[Canadian Tire] Scott’s Weed-B-Gon 1litre concentrate $29.93 YMMV

In-store Product discontinuation. This is the concentrated form that you can dilute to the strength you want. This 4.43% concentration product is rapidly disappearing. Scott’s is replacing it with a new branded Weed-B-Gon MAX with a drastically reduced concentration of only 2% chelated iron. Note I am not a fan of the pre-mix product which was only 0.25% chelated iron.

Note the better discontinued product varies in price at different CTC outlets so definitely YMMV.
Weed-B-Gone Concentrate $29.93.

Ugh, even at ~4% and diluted this stuff is expensive and ineffective. The 2% is going to be terrible. All the more reason to find a source of Killex or Par3.

This stuff is not effective. They have to sell it after the good broadleaf herbicides got outlawed for us peasants. Golf courses though, of course! Couldn't force the politicians to play golf with those god awful dandelions. Every farmer outside of town has an absolutely stunning lawn as well, since agriculture is still allowed to use it. I fully understand that it's required for no-till farming. Great, but why would you outlaw it for the tiny percentage of suburbanites when the vast, vast majority of usage is giant farm fields?

Boils my blood. Rant over.

Lawn Products or Amazon for Killex at inflated prices, but will ship anywhere in Canada. Usually eBay for Par3.

In some provinces, Canadian Tire or Home Depot will sell you Killex for 'poison ivy at the cottage', but you would have to buy in store and have a compliant staff member.

I tend to agree. But some blame also goes to idiots who don't use the product properly. It is dangerous at high concentrations.

Doesn't exist, just overseed like crazy. Been doing research on pre emergents and corn meal doesn't work, which is the only legally allowed product in Ontario

weed b gone is garbage! Don't waste your money and time on this water. KILLEX all the way, never had any weeds on the lawn after using Killex. I do 2 treatments, one in spring and one in fall for a weed free grass. Buy the container with the hose attachment so you can just attach it to your hose and spray the lawn. Only $16-18 at local Home Depot or CT (more expensive). There is a reason why Killex is locked up at the store and needs staff to open it and ask you questions. Usually it's a kid who doesn't care and I just buy a bunch at once. I will never waste money and time with anything other then Killex for weeds

or is there a different Killex product that's better?
Interesting. I thought Killex was banned years ago in Ontario. (Hence, all the dandelions growing every Springtime)
Unless this is a different chemical formulation from previous version when it was still allowed to be used.

Thank goodness that I haven't had much to fight with for the last few years.

However this year, I had some weeds in the front lawn and went with these "illegal" ones and it sure is great seeing brown spots now (gives me more work to do ... Hahaha) :

Only used it for the front lawn on the three sections that I don't take care of much. My main lawn at the front looks great!

This is why Killex has been outlawed in so many provinces.

So it seems like most would recommend killex? Is this equivalent to Spectracide. Had my lawn reseeded and aerated. Have ton of weeds. Will Killex work better then Spectracide? Don’t want to make a trip down south (when borders open) for Spectracide or something equivalent.

Shipping with Lawn products is expensive. Might buy if someone wants to split costs. Located in Milton.

If your lawn isn't too big, you'd be better off cost and environmental-wise using a handheld pump sprayer. Easily 2 bottles Vs 1 capful of this stuff for my lawn. Also, it is a good idea to add a surfactant into the mix so it sticks to the weed leaves. Otherwise, the droplets will just roll off.

I use some vinegar, water and dishsoap. Very lightly. Does the job.
