what it take to work
By Dennis on April 11, 2012
The way this material is chemically structured requires a surfactant be used to be effective. Also it is not very active if the temp is below 70 . So as per the review that may have been the problem. As a rancher and citrus grower I have use 100's of gallons over the years and the only time it was not effective was in low temp or forgot to add a sticker spreader. Used correctly it is very effective. Read the label for resistant weeds. Malva or cheese weed when over the seedling stage is resistant. It is a contact only herbicide. That is to say if you spray half a leaf only half a leaf will die. It does not kill roots. Good top kill in 24 to 48 hrs. great for quick annuls top kill only. round up works slow cost more (about 4X) but kills roots.

Completely useless product
By John on March 19, 2012
This material did absolutely nothing in my application. I'm only giving it 1- star because this form won't let me make it NO STARS. I mixed it per the label directions for spot applications for use on common duckweed, and after no results tried doubling and tripling the mix with no positive results (I last tried a 10% mix). I used Diquat in its original form and mixture approx. 15 years ago, and apparently they just don't make it like they used to. Back then I would see nearly immediate results with application to common duckweed- I mean you could see the plants turning to white within minutes of application in bright sun. This current material is not nearly as solid in color prior to mixing as it used to be, so apparently it is literally diluted to the point that it is totally useless. This is a complete waste of money to buy it, and time to apply it. I have a little of it left and plan to just apply it completely undiluted just to see if it has any validity as a genuine product at all.

diaquat aquatic weed control
By Nick on June 20, 2012
I have owned 3 lakes for 24 years and the only product that controls and kills duck weed is your diaquat water weed herbicide. I mix it with copper sulfate and apply with a diaphram tank sprayer. Within hours the floating green mass turns brown. DEAD I purchase 2.5 -5 gallons a year from Do My Own Pest Control_com and the shipping is fast and free. Thanks for the clean lake.

Diquat Water Weed and Lanscape Herbicide
By Terry on August 13, 2012
We purchased a soon to be beautiful 11 acre home with two ponds and a stream. The property was heavily overgrown and the ponds were completely green. We have clear ponds, and have killed on the grass growing in the driveway. All we can say it this stuff is WONDERFUL and super easy to use.
By Dick on February 4, 2014
I bought this after trying another product from a landscape supply that only provided partial results. Diquat killed about 95% of the weeds in our yard. However, in fairness, I can't say for sure that I squirted every clump, so that would place the kill rate somewhere between 95 and 100%. How to improve? Well, maybe be a little more dummy-level specifics on the addition of "nonionic surfactants." I used TSP and that worked, but am uncertain if that was the best option.
By Frank on October 22, 2013
This is a great product to get rid of weeds that have already sprouted this herbicide kills with in 24 hours works great.
By Colleen on September 30, 2013
I use this product on the false loosestrife we have growing in the pond. Only a small amout mixed with water turns the leaves brown in one day. I love the built in measuring cup.

This is the best product we have used for weed control. Combined with Primatol, the results were the best we have ever seen. Thanks to DoMyOwnPestControl for the recommendation.
Diquat Water Weed and Landscape Herbicide
By Dennis on September 18, 2013
I was amazed how well this product worked on my milfoil problem. I called tech support and they were great. I couldn't believe that I could spray a diluted amount UNDER water and it would kill the weed. It did at a recommended rate of 6 oz. per gallon of water. I set the pump up hand sprayer at the stream setting and blasted the base of the weeds at a mixture of 8 oz. per gallon. In less than one week the weeds disintegrated. I expected to see a floating mess but I didn't. I ordered 2 quarts at $67 with no shipping charge! I highly recommend this great product and this company, Domyownpestcontrol.com
Diquat for our Pond
By Edgar on September 18, 2013
We recently drained our pond and when it refilled, we started having a large amount of weed growth. After having the growth tested, Diquat was recommended. After talking to your specialist, who was very knowledgeable and patient, we ordered a gallon and within a few days the pond began clearing. During shipping about 20% had leaked out. We notified your specialist again and we were refunded $22.00. We will be using this again, when the geese return next year. Thanks!
Diquat water weed herbicide
August 29, 2013
I applied the Diquat as directed with the additional additve to help the weed killer stick to the coontail for more effectiveness as directed. It did a great job on the 1st half of the lake and I'm doing the 2nd half this weekend. The coontail started turning brown on the top layer and is dieing even more as the herbicide works it's way down the weed. It could stand better directions as to how much water to add to Diquat for mixing instructions. Also, please wear a inexpensive rain suit for applcation as this product is very potent and if it gets on your skin and is not washed off quickly, it really burns or makes your skin break out with soars. But it is sure doing the trick on those weeds. I just hope that they do not come back next year.
Diquat Water Weed Herbicde
July 22, 2013
Great product. It works. I applied it directly to our pond and within 4-5 days the milfoil was gone. DoMyOwnPestControl was great. The representative helped me select the right product and instructed me on how the product should be applied. Free shipping is a real bonus. I have to order more herbicide and it is pricy, but it works very well. I recommend this product to anyone who has had milfoil take over their pond.
KILLED IT DEAD
July 15, 2013
BOUGHT THIS ON RECOMMENDATION FROM MY POND GUY (WHO WANTED TWICE AS MUCH!) FOR SAME PRODUCT. PRODUCT ARRIVED IN 2 DAYS. PRODUCT HAD SLIGHT DAMAGE DUE TO MISS HANDLING BY UPS. I MENTIONED IT TO DO MY OWN PEST CONTROL AND THE IMMEDIATELY REFUNDED A PARTIAL AMOUNT. AS FAR AS PRODUCT GOES ITS FANTASTIC. SPRAYED AS DESCRIBED AND SAID PLANTS WERE DEAD THE NEXT DAY. WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND PRODUCT AND COMPANY. VERY HAPPY WITH PRODUCT AND SERVICE..
Excellent With Long Lasting Control
June 11, 2013
Use Diquat with Rodeo for excellent results on aquatic and land. Lilly pads controlled for a year after initial few applications. Also good on ANY surface water weed. Great control of weeds, grass, vines, dollar weed, spurge, sucklings, just about every weed on land. Both Rodeo and Diquat are good by themselves but the combination gives you EXCELLENT CONTROL and QUICKER BURN DOWN in 48-72 hours. Use a good surfactant also.

March 23, 2013Richard from Middletown Springs Vt asked:
QWill Diquat kill horsetail growing in a pond?
A Diquat Water Weed and Landscape Herbicide will kill horsetail. Horsetail is very hard to control and it can be tough to properly penetrate through the plant. When using the Diquat you will need to mix it at the rate of 2-4oz per gallon of water and mix it with an 80% Non ionic surfactant. You will need 2 teaspoons of the surfactant per gallon of water. This combination should eliminate the horsetail from your pond.

April 16, 2013Mark from Downers Grove Il. asked:
QWhat would be the best product to control tall grass in a natural pond about 1/4 acre?
Part of the pond is fine with the grass but it's taken over the whole circumference and I'd like to control, reduce 1/2 of it, what would be the best product considering it being in water not to affect the aquatic and bird life?
ADiquat Water Weed and Landscape Herbicide would be a great choice for you. Diquat controls weeds by interfering with photosynthesis, which results in rapid visible effects in only a few days. Best of all it has a full aquatic label and is not harmful to aquatic animals.
April 6, 2013Brad from Florida asked:
QWhat is dilution rate of Diquat and how do I apply to duckweed in a pond?
AFor duckweed control, apply Diquat Water Weed and Landscape Herbicide at 1-2 gallons/A + 32 oz./A of surfactant in at least 100 gallons of water. Treatment of dense weed areas may result in oxygen loss from decomposition of dead weeds. This loss of oxygen may cause fish suffocation. Therefore, treat only 1/3 to ½ of the water body area at one time and wait 14
days between treatments.
