I usually pull out the weeds, with a tool and do not use any type of chemical in our garden. Recently, I learned about the SmartOnes Precision Sprayer, which is a multipurpose tool designed to easily eliminate weeds and ants from our lawn, patio and garden. This tool is designed by Premier Tech, a Canadian company.
The tool is precise, handy and easy to use. Its protective shield allows gardeners to accurately target weeds and ants, while protecting neighbouring garden plants from spray drifts. The height of this tool 114 cm or 45" eliminates the need to kneel or bend down. Simply place over the targeted area and push down on the handle.
The starter kit, which includes the Precision Sprayer and a 500ml WeedOut Lawn Weed control cartridge is priced at $30. The replacement cartridges for herbicide for lawns (WeedOut), a herbicide for patios and gardens (WipeOut) and an insecticide for ants (AntOut) is priced at $10. The SmartOnes Precision Sprayer can be purchased at major retailers across Canada. Check out thinksmarter.com for more details.
The active ingredients for the SmartOnes are as follows: SmartOnes WeedOut - 12% sodium chloride (salt + water) SmartOnes WipeOut - 7% acetic acid (vinegar + water) AntOut, the main ingredient in the water based formula is permethrin, a pyrethroid that is similar to pyrethrin (which comes from the chrysanthemum flower). In regards to pets, keep them out of the area where the AntOut has been applied until the spray has dried.
