Looking to banish foreign invaders from your garden? It’s important to consider a pet friendly weed killer if you share your home with four legged residents.
As spring turns into summer across the Australian landscape, warming temperatures give weeds the green light to start taking hold in your yard, garden, crop or pasture. As the heat rises, the weed increases the thickness of the cuticle, which is the nearly impenetrable covering on the plant. And as the cuticle thickens and internal water movement slows, your conventional herbicide drips off the weed with little impact – sounds frustrating right?
For Australians on the hunt for a glyphosate free and pet friendly weed killer, the options have been limited – and left many with the choice of prioritizing performance over safety. The good news is that a solution has finally hit the market, and it’s been in the making for twenty years.
Sourcing A Pet Friendly Weed Killer In Australia
If you’ve been on the hunt for a pet friendly weed killer and ultimately a healthy way to spray, then the good news is that Bioweed may be just the product you’ve been looking for.
Bioweed is a certified organic input, non selective weed killer that works fast on contact with the weed, in order to rapidly desiccate even the most stubborn of plants. It can be used anywhere around the house including garden beds, veggie patches, paths and driveways, and is safe to use around children, animals and even native wildlife.
The best part? Bioweed is the brainchild of well established agricultural leaders Greenpro, and is backed by over twenty years of research and development. Owned and manufactured in Australia, the active ingredient of Bioweed is actually sustainably sourced pine oil, and is even approved by NASAA, ACO and APVMA for use around organic farms and food production.
Just a handful of the key takeaways from using a Bioweed include:
- Visible symptoms on some weed species after just one hour
- Organic certification
- Controls a wide range of common weeds and grasses
- Non residual herbicide, breaking down in the soil within 72 hours
- Kills both weeds AND their seeds
- Safe to use around children, pets, vegetables and gardens
- 100% synthetic chemical free and glyphosate free
- Owned and produced in Australia
Bioweed agronomist (and horse enthusiast) Logan Brown actively uses the product on her property, and loves the convenience of not having to move her livestock or keep an eye on her dogs when spraying.
“My advice for using Bioweed would be to ensure that if you’re controlling taller broadleaf weeds, try and slash them before applying the Bioweed. It will make sure you get full coverage of the plant, and ensure you get the best results quickly and economically.”
