  • Anyone Smuggling in Weed Killer?

    I think I need to make a trip to Buffalo to buy some 2,4D weed killer. The enviro friendly stuff just doesn't work. I pull the dandelions, but the Creeping Charlie and other unknowns are taking over.

    2,4D was the active ingredient in most weed killers up until 2008 when they were banned in Ontario. Is it illegal to bring 2,4D into Ontario or just illegal to use it?

    By the way, I never sprayed the whole lawn, just spot sprayed as needed. A tiny bottle of 2,4D lasted me 8 years.

    I will be doing the same next weekend.


    I brought back 2 bottles last summer with no issue and I did claim it when I went through customs along with some clothes from the outlet mall.

      A buddy of mine did this and an unfriendly neighbor reported him to the authorities when he saw the dead weeds.

        What happened? I have a big bottle of Killex concentrate, but afraid to use it. My neighbour however, has a lawn full of clover and dandelions that like to make their way over to my lawn.

          Doesn't vinegar work to kill weeds?

            Not sure. I think he got a visit from a municipal inspector reminding him that weed killers are banned.

              Maybe some of those wimpy little weeds.

              My last batch of pulled dandelions that got thrown into a yard waste bag, still grew, opened, bloomed, and went to seed in the bag in my garage 3 days later. I expect they would have enjoyed a nice sip of vinegar.

                I think you can still get the good stuff at a TFC store.

                Could be wrong, but I heard a lawn care guy say that.

                  I have a concentrate weedex from about 6 0r7 years ago and I used it last year although over time it has got a little less effective, i think it is still better than the weed B gone product out there.
                  I tried vinegar but it did and didn't work. My issue is not dandelions but this very low weed that spreads like wildfire with broad leaves...possibly creaping charlie...not sure.

                  If an inspector came by why cant you say you used vinegar or weed B gone...I mean if they are supposed to work how would he know?

                  I going to buy a bottle and keep it handy of they ever come and gove me grief.

                      Put it on Fall and Spring and next year you should not have weeds. Worked for me. Will not help you this year as it prevents germination.

                          No super in his right mind would do this. If caught, he'd lose his license to use it and I'm sure his job as well.

                            Not illegal to bring it over. I brought some back. Declared it at border, since they are a federal agency they dont regulate Ontario laws. Only illegal to use it`. Do not forget to bring some pesticide for grubs while your at it

                              I've used the vinegar in the cracks of my walkway and patio stones. It does ok but I think week killer from the US would be better.
