CAN I USE THE VINEGAR I HAVE IN MY CUPBOARD AT HOME TO MAKE MY OWN NATURAL HERBICIDE?

Yes you can however the solution you make up will be weak compared to our WeedX herbicide as the everyday vinegar has a low acetic acid level and the vinegar we use has a much higher acetic rate making it a stronger and faster and longer lasting weed controller.

WHY DON’T GOULTER’S USE SALT IN THEIR WEEDX FORMULA?

Because salt can harm our soil when used in excess which in turn can kill off plants and thus cause soil erosion – click on this link for more information.

IS IT SAFE TO USE WEEDX AROUND OUR FOOD CROPS, HUMANS AND ANIMALS?

Yes, it is non-toxic to human and animals. When preparing your vegetable garden you can spray off the weeds/grass then give it 24hrs to biodegrade and you are ready to plant in that soil

DOES WEEDX KILL MOSS?

Yes, it does a GREAT job on moss even when sprayed in the shade.

WHAT IS WEEDX BEST SUITED TO?

  • Small general weeds, excellent on broad leaf eg: dandelion and plantain
  • Mosses, lichens, liverwort, fungus
  • Garden edges, borders
  • Great on drive ways, paved areas
  • Public sensitive areas such as parks, playgrounds and street sides.
  • Families with children and pets
  • Lifestyle blocks – in the concentrated form it works well on small gorse and broom.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF WEEDX?

It is NON-TOXIC and fast acting, fully biodegradable in soil, water and the atmosphere.

It is totally natural and will not harm the soil life. It is safe to use around your vegetable garden, children and pets.

WeedX is fast acting so you see the results within the hour (providing it is a warm sunny day)

WHAT IS THE SHELF LIFE?

WeedX has an unlimited shelf life.

WHEN SPRAYING WHAT DO I NEED TO BE AWARE OF?

Be careful to spray on windless days as WeedX is non-selective and will kill off other plants nearby if drift spray reaches them.

WHAT DOES NON-SYSTEMIC MEAN?

This refers to a herbicide that does not kill the root of a plant off when sprayed. The plant will be knocked down and die back but eventually grow again. This can be said about most plants as gorse does re-shoot again even when sprayed using a toxic product.

WHAT DOES SYSTEMIC MEAN?

In the case of WeedX, small weeds which have a low root energy will die straight away. The bigger the weed of course the stronger the root system hence spraying the weeds when they are smaller.

DOES WEEDX WORK DURING THE WINTER MONTHS?

Yes, however in the case of small gorse it is best to spray from October-April as the plant is too hard during the winter months.

CAN I USE REGULAR VINEGAR TO CONTROL THE WEEDS IN MY GARDEN?

Yes, absolutely normal kitchen vinegars can be used however the strength of a normal vinegar to knock down weeds is not nearly the same as WeedX because our formula has been made with a much higher acetic acid level than a normal vinegar and it is this factor which makes it a great weed controller.

DO YOU HAVE AN MSDS?

Many farmers are asking us for a Material Safety Data Sheet to see if we have the approval to use it. It is certified by the EPA.

DOES WEEDX HAVE ANY LINGERING SMELL?

In the summer time there will be a bit of a vinegary smell for a short time but because vinegar is so volatile, the smell will dissipate into the atmosphere quickly. In the winter time the Vinegar smell may linger for a couple of days as the air is cooler and the smell will sit around for longer particularly if it is in an enclosed area.
