herbicides that have froze.

I have a client that has some 3-way that he had in the garage that isn't heated. my question is, is it still ok after it has prob. been frozen? I live in a very cold area. Near Buffalo NY.

frozen weed control

Usually herbicides should be stored at temps above 40 degrees.
If they freeze they will often congeal or just not work as well.

Put a small amount in some water. If it doesn't turn to soup, go ahead and use it. It may just not work as well or at all. If not,
ask your disposal service if they have a place to dispose of this
kind of product. Usually they do.

herbicides like 3-way would not be affected by excessive temps, cold or hot. Usually, the label will have very clean tempurature storage conditions indicated.

From our experience


The results are unpredictable. It can be used, it will work, not consistent.

For some reason GLAN, when I read your post, my mind gave your words a Yoda like voice.

I know I am showing my age by posting that, but it made me laugh and I thought I should share.
