    Just wondering if anyone can tell me how long would they "keep on spraying" their left over Momentum and sticker mix?

    Will heat have any NEGATIVE effects to the turfgrass? Will Momentum change its effectiveness over time in a water solution?

    Depends on how hot it is. Heat can cause the PH to raise in the mix, therfore burning the turf it is applied to.

    Actually, it is usually the pH of the water used to mix your chemicals that affects the rate of degradation. That is why it is always stressed to mix only what you will use today. If you are mixing today, and planning on finishing the tank mix next week, you might not have very good success next week, LOL. Ester formulations are not that dramatically affected.
