Ha. I was thinking the same thing before I clicked the thread. I’ve been paying the inflated Amazon prices for this stuff.
I'm stock piling a few 1L bottles for myself but message me if you'd like me to send you some bottles.

FYI - for those out west shipping it to someone in Ontario the last time I shipped a case (12 pack) of this for someone it was $45 via Canada Post with signature / insurance / confirmation.

If someone was to set up a group buy or something it might be worth the time to ship it out.

A little concentrate goes a long way. I dosed my lawn 2 years ago to kill an invasive weed, and it took about 1/4 of the bottle. The weed hasn't come back. The 1L bottle could be sitting on my shelf for a decade, slowly deteriorating.

I have this and the Scotts Dial n Spray (has specific setting for this weed killer).

What's the ideal process?
- Should I mow the lawn prior to using, or leave everything tall (weeds, grass)
- Should I do this when it's forecasted to be sunny for a few days?
- Should I water the lawn after usage?
- Should I use it "quickly" over the lawn or slowly? (I know spot treatment is better but I have a LOT)
- How soon should I see results?

Don't mow at least 2 days before and after application
Don't apply when rain is in forecast (at least 1-2 days without rain)
Don't water, let it absorb and dry out.
Apply so that weeds/grass are wet
Use protective clothing (boots, pants, long-sleeve shirt, mask)
Don't apply if it's too windy.

There are basically two types of weeds = tall ones and ones that hug the ground. If you mow before the application, you will get the ones that hug the ground but you may miss the tall ones. If you don't mow, you will hit the tall ones but not necessarily the ones that hug the ground. I suggest that don't mow for several days (if not weeks) before the application so that the weeds grow in and become an easy target to spot and spray using spot treatments (ie don't spray the whole lawn... only spots with weeds you can see). Wait a week and you'll see the weeds start to die off. Wait another week and then mow close to the ground. Then spray again for those ground huggers using spot treatments.

You don't need to wait for a few sunny days. These herbicides are waterproof in a few hours. Check the instructions and then double the time before the safe.

Don't water the lawn after the application. The stuff works by being absorbed into the leaves so if you water just after the application, you are basically washing it off.

If you do the spot treatment - mow - spot treatment method, quickly over those locations with weeds is enough. You don't and shouldn't soak the lawn with this stuff - there is NO NEED to do so and is a waste of product. All you need to do is to have the herbicide wet the leaves of the weed and it will do the rest. Getting herbicide down to the roots does NOTHING but waste it.

Many weeds will react to the Killex within a few days. Some may take upwards of a week or two.

Use a surfactant which will go a long way in helping it stick to the weed's leaves.

Yeah....I don't use it on the lawn. I use it to kill the weeds that grow between the interlocking driveway stones.
Interesting, I will try that. Didn't know it worked that good.
