Uhhhh, no. This is the concentrated version.

Sure it is. But it’s still regular price for it. What are you trying to get at?

Clovers are beneficial for nitrification, they're not weeds.

I have this bottle, but I always mix too much and it kills the grass.

I don't have a measuring cup and I am not educated.

Can someone give me the 5 year olds elementary explanation how to use this product.

Sometimes I find myself trapped in elevators, so be really slow with your explanation.

The cap is a measuring cup. Look inside there are mL and oz lines there. Mix with water as per instructions on bottle under the peel back label. It’s a tiny amount to mix. Like 30 ml per 1 litre of water or something really low like that. You don’t want it to strong as it kills too quick before the root can absorb it all.

Just buy this and set it to setting 6.
Done and done.

Is this stuff safe around trees and tree roots?

I've got 2 cherry, 2 apple, and 2 pear trees. Tons of weeds around them. Don't really have a lawn in the front or back so that doesn't matter to me. I just don't want to harm the trees or end up with like tainted fruit or something.

100ml per 5L

Looks like ortho recommends based on coverage of area:

"Mix 6 mL per litre of water to treat 5 square metres (50 square feet). May also use with the Scotts Dial 'N Spray® Hose-End Sprayer."

PARIII usually says 100ml per 5L

The packets I bought off ebay ... White granular particles dissolved in water (I use a leftover empty spray bottle) ... Works great.

Always have the good "illegal but legal on golf course" stuff in case the damn weeds get out of control.

NOTE> Par3 has twice the concentration in the concentrate than Killex... I would however, do the recommended dosing before increasing it by any amount. After all, if you can kill what you need with a little bit, why waste a lot of it?
