Enforcer® Weed Shot Kills Weeds, Not Lawns

ATLANTA – Zep introduces Enforcer® Weed Shot, a concentrated herbicide that kills tough weeds down to the roots, without harming lawns. It is ideal for use as a broadcast treatment or spot treatment on ornamental lawns and turf grasses. It can also be used to control brush and vines along roads.

“Weed Shot is a selective herbicide,” says Nishad Chikhliker, Senior Product Marketing Manager, Zep North American Sales & Service. “That means it can be used to target and eliminate certain vegetation – specifically weeds -- while keeping other plants and grasses safe.”

Chikhliker explains that the active ingredients in Weed Shot mimic the weeds’ growth hormones, causing deformed growth in the weeds’ vascular systems. This causes the leaves to shrivel up and die. Because grasses typically contain different growth hormones, these active ingredients don’t affect them.

Weed Shot uses 2, 4-D, dimethylamine salt to kill broadleaf weeds including dandelion, violet, morning glory, thistle, goldenrod, ragweed, spurge, plaintain, chickweed and clover. It begins to work overnight, for fast-acting results.

The product – available in 1-gallon bottles, 5-gallon pails, and 55-gallon drums – is concentrated, providing a better value than ready-to-use products. For most applications, 950 square feet of lawn can be treated with 5-6 ounces of product, diluted into 5 gallons of water.
