Is this a best time or in late Spring to apply weed killer?


Weed killers are supposed to be applied when the weeds are actively growing, like in the spring / early summer.

Dare I say it again - spread fall fertiliser on your lawn and make sure it is cut short before the snow comes thus making it easier for the lawn to bounce back in the spring.

Thanks for the advice guys! Looks like I wasted $40 on putting Nematoads down a couple of weeks ago. This was under the guidance of the lawn "Expert" at Sheridan nurseries. At worst, it does nothing. Now I know I can order the good stuff online and have it delivered for next spring. So all good!

So... getting ready for the 2018 lawn season.. Trying to get my hands on some Scotts Grubex and have it shipped to Canada. Amazon is a pain as the sellers don't appear to ship here. Do any of you guys have a reliable source or am I gonna have to tough it and go for a field trip to Buffalo?

Wal-Mart in Niagara Falls USA is my go-to for all my illegal lawn care needs. Plus they sell everything else a social deviant could want, like booze and Doritos.

Do you just do day trips or stay overnight? If its just a day trip, do you have any issues bringing your stuff over? I ask because I was unable to get the weed and feed I like delivered..

Did it once, got it along with some beer and some things I was picking up at a delivery site.

Just declare everything and you’ll be fine. The grub killer isn’t illegal to possess, just use for residential purposes. I suspect this is due to lobbying by “big lawn care.”

I use the in-laws as mules now, but I’m pretty sure they’d have no problems importing kilos of cocaine; they’ve got that ‘border savvy’ if you know what I mean.

So... getting ready for the 2018 summer BBQ season.. Trying to get my hands on a few kilos of cocaine and have it shipped to Canada. Colombian Cartel is a pain as the sellers don't appear to ship here. Do any of you guys have a reliable source or am I gonna have to tough it and go for a field trip to the Amazonian Rainforest?

Will be bringing back 100+ bottles of Spectracide with 2-4-d, selective lawn weed killer and about 50 or so spray hose applicators of weed and feed with 2-4-d. This is the US stuff. $35.00 per bottle. 100% no dandelions or other weeds. Will be arriving early April.
