    I got my 2oz of Blade today in the mail, how can I mix this stuff??

    Aslo, is this a topical or systemic hrebicide?
    Im looking to apply on St. Augustine grass at a rate of 0.5oz an acre.

    My yard is 1000sq ft. and a 3 gallon sprayer. I have no real measuring devices this small

    What to do?

    No measuring device here!! and the directions suck!

    I need 0.125oz in 5 gallons of water. to cover my yard. 10.000sqft
    Does this stuff have to be watered in or applied days before rain?

    0.125oz = 3grams

    1 penny = 3.5 grams

    Postage scale will work right if calabrated to a penny?

    A good chemicals dealer will help you measure it. Not likely to find such a dealer. But take it to your pharmacy where you do the most business. Ask them to weigh out .125 ounces for you. You may have to ask nicely, beg and plead, or offer them cash.

    I had to go to three stores before i found a cooperative pharmacist.

    A scales company might help you. Or sometimes a postage scale or dietary scale would have the proper capicity.

    Difficult Problem to solve.

    Go back to the dealer that sold you th blade and get the measuring devise. The measuring devise will attach to the bottle.
