TurfMark Blue dye indicator concentrate. Turf Mark Blue is mixed at a rate of 1/2 - 1 oz. of concentrate per 1 to 3 gallons of liquid insecticide.
TurfMark is mainly used for pre-construction termite treatments to mark where the termite spray was applied, such as on wood studs or foundational wood or concrete. When applied to turf, the product disappears within 24-48 hours. Do not use for general pest control treatments around a home as the product will stain and can be difficult to remove.
If you are treating the foundation studs with a product like Boracare which dries clear, an inspector would have no idea where or if the wood was sprayed. With Turf Mark Blue, the Boracare will leave a blue tint on the wood, which makes the pre-treatment easily identifiable by an inspector in the future.

Allows you to see where you have already treated

In the past I have wasted herbicides, etc by respraying areas I had already treated. This product allows you to see where you've covered by tinting with a bluish tint. For my 60 year-old eyes I like to mix it up a little bit stronger than the label recommends. Good product that saves me time & dollars.

I purchased Turf Mark to spray a small paddock with herbicide using a back pack sprayer. I mixed it at a rate of one oz per gallon of herbicide. It made spraying the area much easier, I was able to see exactly where I had sprayed so I didn't miss or over spray any areas. My sprayer holds 4 gallons so I started using only 3 oz for 4 gallons and it still marked the grass very well. It faded within about 3 days.

March 9, 2010Jason asked:
QHow do you get this Turf Mark Blue off your skin??
AYou can remove diluted Turf Mark Blue from your skin by washing the area several times with soap and water. If you should get concentrated Turf Mark Blue on your skin you would still wash several times with soap and water and then use a bleach solution of 20 parts water to 1 part bleach to help break down any remaining dye.
March 28, 2011Bill asked:
QCan Turf Mark Blue be used without mixing it with an insecticide?
I was watching Holmes On Homes the other night and they were using a blue liquid for termites on the wood. I noticed they were using a paint brush to apply it. I just wonder if this was the same stuff? He gave it very high praise.
ATurf Mark Blue can be used by itself without mixing it with anything other than water, however this product is a colorant only to mark where you have treated. It does not provide any preventative or treatment qualities of termites. However, this product is most often applied with Bora-Care, a product that is the best there is for treatment directly on wood and will protect against termites for the life of the wood. We are positive that the product he was painting on the wood was Bora-Care, with Turf Mark Blue mixed with it so you know what was treated.
August 26, 2011Bonnie from Diagonal, Ia asked:
QWill the blue tint stay on the wood or will it soak in?
I've read on this site's description of Turf Mark that if used on foundation studs of new homes the termite inspector can tell in the future where the Bore-Care spray has been applied. This seems to indicate that the tint remains on the wood!
AThat is correct. Turf Mark Blue when used in a borate solution will penetrate through the wood with Bora-Care and stay in the wood forever. It will in a sense stain the wood so you will forever be able to tell where you applied the product.
November 4, 2011Alee from Vega Baja, Pr asked:
QI want to know if Turf Mark Blue is safe for mix and spray with herbicides.
ATurf Mark Blue is made specifically to mix with herbicides and other products so you can see where you have already sprayed.
