Does the job!
By Bob in Southern New Jersey on 04/16/2013
I put this down three times a year using a 50 Gal tank sprayer (mixed at a rate of 1/2 gal. Surge to 49 gals. of water) over three and a half acres. It yellows all the weeds in about two days after the first rain and completely kills them in about 1-2 weeks. I have tried several other products, but the best results have come from Surge.

I applied Surge to the Henbit, dandelions, et al and waited. It does take a few weeks but the weeds stunted, turned yellow, and withered. It is not like Roundup where the plants shrivel within 24 hours. This takes a week or more - but it is effective.
By Fred in Richmond, VA on 09/05/2015
With a 2-3 day knock down it is a very good product... Doesn't harm turf grass but use as directed... 1 gallon concentrate goes a long way for spot treatment...

QWhat is the best herbicide for crabgrass?
I had my yard planted about 2 months ago here in Minneapolis and I have a terrible crabgrass problem. I just ordered Surge, but am being told by someone that it won't work on the crabgrass. Thank you
APer the product label for Surge it is not labeled to control crabgrass. Our most popular crabgrass product is Drive XLR8. Drive XLR8 Herbicide is the latest technology in providing unsurpassed post-emergent crabgrass control. Drive XLR8 is a post emergent selective herbicide that is labeled for crabgrass as well many other troublesome weeds. Not for use on St Augustine grass. Please refer to the product label to ensure your grass type is tolerant to the Drive

QWhat is the shelf life of Surge Broadleaf Herbicide?
AMost manufacturers give a shelf life of at least 5 years, but products can last longer if you keep the lid on, keep the product out of direct sunlight, and shake up the container every few months to prevent the active ingredient from settling to the bottom and getting clumpy and dried out.

QHow do I make an application with Surge Broadleaf Herbicide for Turf with an Ortho Dial-N-Spray?
Is there any way to use the Ortho Dial N Spray end of hose sprayer with this product? It has measurements of tsp per gallon all the way up to oz per gallon, what would I set it to and how much would I fill up for a 4,000 sqft yard and what would I set the dial to? I ask because I've tried using a hand pump sprayer and it's a very tedious operation!!! Thanks Haris
A The rate for†Surge Broadleaf Herbicide for Turf†is going to vary depending on the type of grass that you are applying the product to as directed on the product label. For example, for applying to warm season grass you would use 1.1 to 1.2 fl oz per 1000 sq ft and apply that in 0.23 to 5 gallons per 1000 sq ft when broadcasting or spot treating.†That is the†application rate that is recommended, regardless if you are using a pump sprayer or a hose end sprayer. When using you hose-end sprayer, you want to make sure that the settings are correct for the amount of product you are using per 1000 sq. ft. †We do not actually carry the Ortho brand so are unable to provide the exact setting.

QHow much Surge Broadleaf Herbicide for Turf do you use on kentucky bluegrass with this sprayer?
Hello I have been using a two gallon pump sprayer with this but it is to small for the size of my lawn.
AWhen using Surge Broadleaf Herbicide to treat Kentucky Bluegrass 3.25 to 4 Pints/Acre (1.2 to 1.5 fl. oz./ 1,000 sq. ft.) is a application rate that is recommended regardless if you are using a pump sprayer or a hose end sprayer. When using you hose end sprayer you want to make sure that the settings are correct for the amount of product you are using per 1000 sq. ft. or acre

QCan Surge be mixed with MSMA Target 6 Plus?
AYes, Surge Broadleaf Herbicide can be mixed with other herbicides, such as MSMA Target 6 Plus. We would recommend mixing a small amount together to ensure that there is no clumping. The label for Surge does state that you will need to pre-mix the product with water before adding any other herbicides.

QWill Surge broadleaf herbicide kill new grass that has been mowed one time
ASurge Broadleaf Herbicide for Turf is listed to be applied top established turf. Please try and wait until the grass has been mowed at least two times.

QWill surge kill yellow pine tree seedlings?
I have volunteer pine tree seedlings in rock flower beds will surge kill those? I would like them gone.
ASurge is not labeled for trees or similar brush, so it will have little to no effect on the seedlings. For post-emergent control, you can spot treat with a non-selective herbicide such as Fertilome Brush Killer and Stump Killer with Triclopyr, keeping in mind that this will affect the flowers if it contacts them. Unfortunately, products that will be labeled for trees and woody plants will also affect the flowers that you want to keep.

QWhen is the best time to mow, directly before or 24 hours after applying Surge?
AYou can mow your grass 2 days before applying Surge Broadleaf Herbicide for Turf and at least 3-4 days after application.
10/04/2013 Sean from Pensacola Fl
QThe label for Surge really doesn't specify on use for St. Augustine?
Can the product be used?
AThe Surge Broadleaf Herbicide does state on the label not to apply to St. Augustine grass so we can not recommend using this product on this type of lawn. Our most popular general weed control product that is selective and can be used on St. Augustine grass is End Run. End Run is labeled for just about any weed you could have and will not harm your grass. Best of all, it comes with a surfactant already mixed in the product so you do not have to purchase and mix a surfactant separately like you do with most of the other herbicides that we sell.

QIs it dangerous to eat herbs and vegetables near where Surge was sprayed (not directly applied)?
AAs long as the product did not get on the edibles or into the dripline/root system of the edible plants then no harm should come from eating ones near a treated area. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
08/14/2013 Adam from East Hanover Nj
QHow soon after applying Surge Broadleaf Herbicide can a dog go on the lawn?
AKeep pets out of the area during treatment and until the product has had time to completely dry(1-2 hours) and absorb into the plant. Once dry the pet can resume normal activity in the treated areas. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
