Image is a post-emergent herbicide prescribed for use on a broad range of summer weeds. For the best results, spray Image on weeds when they are actively growing. This way the weed tissue will readily absorb the herbicide and carry it down to its roots. Image herbicide comes in concentrate form and can be mixed in small amounts for spot treatments, or in larger batches for larger coverage areas like lawns.

Mix Image herbicide for use in a small-trigger sprayer. Fill the reservoir with 2 tsp Image Consumer Concentrate per 16 ounces of water. It will take 1 to 5 gallons of this mixture to cover 1,000 square feet.

Mix Image herbicide for use in a large-pump sprayer. Fill the reservoir with 5 tbsp Image Consumer Concentrate per gallon of water. It will take 1 to 5 gallons of this mixture to cover 1,000 square feet.

Mix Image herbicide for use in a "dial and spray" type hose-end applicator. Pour 15 ounces of Image Consumer Concentrate into the plastic reservoir. Then set the dial to 4 tbsp. This mixture will cover 4,000 square feet.

Mix Image herbicide for use in a "sprayette" type hose-end applicator. Pour 7.5 ounces of Image Consumer Concentrate into the reservoir. Then fill the reservoir with water until the solution reaches the 4-gallon mark. This mixture will cover 2,000 square feet.

 

Tip

  • Always wear gloves, goggles, a long-sleeved shirt and pants when handling and applying herbicides.
