One of the most difficult chores for landowners and homeowners is controlling unwanted weeds and brush. The constant mowing, trimming, pulling, and spraying of unwanted vegetation is an aggravating battle, especially during the summer months. The frustration only increases when nuisance plants grow back, or other weeds move in and take over. When nothing else will grow, one can confidently bet the weeds will.
Herbicides are usually the method of choice to provide effective weed control. However, herbicides are not a “silver bullet” and it is critical that they are used correctly for maximum effectiveness. To add fuel to the fire of frustration is when herbicides don’t seem to work or provide long lasting control. When using herbicides, you are not going to see pesky plants cry out and melt before your eyes as the wicked witch did in the Wizard of Oz. A little understanding of how herbicides work can go a long way towards getting the most bang for your buck.
