Turf Mark Blue

TurfMark Blue dye indicator concentrate. Add a small amount to any insecticide concentrate and see exactly where you've sprayed. 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.

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.

    5 of 5 stars  Allows you to see where you have already treated
    By Bill in Hoover, AL on 06/14/2012
    Verified Purchase

    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.

    5 of 5 stars  Turf Mark
    By T. in Ellicott City, MD on 08/21/2012
    Verified Purchase

    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.

    By in Vermont on 07/16/2013

    The blue color contrasts just enough with the green grass to make it visible where it has been sprayed on the lawn. In sunny humid weather the color can fade within hours. So don't spray in the morning and expect to see where you sprayed and continue in the afternoon. Make your own Summer Windshield Washer Solution: Add 1/2 tsp of dish detergent and ONE DROP of Turf Mark Blue to a gallon of water. You can't tell the difference between the homemade and the stuff you pay for.

    Good service, good price. Waiting for the weather to cool before using it when I give my weeds a dose of Tenacity! I did find out that full strength bleach will remove the stain from skin. Minimize the time it is on your skin and wash it completely off.

  • 5 of 5 stars  Should have been using this all along
    By Susan in Atlanta, GA on 08/15/2016

    No telling how much Roundup I've wasted over the years since I really couldn't tell where I'd sprayed. This dye works really well and you can adjust how much you use depending on how long you need it to stay visible. Plus, it showed me that I really needed to use the Spreader Sticker as well to keep the herbicide on the leaves of the weeds longer. Adding dye to the spray tank makes it much easier to see the water level as you are filling it. Clear liquid is really hard to see. Use caution, though. Wear gloves and old shoes and socks because it will get on you. It does wash off fairly easily, though.

  • 1 of 5 stars  Not worth it
    By Matthew in Kutztown, PA on 07/13/2016

    Bought this for use in a John Deere 45 gallon tow behind sprayer spraying a herbicide. Doubled the amount recommended and with the exception of having a very slight blue tinge upon application the color faded within an hour. I had difficulty seeing where I had sprayed and I definitely missed spots on the 4 acres I sprayed. Worthless in my opinion.

    By Dennis in Southwest Fl on 06/02/2016

    Very satisfied with results. I have a few occurrences where sedge likes to pop out of my zoysia (which is nice and green) and spraying turf mark along with my herbicide and nonionic surfactant makes my weed control so much easier.

    By Al in OKC. OK on 04/03/2016

    Really helps to show where you have applied your weed control product and fades in a day or two. If you get some on your hands/fingers wash immediately and then in a week your smurf fingers will be gone.

    2 of 5 stars  Invisible dye
    By Dave in Seattle, Washington on 08/31/2014
    Verified Purchase

    The dye was almost invisible. But it wasn't a fair test. The Prodiamine that I was using had a strong yellow color. Adding the blue colorant to it resulted in a pleasing shade of green almost exactly matching my lawn. By the way, per thousand square feet, the dye cost more than the Prodiamine that I was applying. After this, I will probably track my spraying progress with moveable stakes and watching my wheel tracks.

    3 of 5 stars  Not effective for low rate lawn spraying
    By Robert in Cicero, NY on 08/09/2014
    Verified Purchase

    Turf Mark Blue works very well when spraying at a high rates or when spraying over dormant or dry turf. It also works well seeing areas while spot spraying. However, I was unable to easily see my path on dark green grass with 1oz of blue per gallon spraying at a rate of 1 gal per 1500 sqft (31gal per acre rate). I was applying a post emergent over the entire yard using a 4 gal backpack sprayer.

    Works as expected, I was using it to spray BoraCare in a dimly lit basement. It helps with reducing over spray and with moving the ladder around etc it helps you know what areas you have already covered.

    By Monte in Nevada, MO on 04/01/2014
    Verified Purchase

    The Turf Mark Blue is a great product. It extends the coverage of other products by eliminating overlap. Mixes well with herbicides or pesticides. I got this on a white tee shirt and thought it was ruined but, two days of soaking in cold water completely removed the stain.

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.

QI made a mess with the Turf Mark Blue quart bottle. How does one use it?
I have used these two spout bottles, smaller versions, for gasoline additives. before. I had a difficult time refilling the small reservoir without getting my hands and surrounding area VERY blue.

We apologize that†Turf Mark Blue†turned out a mess for †you. Please see This video: How To†which shows you exactly how to squeeze the bottome of the bottle so the product goes up the straw on the side and into the measuring cup without touching you.

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.

QDo you have a tint we can add to Boracare to identify which areas have been treated?

AYes, you can add Turf Mark Blue to the Boracare to see exactly where you have treated wood and it will leave a slight blue residue once dried to show in the future that the wood has been treated. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

QI have a treated privacy fence that has not been stained yet. Will this permanently stain it?

APer the Turf Mark Label, Turf Mark Blue washes off most surfaces with soap and water, however This product may stain certain surfaces in pretreatment applications. We cannot guarantee that the blue hue will not be left in the wood and depending on the color stain you use will depend on whether it will cover it up or not.

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.
