Hi-Yield 2, 4-D Selective Weed Killer
By Sara in Colorado Springs CO on July 18, 2011
The buyer of the gallon size should be aware that the percentage of 2, 4-D is much less than in the quart size.

Review by Sara may not be correct!
August 26, 2013
I read the review by Sara, who stated that the % of active ingredient was different in the quart and gallon sizes. I was curious, so I emailed Do My Own and asked them. According to Do My Own, there is NO difference in % active ingredient in the quart and gallon sizes.

Works without killing my grass
By Beth in Birmingham, AL on April 22, 2012
I ordered 2,4-D and had my order is like two days. However when I opened it, it was a bug control product. I called customer service and mailed me another gallon in the next two days. I received a return postage for the incorrect product - so just wanted to say the customer service was outstanding. The product works good, it doesn't harm the grass. I have applied twice to the area. The weather has been cooler than normal and I am wondering if it was warmer, if the results would have been faster.
Killing Lake Weed
By Ken in Eastover, SC on September 14, 2014
Most effective and least expensive method of killing millfoil and lilly pads that I have found. Earlier this year I bought a 50lb box of 2-4-D pellets from another merchant ($330) and used the entire box on one area. (It didn't do the job). THIS gallon of 2-4-D concentrate praised here did the work and I still have 2/3 gallon left. The product is good, the merchant DMOPC is great. Already purchased and received my subsequent order for Wasp killing spray.
By Cindy in New Berlin,Wisconsin on June 19, 2014
After years of trying to get rid of creeping charley from our 1/2 acre lawn my brother suggested your company's products. This product rocks and the weeds are gone from the areas we sprayed and we are very pleased with this product. I have recommended it to several people. Thank You
By Linda in Gig harbor, wa on June 19, 2014
We recently moved into a home we remodeled. The yard was neglected and overrun with weeds and overgrowth. We were able to get the yard in order - all except the horsetails!! After pulling and pulling and pulling again, nothing would touch these weeds - even Round Up. Then I found this product thru a web search. It works!!

Hi Yield 2 is very effective
By William in chesterfield, va on May 16, 2014
Hi Yield 2 is very effective against all the weeds here in our yard in Virginia. However, if you also have crabgrass, you can use Drive XLR8 to kill them. I ended up using 1 gallon per 1/3 acre based on dispensing from an Ortho dial sprayer…I needed 2 gallons to do 2/3 of my yard which is approximately 1 acre. That said, it works and will purchase more for next season

This product seems to get rid of most of the basic weed groups. There are a few weeds in my yard that require a specialized product. Nut grass, etc., but this product works well. Also, DoMyOwnPestControl has great prices and fantastic shipping. Will be purchasing from them again as needed.

QHow do I kill wild onions in my lawn?
I have a two acre lot in west Tennessee on what used to be agricultural land. I can't afford to seed or sod the whole thing. The front yard is not too bad because it has been hydroseeded with Bermuda. In the back, all we have done is mow. (Oddly, when you cut a pasture with a riding mower, it doesn't know it's not a pasture any more. . .ha ha!) We have onions out the ying yang! I've heard liming will help. That makes a little sense to me because I limed my front yard a few years ago, and the onions are almost non existent. I was looking at your Battleship III. Is this a good product to spray on my seeded/sodded areas as well as my non seeded areas?
ABattleship III is a good product, but since it is 2, 4-D free it is not labeled to treat wild onions. A product with 2, 4-D is usually suggested. We would recommend the Hi-Yield 2, 4-D Selective Weed Killer as your best option for treating wild onions.
April 7, 2011 Alexander asked:
QCan I put down my grass plugs after spraying with Hi-Yield 2, 4-D Selective Weed Killer?
I have dollar weeds that are hard to get rid of. I purchased the Hi-Yield 2, 4-D Selective Weed Killer on the advice of a gardener. I also need the mixture formula for a 2 gal pump up sprayer. I have a pint of Hi-Yield 2, 4-D Selective Weed Killer and my area is about 1,000 to 1,500 sq. ft.
AThe Hi-Yield 2, 4-D Selective Weed Killer product label says to use a 1/4 pint in at least 3 gallons of water to treat smaller areas like what you are describing. You should mow 1 to 2 days before application. You should not put down grass plugs for at least 3 weeks after using this product.

John from St. Augustine, Fl. asked:
QAmount of 2,4-D per gallon of water in hand sprayer?
AIt depends on how much you are trying to treat. One pint of 2,4 D will treat 1/4 acre of land and should be applied in at least 4 gallons of water over 1/4 acre. This works out to be about 3 ounces per 1000 square feet. It really doesn't matter how much water you use, but the 3 ounces has to be applied over the 1000 square feet.

QSpraying around fruit trees with exposed roots
I have a lot of growth around my fruit trees (apple, pear and peach} and most have exposed roots. I'm mostly wanting to kill the poison ivy as I can't use the weed trimmer on it without getting it on me. Would it harm the trees or the fruit?
A Hi-Yield 2, 4-D Selective Weed Killer is labeled to only kill broadleaf weeds and should not harm mature trees. Be sure none of the roots are cut before applying the product so the tree does not absord the weed killer. Another option would be to use the all natural Avenger Weed Killer Concentrate which is OMRI listed and approved for Organic Gardening and Organic Production by the USDA.

QUse of Hi-Yield 2,4-D
Desire: 1. To spray around shrubs. 2. Kill poison ivy n flower bed by painting leaf with brush. 3. To kill weeds under large trees.4. To kill wild grape vines. I've just heard of your product and I am excited to use it! I've adapted a cylindrical device at the end of my sprayers, to limit coverage of spray pattern n stop drift. Will spray penetrate the ground around shrubs and harm shrubs? How long does your weed killer last? Do you have a weed killer and pre-emergent combo spray? If not, do know of one? Thank you.
Hi-Yield 2, 4D Selective Weed Killer is labeled for use on lawns, around ponds, drainage ditchbanks, pastures and rangelands. It should not be used on shrubs. It should not penetrate the ground and kill the shrubs. It should last for the entire season but if not, another application can be made after 30 days. For a pre-emergence and post-emergent combination, we would recommend using Dimension 2EW. You will use .33 - .73 fl. oz. per 1,000 sq. ft. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

QHow can you call this "Hi-Yield" when the active ingredient (dimethylamine salt of 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid) is only 11.84%? Most competing products have a concentration of four times that! More like Low-Yield?
A We do not manufacture the product nor do we have any decision on the percentage of the active ingredient that is included in the product or the decision on selecting a name for the product.

Frank from Jacksonville, Fl. 32244 asked:
QWill Hi-Yield 2,4d kill crabgrass or nutsedge?
A Hi Yield 2, 4-D is not labeled to kill/control nutsedge or crabgrass as it is primarily used for more common broad leaf weed control. Due to nutsedge being a difficult weed to control, often you need a very specific product just for the nutsedge in the yard and will need to use something like Sedgehammer. If you have warm season grasses (with the exception of St Augustine grass) Dismiss South will control broadleaf weeds, crabgrass and nutsedge. If you would like to give us the type of lawn you have, how much area you are looking to treat, and if there are any other weeds you are looking to target in particular, we can try to find a product best suited to your specific needs.
