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.
