Copied from post # 30 "Serpentine"

I have never bought any "killus" product; I've had my 2 acre rural,waterfront property for over 30 years and have a lot of those so-called weeds- in fact, my lawn is covered in a bed of those horrible yellow ones called dandelions. I know I should be putting down poisonous chemicals so I too can have that beautiful lawn/property free of "pesty" weeds; after all, I need to show others how responsible I am to do my part and keep up with the Jones. Oh I know, the work required to manually remove those silly weeds is indescribable.
However, on a positive note, I am happy to report there are hundreds of bees enjoying my weeds and smiling up at me. I am proud to help out the bees, who had a rough spring as well. to eat and survive. Most of us realize that without bees there is no us! So for the millions who need weed free lawns and such, think about the chemical impact upon our life-supporting eco-system and the impact upon the food chain for all living organisms including us. Thanks for your time and consideration. Have a nice day!

I've been thinking of ordering from lawnproducts.ca and having it shipped here to Ontario. It's rather expensive ... $49.99 a bottle especially considering it's $15.99 in Alberta! Have you had any issues ordering from the States? Any specific place you usually order from?

Same formula as ParIII, just lower (half) the concentration.

get the Par 3 and split costs with friends...

Shipping costs will be about $20 minimum to ON. Add that to purchase price then it's about same price as 1L split with PAR but at half the concentration as @reyoasian mentioned.

It just means, you will use more killex vs par 3 if you have a weed invested lawn.

Please read application rates...

hm...just mix bleach, borax, salt, water and vinegar (>5%) if you want to "just" kill grass and will be cheaper than killex

This is selective...

i think they’re worried that it would kill grass if they sprayed it all over. but looks like it is selective?

Killex is selective.

Pro tip; put a tiny squirt of liquid dish soap when you mix it. Nobody will notice the smell and it adheres to the leaves you're trying to kill better.

Edit: credit to whoever gave me the tip here 5 years ago (can't remember who). Been doing it since and works wonders.

Killex uses 2,4-D and mecoprop as the active ingredients. When used as directed it is extremely effective on broadleaf weeds (including clover) and does not harm grass. However clover is not generally harmful to your lawn, and an over-abundance of clover indicates poor conditions for grass that should be corrected.

1L of concentrate is ample to handle a large lawn for many applications. Not that you should need many. A single application will wipe out an invasive weed and allow your grass to spring back as long as the lawn conditions are suitable for grass. If the weeds come back and choke out the grass within a year, there is something else wrong with your lawn conditions and you should fix that instead of applying a chemical band-aid.

2,4-D is banned (for private use only) in Ontario and Quebec because of a report a decade ago that it might cause cancer. However the study that was based on was found to be flawed, and subsequent studies did not confirm. But those provinces never retracted their ban. Why they though it was ok for golf courses and public parks, but not your home use, is a bit murky - perhaps they were concerned about safe handling of the concentrate. Like most chemicals, it is potentially toxic in high concentrations. You should use mask and gloves when handling the concentrate and when spraying. This Killex 1L concentrate is sold at CT and Home Depot in other provinces for about the same price. At HD in BC you have to get it from a locked cage, where the store staff must caution you about safe handling of chemicals.

It has a very strong and distinctive odor, and anyone downwind will smell it.
