Review RateIt does not work even it on young weeds
Does not work to kill weeds even after 3 applications. I followed the directions correctly. I sprayed on young weeds thoroughly, a total of three times and some little brown spots appeared on a segment of the the blades of grass sporadically but nothing more. Do not waste your money on this product. Very disappointed.Response From Terro®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

All About Weeds
Unwanted weeds can cause harm in your garden if left unattended. They can crowd out the flowers and vegetable plants you have worked hard to cultivate.
Weeds can also cause damage to sidewalks and cause cracks in driveways and other outdoor surfaces; and let’s not forget how weeds can take over a backyard.
Weeds are typically just plants that are growing in the wrong place. Most weeds are just the natural flowers and plants that grow in your area and some may have been introduced in the past for medicinal, culinary or decorative purposes. So if you are wondering how to classify weeds, basically, if you didn’t plant it, and you don’t want it in your lawn or garden, it’s a weed.
Unwanted weeds can cause allergic reactions for some people; some of them have jagged leaves and many of them are unruly and well, they grow like weeds, taking over your garden and crowding out the plants you have spent time, energy and money on cultivating.
