Preen® doesn't kill weeds - it prevents new weeds by stopping weed seeds from rooting. No roots, no weeds, no weeding. With one easy application, this Preen® also kills foraging ants before they can invade your home and kills biting fleas before they latch onto your pets. Plus it kills the ticks that may carry Rocky Mountain spotted fever and Lyme disease.
Apply any time during the growing season around established plants and transplants in foundation, flower and landscape beds. See the product label for specifics. One bottle protects 1,000 square feet for up to 4 months. Preen®'s jug-handled bottle comes with a flip-top applicator cap, making it easy to spread the product granules evenly on top of mulch or garden soil. Reapply every four months for season-long protection.
When to Apply
- Apply Preen®® Weed Preventer Plus Ant, Flea and Tick Control anytime during the growing season. Apply only around established plants and transplants. It should not be used on flower seeds, but may be used after flowering plants have germinated and are 2-3 inches tall. Since it does not kill existing weeds, you must first remove any weeds that have already begun to grow. To keep ornamental beds free all season long of listed weeds and insects, reapply this product every 4 months.
How to Apply
- Sprinkle the product granules evenly over soil or mulch in flower and landscape beds. Apply when plants are dry so granules don't stick to foliage. If stray granules land on foliage, dry brush them off. It's very important to water the product in, or apply just prior to rain. Water activates both the weed preventer and the insect killer. Do not water to the point of soil run-off. Once activated by watering in, this product forms a barrier in the top layer of soil or mulch to prevent listed weed seeds from germinating. The product will also kill listed insects that enter the treated bed on contact. This is a surface insect control product — do not apply to insect mounds or tunnels. Disturbance to the soil surface after activation may result in erratic control.
Applying with Mulch
- For best control of listed weeds and insects, we recommend applying Preen®® Weed Preventer Plus Ant, Flea and Tick Control on top of mulch. Spread a layer of mulch on your flower and shrub beds, then sprinkle the product on top. Water the product into the mulch to activate. Always brush off stray granules from plant foliage as it may burn or discolor the leaves.
