I am seeing warning signs in the lawns around me after the Fiesta herbicide was used by pros. Can you order that online?

https://www.amazon.ca/-/fr/Fiesta-D%C3% ... uage=en_CA ?
Is it effective ?

I was told that the pros use herbicides that are not available to retail customers and you need a license to buy it

Hvac advice warning - inaccurate information on forum, vested interests in selling builder's equipment. Selling dealer-only brands without being authorized is a red flag. Report to CRA if offered no tax cash-deal. If it's 2 good to b tru, it is.

Using iron-based herbicides for alternative weed control:

"Introduction:

Products that contain FeHEDTA are selective herbicides for the control of broadleaf weeds, moss, algae, and some fungal diseases in turf and garden beds. Selective broadleaf control means it will kill weeds but does not harm the grass. They work quickly, delivering visible same-day results, even in cool weather. Since the active ingredient is made from iron, it has no unpleasant odor during or after application and people and pets can reenter the treated area once the spray is dry. The products can stain clothing or pets when wet.

Suitable for broadcast application or spot treatment, these products will help grass look its best, even in many pesticide-restricted areas such as lawns, parks, golf courses, cemeteries, sports fields, playgrounds, schools, and universities. Lawns and turf can be reseeded within one day of treatment and it is ideal for alternative lawn care programs or in­ areas­ that­ have­ enacted pesticide bans.

Mode of Action:

The iron is bound to a chelating agent that keeps it soluble and readily available for plant uptake. Broadleaf weeds absorb chelated iron easily and in larger quantities than grass which leads to cellular damage (cell necrosis) and ultimate plant death while the grass remains unharmed. Full coverage of the weed is important for the best results."

Sorry, I missed your link on mobile. Fiesta is iron based weedkiller, higher percent than what you buy in store (weed b-gone and others). Nothing against you buying this concentrate.

Yes, Weedman uses it. It's not as effective as 2,4,d but it does work. Nice thing is that it won't give your kids/pets hormonal problems or cancer.

You can also just buy weed b gon concentrate and mix that strong. Same stuff, just different concentration.

WBG Concentrate is 2% iron.
Fiesta is 4.43% iron.

So, can mix to whatever concentration you want with either product and WBG concentrate is way cheaper.

Neither work that well, but that is a different story.
