Celsius spot spraying

I did some minimal spot spraying Thursday afternoon on my neighbors lawn and my own. I used a rate of 1 teaspoon to 1 gallon of water along with a NIS. I checked the weather the day I sprayed And I wasn't supposed to get any precipitation till next Tuesday, but that was wrong and it rained today. Do you think my spot spray will be effective?

According to the label, yea, you may have to re-apply. Maybe Wait a week or 2 first and then re-apply.

I was planning to spray next week and saw rain on Tuesday as well so I was gonna wait till Wed.

rain interval herbicide

I don't know about your product.
In experiments I did two years ago, the herbicides I used on cool season grasses, 30 minutes was usually enough. I watered the weeds after 1 minute, 5 minutes, 15 minutes, 30 minutes and 45 minutes.

Celsius is not a product to use this time of year. Way too cold. It needs to be at least 80 degrees for it to work in a timely manner.

Like was said. Hold off on Celsius til summer. It has no temperature restrictions and you can do 2 blanket apps if needed.
