the right tempature and humidity for the wasp to be positioned right on the nest, and the quest for the ultimate nest hiding place. Get under control man!


.....where'd I put my therapist phone number???

Do you mix it with water or apply straight to weeds?

2-4d for the weeds, spray wasps with any wasp spray, once they're all dead spray the nests and any overhangs on your house with bifenthrin once a month. Been doing this for years with success

Bifenthrin is the stuff a older guy told me to try at the feed store, I just never could remember the name

What kind of grass do you have? Reason i ask is some engineered grass like st augustine is technically a weed so 24d will kill it. 3 acres would be a lot for st augustine, but just putting that out there

Hard to tell, maybe centipede grass? I'm surprised you have 3 acres of what looks like turf grass. 2 4 d wont kill it as long as you apply conservative and in moderate weather, it will yellow it if it's too hot, but should come back

2-4d at the max rate will not kill st. Augustine grass. At all. Nor centipede or zoysia or fescue or bermuda. It kills broadleaf weeds.

Here's my suggestion, you have a wide blade grass like st Augustine or centipede. Go to a local feed store and talk to them. With 3 acres of it you'll need more than is economically feasible from home depot, and 2 4 d in large quantities are restricted. But there's some stuff that's not restricted which the feed store will be able to recommend. Even though i have the license, i use something called remedy a lot which is not restricted, which is best for woody plants and weeds, but does kill a lot of weeds if applied at the right time. Anyway, a feed store i. Your area will liekly give you the best advice for what works, and even better than that would be a call to your county A&M extension office. Tons of spot on advice from them specific to your area.

Go get you a pallet of Scott’s Bonus S weed and feed and turn the sprinklers on. You’ll then need a 100 gallon gas tank to feed the lawn mower.

I'll just note I've never had those grasses to test, but speak based on word from my local extension office agent

Yes i use the Spectracide with Atrizine on my St. Augustine. Be sure to follow the directions on the bottle. It kills everything except the Horse Herb. That weed is horrible. I use 9% vinegar on that but it still gives me fits

We mix the 24D and Atrazine and broadcast spray it behind a 4 wheeler in a 14gal tank. Iím not sure of the exact ratio, but it works like an absolute charm! It knocks weeds and clovers to the dust in about 2 weeks and the good grass thrives!

This and I have had very good luck with the Fertiloam brand. I used it once last year and it worked all year. It kills a lot of "bad" grasses but not Bermuda grass.

You really need to calibrate your sprayer.

Hand spraying I'm putting out 109 gallons per acre, when I run my boomless sprayer I'm I'm calibrated at 10 gallons per acre. Huge difference.

Diesel. For the wasps, may work on the weeds too.

Yep. A strong mix of dawn, stirred not shaken in a cheap pump up sprayer. Shoots a long way on straight stream. Then there's just soapy water on your house, bushes or whatever instead of that nasty crud that's in wasp spray.
As also mentioned above. Spray with Demon from TSC. Good stuff on lotsa critters and cheap. Now go get 'um!

Chemical solution for wasps. Most of 'em never move. Except to fall to the ground.
