Expensive but Works!
By Roger on 09/01/2011
I use Fusilade II to kill the bermuda and crab grass growing in a large bed in which I'm trying to get Periwinkle (vinca minor) to take over as the predominant ground cover. I mixed the Fusilade with a spreader/sticker/penetrant called Cadence made by KALO, Inc. I oversprayed the Periwinkle and grass with the mix and (you have to be patient) after about 5 to 7 days the grass was dead and gone and the Periwinkle was untouched.

A great Herbicide for grasses
By Harold on 06/06/2011
After early research on Fusilade in the 80s with UCCE in CA for crop use, I (aswell as my friends) now find it useful in my flower garden for selective control of annoying annual and perennial grass in Seattle's wonderful gardening climate. But it doesn't control annual bluegrass or fescues. It has some odor so wear plastic gloves. It takes more than a week to get control, but rest after that week. Prompt shipping by this online company.

Fusilade II for Torpedo grass
By Russll on 07/13/2012
I recently received Fusilade and have tried it in spot areas to se if it effects the flowers planted in the same areas. So far it is working well. It was recommended by our County Extension Agent.

After first application mixed with Ester, the Bermuda has taken a hit. The second application a month later is coming up.

Zoysia application rate
By Bh on 10/15/2014
bought product to control weeds and misc grasses on a Zoysia lawn in W Central Florida. Applied at .5 oz per gallon. Probably applied too heavy? Both zoysia and weeds are still stunted and turning yellow after 3 weeks.....recovery of zoysia is TBD. It is not clear on the label what rate to apply on a zoysia lawn. Can anybody help with the application rate for a healthy zoysia lawn?
Fusilade II is not labeled for use on home lawns. In other zoysia turf areas, the product label states: "Over-spray Zoysia: Application should be made at a rate of 3-4 fl oz/A with Fusilade II Turf and Ornamental Herbicide, and a nonionic surfactant. Applications should be made in late spring (around June 1) and repeated about every 28-30 days. Latesummer application can be reduced to 2-3 fl oz/A as bermudagrass is preparing for dormancy. During hot summer weather the rates could be increased to 4-5 fl oz/A. Note: The 5 fl oz rate could cause temporary turf discoloration."

Nothing Else Gets Bermuda Grass
By Rhonda on 10/27/2012
The active ingredient in Fusilade is very effective against Bermuda Grass and moderately effective (but the best there is) agains Johnson Grass. Fusilade is cheaper than Roundup because even for Bermuda you use less to the gallon even with the cost of the surfectant added in. And it is grass-specific -- it won't kill your favorite rose if a drop drifts onto it, as Roundup will. But read the label -- some non-grass plants are a bit susceptible to it. This is the best deal on Fusilade I found and I like the new container. Even though I live in a big agricultural area, DoMyOwnPestControl's price was less than any I found here and much less than any other Web source. It arrived promptly and well packed, mostly in biodegradable shredded cardboard.

I mixed the Fusilade w/surfactant per the label instructions and applied it to my lawn 8 days ago with a garden sprayer. Already the Bermuda grass has yellowed and looks dead. I will reapply in 20 more days just to make sure and then reseed in 14 days. The fescue seems to have survived quite well.

Zenith Zoysia vs Bermuda
By Francisco on 07/13/2014
This is a must have herbicide if you are growing a zoysia lawn from seed (or you have a neighbor with bermuda). If you previously had a little bermuda grass, then you will have a ton before the seed can germinate. I combined it with Turflon Ester to reduce injury to my desired grass while killing the bermuda. I only use .1 oz/gallon (with .25 oz/gal Turflon) application so this should last me a while. Expect stunt growth on zoysia for about a couple weeks and multiple applications since bermuda never stops invading.

works on bermuda and crabgrass
By S. on 07/14/2014
This is my second bottle, I had real problem with bermuda taking over front yard. Used roundup and did it three different times 2 yrs. ago. Reseeded the area and last yr the bermuda was back. Saw this product and tried it last yr., it killed the bermuda roots and all hasn't came back in that area. Works on growing crabgrass too. "Two thumbs up"

Great Grass-Specific Herbicide
By Curt on 10/01/2012
Fusilade kills grass without harming broad-leafed plants. It is perfect for eliminating grass that has invaded flower beds. Crabgrass is especially vulnerable to Fusilade; so, you can mix a dilute batch to kill crabgrass and not harm a fescue lawn. You can get the same herbicide in Grass-B-Gone, pre-mixed in a spray bottle, but it is really expensive.

Did not work well at all!!!! Followed instructions, but SOOOOO MANY weeds did NOT die!!!! I will still need to hire somebody to hand pick all those weeds! Disappointing considering how expensive it is.

Great product Fantastic Price
By on 07/17/2013
Unfortunately, I have used this twice since I got it and it has poured rain afterwards for days, so though I can see some results, I think the rain certainly diluted it. Shame too because it is expensive. BUT, this was 30 dollars less than I am able to get it at my local store. My landscapers have used this for me before with good results, but this is something that needs to be applied about 10 days apart to get the best lasting results. I like that I can overspray in most of my plants with no harm to them. I am not over spraying on veggies or fruit trees as I'm not sure if it will affect them. If anybody knows, please post. I will use this site again. It was very easy, great price, great product and was shipped very quickly. I also told my landscapers about the site as it was an even better price than they could get here locally.

kills grass in shrubs
By Mike on 09/02/2014
If you are tired of pulling grassy weeds from your low growing shrubs, this product will do the trick. Not cheap, but saves a lot of hand weeding.

As advertised the product is killing burmuda grass in my rose beds. I have an old lawn and the grass in unwanted areas has always been a problem. The product was recommended by a friend and along with the spreader is working and cleaning out the burmuda grass.

Hard to find chemcials
By Steve on 02/23/2013
As usual, the service was smooth and fast and I was able to get some chemicals that aren't easy to find in my area. I have used Do My Own several times and never been disappointed.

Fusilade II Herbicide
By Gene on 07/09/2015
Received from DoMyOwnPestControl before expected date: rate the team a 5. Have applied one time and Bermuda dying, fescue surviving with some noticeable color loss. Happy at this point. Computing mixture instructions could be made much easier.

Used a 1% solution with the recommended non- ionic surfactant over the top of the winter creeper ground cover two weeks ago. It's been a slow death to the unwanted broadleaf weeds. The winter creeped tolerated the Fusilade without any discoloration. I will probably spray other areas with a 1.5% solution next application.

Fusilade in Floratam
By Mike on 03/28/2012
I applied Fusilade II to bermuda growing in my Floratam yars, using the recommended dosage (two teaspoons per gallon of water) sited by Steve from Cape Coral. It is not "mildly affecting" the Floratam, but killing a lot of it! Thanks for the crappy advice! It does appear to be knocking out the bermuda, but now I'll have to re-sod that part of the lawn that I treated. Fortunately, I didn't do the whole yard (about 12,000 sq ft). I sure as heck won't put an Turfon Ester on it!

Kills sand burs
By Jonathan on 10/19/2015
We bought this specifically to kill out sand burs and that's what it does. We're using it in combo with pre-emergents and glyphosate, hopefully we'll bring the situation under control next spring/
