CELSIUS WG Herbicide is a postemergent foliar-applied herbicide containing three active ingredients that provide a broad spectrum of weed control. This product is intended for use on residential lawns, commercial lawns, golf courses, sports fields, parks, campsites, recreational areas, residential lawns, roadsides, school grounds, cemeteries, sod farms to control annual and perennial broadleaf weeds and grasses in warm-season turf types listed on this label.
Weed growth ceases within hours after application. Symptoms progress from yellowing to necrosis resulting in plant death within 1-4 weeks after application. The speed of symptom development varies with temperature and will be faster at warmer temperatures. For best results to control mature weeds, apply when the daily average temperature is above 60° F. Make applications to actively growing weeds. Weed control may be reduced if application is made in the presence of heavy dew, fog, and mist/rain or when weeds are under stress due to drought.

worth the price
By Rpc in
Was hesitant to buy given the price but the Floratam lawn was being overrun with weeds, dollar weed in particular. The product has worked well - kills the weeds without harming the lawn. Only a small amount of the product is needed to create a gallon of spray so the cost will be amortized.

Turf damage warning - Bayer has issued product update
By Scott in West Palm Beach, FL on 06/20/2012
Following the label directions for spot treatment caused moderate and even some small spots of severe damage with clumps of grass (St. Augustine) falling out at the crown. In the update Bayer now recommends against surfactant for spot treatment. Basically, spot treating is not worth the risk due to damage from higher application rates as you focus the spray. The good news is my grass seems to be slowly recovering and the dollarweed and beggarweed were killed within days. The label lists kyllinga but it is still alive where the grass has died back. One weed which Manor/blade kills but this does not is Asiatic Dayflower. I have had some luck getting this to knock back blanket crabgrass but it grows back.

Celsius WG Herbicide works great
By Pete in Atlantic Beach, Florida on 10/11/2012
It seems like this has worked really well on my lawn trying to get rid of Dollarweed. I've tried Atrazine and Image in the past with minamal results. It did not hurt my Saint Augustine grass at all. I would definitely recommend this product. The only thing I would say is that a 10oz bottle is probably a 10 year supply. So I sprayed my neighbors yard and my mother-in laws yard as well.

Creeping beggarweed in St. Augustine at bay house in Texas.
By Betty in Houston, Texas on 06/27/2012
Creeping beggarweed was taking over my St. Augustine grass at my bay house in Rockport, Tx. Other herbicides I tried did not even phase this weed. I followed the mixing instructions in 1 gal. sprayer with the sufficant added. I used about 6 gallons initially on June 15th and within 5 days the beggarweed was dead or dying. I mixed another gallon this week and spot sprayed the weed where I missed the first time. Thank goodness Celsius kills this obnoxious interloper. Of course, I would like it even more if it was less expensive but under the circumstances I was thrilled to find something so effective on this pest.

Celsius WG Herbicide
By Christina in Cocoa, FL on 12/03/2014
We live on the eastcoast of central Florida on a sandy ridge. I applied this herbicide around 11/1 while the daytime temps. were around 80-85d F. I did a spot application in the late evening (large areas but not the entire lawn). I just surveyed the lawn and notice about an 70% reduction in the weeds I sprayed. Some weeds completely shriveled up and died, leaving bare spots. I still see some stubborn yellow dollar weed hanging in there, but most of them are gone too. Some crabgrasses didn't budge. None of my lawn got damaged, even the areas that got a double spray (I ran out of daylight and mixture one day and started again two evenings later and overlapped some areas). I am satisfied with this product and will continue using it. The granules dissolve easily and I didn't have any trouble with clogging etc. I did use a non-ionic surfactant.

Seems to be working on St. Augustine lawn
By Robert in Houma LA on 10/14/2014

We use a lot of Celius
By Matt in Jacksonville, FL on 08/27/2014
I use this product professionally with my lawn service company. It is great because it will kill just about every broadleaf weed when applied with a MES100 properly. I've only had trouble with chamber bitter, everything else is gone without harming St. Augustine.

Works well on Centipede
By Neal in Patterson, GA on 08/18/2014
I applied this at the highest rate in the July heat of south Ga. My centipede was well watered and growin and did not show any stress from the application. I have Chamber Bitterweed, Doveweed, and Florida Betony, Bahia, and other unidentified weeds. The Bitterweed show the effects within a couple of days as did the Betony. The Doveweed and Bahia took a couple of weeks. I highly recommend this product bc of it's ability to use it in the heat on the sensitive warm season grasses.

Celsius is HOT!
By Barbara in Upstate SC on 07/24/2014
This is the best thing I have found for control of crabgrass in Bermuda and Zoysia! Works best in combo with granular slow release (something containing Dimension). Now, if only it kills poison ivy living in Juniper...

celsius herbicide review
By Jesse in Troy, Alabama on 07/11/2014
The Celsius herbicide works well, however it kills some of the grasses it is labeled for use with.. I recently used it on an a mixed yard of Bermuda, St Augustine, and centipede. Lost some of all three of the grasses that I was trying to remove the other grasses from.

One of the best herbicides for St Augustine grass
By Somebody in Florida on 07/07/2014
Kills almost every kind of weed in my St Augustine grass and I can apply it when the temperature is hot. The 10 ounce bottle should last for years.

Anxious to try on Buttonweed
By in Prairieville,La on 08/26/2013
Just ordered some and a scale to measure grams and oz. so we can apply properly. All feedback is great online and this 28 yr. battle may be somewhat over. Buyers please note Update from Bayer on ionic surfactant in spot treatments. This is encouraging news for us lawn freaks. I gave it 5 stars out of pure optimism. Fingers crossed.

QHow many applications (gallons) does a bottle of Celsius make?
How many applications (gallons) can you get from a single bottle of Celsius?
AAs with most herbicides the exact volume of water is not very important, you just need to be sure you are getting the correct amount of product on a specific area. Celsius may be applied at three different rates depending on the weeds to be controlled. For the appropriate rate and species consult USE RATES FOR WEED CONTROL section on the Celsius product label. For spot applications, add the specified product rate of 0.057-0.113 oz (1.6-3.2g) to enough water to create approximately 1 gallon spray solution. One gallon of spray solution will treat up to 1,000 sq ft. For maximum weed control with broadcast applications, add non-ionic surfactant.

QYou indicate not to spray Celsius above 85 degrees.
Can Celsius be sprayed at 85 degrees even the temperature is rising and will be above that in an hour or two? In other words can I spray in the morning when it is 75 degrees and an hour later the temperature is over 85 degrees?
AAs long as the temperature during the application of the Celsius is not 85 degrees or above, then it does not matter what temperature it reaches mid day. The best time to apply herbicides is either early morning when dew is still fresh on the ground or late afternoon when the lawn and weeds are under less stress from the environment. The less stress the weeds are under the better they will absorb the product being used.

QIs there an herbicide that kills Virginia Button Weed and does not harm St. Augustine grass?
ACelsius Herbicide is the most recommended product to treat Virginia Buttonweed in St Augustine grasses. Virginia buttonweed is notoriously hard to control and may require a second application after 2-4 weeks.
05/24/2012 Seth from Orlando,fl
QWhat is the shelf life of Celsius WG? How long is the shelf life in a typical hot garage?
Calculating the labeled max/yr and my lot size, I figure one bottle would be 4+ years worth.
ACelsius should not be stored in a hot garage. Storing chemicals in hot temperatures will degrade the active ingredient and greatly reduce the efficacy of the product. When stored properly, out of extreme temperatures and out of direct sunlight, you can expect Celsius to last for about 3 years from the date of purchase.
05/24/2012 C from West Palm Beach, Fl
QCan Celsius WG Herbicide be used in temps of 85 or over?
I live is south florida and during the rainy season, weeds propogate. Most herbicides indicate they should not be used in temps over 85.
ACelsius, like most herbicides should not be used in temperatures 85F degrees and over.

QWill Celsius WG Herbicide kill Chamberbitter?
A Celsiu†WG Herbicide†is labeled to treat for Chamberbitter. However, we no longer carry Celsius and would recommend in its place Hi Yield Atrazine†for ChamberBitter. Be sure to follow the product label to make sure your turf grass is tolerant of this product.

QCan the area sprayed with Celsius WG be grazed by livestock?
ACelsius WG Herbicide is not labeled to be applied where animals will graze. Please contact your local cooperative extension office for more information on what would be a safe choice that will fit your needs.
QCan Celsius WG Herbicide control poa annua or wild violet? How long do you have to wait until reseeding after application?
ACelsius WG Herbicide is not labeled for eradication of Poa Annua but is labeled for wild pansy field violet. Please provide additional information on the type of turfgrass that you do not wish to harm and we will gladly help you select a product that will treat the broadleaf and grassy weeds that you would like to eliminate.

QI mowed and used Celsius WG to kills weeds; how long do I need to wait to lay down seed?
The yard has grass and is being over run with weeds. I'm Just trying to get a better looking yard for the kids to play in.
A The seeding interval will vary depening on what type of turf you have. You should review the product label for specific directions for your turf. For example: "Seeded Bermudagrass: This product may be applied to Bermudagrass up to 90 days prior to seeding without a significant reduction in Bermudagrass stand." "Seeded Zoysiagrass: This product may be applied to zoysiagrass up to 90 days prior to seeding without a significant reduction in zoysiagrass stand."

QWhy is celsius no longer available?
Celsius was a great product, why doesnt DMOPC carry it any longer?
AWe agree, Celsius is a fantastic product and it is unfortunate we no longer have it as part of our inventory. However due to a contract we have with the manufacturer there were recently some turf products we carried that are no longer a part of our contract and we cannot get. We apologize for the inconvenience and you should be able to find the product on other sites similar to ours online.

QHow long do I have to wait to fertilize after using Celsius? How often should we spray Celsius?
APer the Celsius WG Herbicide product label, you can actually add a fertilizer to the finished solution for application. For certain weeds, a second application made 2-4 weeks after the initial application may be needed for complete weed control. Total amount of product applied in a calendar year (365 days) must not exceed 7.4 oz (210 g) of product per acre.
03/23/2015 Heather from North Texas
QWill Celsius WG Herbicide kill Goose Grass?
A Celsius WG Herbicide is not labeled for goosegrass. Southern Ag Vantage Grass killer is a great product to eradicate goos grass. Please refer to the product label to make sure the type of turf you are applying to is tolerant to this product.
02/10/2015 Dennis from Fais Oaks Ranch, Texas
QI am in central texas, will Celsius WG harm blue bonnet plants?
ABlue Bonnet plants are not on the Celsius WG Herbicide product label as safe to be sprayed over or tolerant to the product so we would not advise using it in those areas. If you are looking for a weed or grass control product in blue bonnets you are welcome to tell us what you want to eliminate and we will see if we have a product better suited to your needs.

QCelsius WG Herbicide product life
I bought this and the product was manufactured two years prior (according to the label on the container). I appears to lose effectiveness rather quickly, wherein I have to now double the dose to get some response. The weeds are in a new area, so it is not likely there is weed resistance to Celsius occurring. Can you provide guidance as to the increased rate of application with product age?
AWhen stored properly, out of extreme temperatures and out of direct sunlight, you can expect Celsius to last for about 3 years from the date of purchase. We no longer sell this product so any additional questions, we would recommend contacting the manufacturer, Bayer.

QBayer's Celsius Has Little Effect oN Crabgrass
I have tried Bayer's product Celsius (WHICH YOU SELL) in my South Florida st aug lawn on post emergent crabgrass. It is my belief (and many others) that this product is falsely advertised. The only product that truly kills crabgrass is Asolux
ACesius is only labeled to control Large Crabgrass and there are other varieties such as hairy and smooth that are not on the label as listed weeds it will control. That could be why some are not having the success they would when using for the specific type of crabgrass they have. Unfortunately, we are unaware of a selective post-emergent herbicide to control crabgrass in a St Augustine lawn. St. Augustine is a very fragile grass, and so most selective products that are labeled to remove crabgrass and not harm your grass. It is recommended to kill the crabgrass with a round up type product, like GlyPhoSel Pro, which will also kill just the St. Augustine around the crabgrass that it is sprayed on, and then a couple weeks later re-seed those areas with new St. Augustine.
For long term control though, you should apply a pre-emergent in the late fall and early spring which will prevent new crabgrass from coming up next year. If you apply pre-emergent every year, you should not have issues with crabgrass long term. Dimension 2EW is one of our most popular pre-emergents for crabgrass.
