*Scotts Dial and Spray is made for applying Killex Concentrate. Available at most hardware and lawn and garden stores. The sprayer attached to a garden hose and has a dial to adjust the rate of application.
1. Set the dial on the Dial ‘N Spray® applicator to 6 and follow label directions.
2. If mixing in a backpack or handheld sprayer, add 6 mL (approximately a teaspoon and a half) per 1 L of water.
3. Once water has been added to the mixture in a handheld sprayer or backpack, add a tablespoon or more of dish soap. This will help the herbicide stick to the leaves of the plant
4. When spraying weeds, ensure the herbicide is applied to the leaves of the plant. Spraying only the flowers is not effective for control.
