How to Select Plant Control Products

Herbicides (Weed Killers) and Plant Control:

Before purchasing plant control products, consider the type of vegetation you are targeting. Also consider if the weed has already emerged or if you can prevent it with a pre-emergent herbicide. In areas with desirable grass and flowering plants, selective herbicides are advised.

For more information and recommendations for your region consult your local extension office.

How to Select Lawn & Garden Pest Control Products

Lawn Insect Control:

There are a variety of products available for lawn insect control. Some products target a wide variety of insects, while others are tailored to specific pests.

Specific Insects: For targeting a specific pest, refer to our crawling insect and flying insect categories for the best recommendations.

Broad Spectrum Insect Control: Bifen LP and Imidacloprid .5G granules are highly effective against a broad spectrum of crawling insects in the yard. Bifen LP is also labeled for fire ant prevention. Bifen IT spray (different than Bifen LP granules) is one of the most popular yard insect control products, because it targets a wide variety of insects. If using a spray, we recommend avoiding the flower parts of plants to protect beneficial pollinating insects.

  2. Bifen Granules LP Granules-25 lbs

    Starting at: $24.50

    ****Due to changes in shipping weight policies from all major package delivery services, we have worked with the manufacture to make a smaller bag to keep the price per lb the same.  We still offer the Bifen in 25lb bags but we will not have the same price breaks for multiple bags. Please contact for bulk purchases with the 25lb bag.

     One 25lb bag of Bifen Granules will cover about 5,000 to 10,000 square feet and is safe for non-target animals such as pets, mammals, birds, and reptiles. Bifen LP with its unique sand core structure is used to control fleas, ticks, crickets, ants (including imported fire ants), roaches, spiders, worms, and almost all other insect pests. Compare Bifen LP to Talstar PL Granular with the same active Ingredient, Bifenthrin 0.20%. Both Bifen LP and Talstar PL have the same label; Bifen LP is more economical.
