Tips for First Celsius Spray

5907 Views 36 Replies 16 Participants Last post by  CenlaLowell
Any gotchas for my first Clesius spray tomorrow morning? Applying to the entire yard this time to try to knock out whatever weed it is that @gatormac2112 has and has really gone nuts in my yard recently. Obviously getting the app rate right is important. Using a surfactant.

Anything outside the ordinary that I should think of?

Make sure you've calibrated your sprayer, I don't use tracking dye, I just follow the mowing lanes and eyeball how wide it's spraying. Not as exact as dye, but I just hate messing with dye, it gets everywhere :lol:

Make sure it's not too windy before proceeding, and make sure you mix the right amount. I did the high dose which I believe was 1 teaspoon per gallon per 1000 square feet. I probably could have done half that dose.
I don't measure Celsius on a scale, the label says the high dose is 1 teaspoon = .113 oz

I do wear long pants, rubber boots and rubber gloves

$10. Worth it.
I have one, I just don't see the point for Celsius

EDIT: I realize how flippant that sounds after reading it. It's always best to measure to be sure.
I do the same thing, apply half dose in 4 gallons over 8000 square feet, then do it over again 90 degrees to the first pass.

I can't stand using dye. If you can walk a straight line along a mowing stripe you can do it without dye, especially if you are making two passes in different directions.

Marking dye on the other hand is serious stuff lol
No kidding - if marker dye were five loaves and two fish, I could feed 5,000 with it too; that stuff just goes and goes.
I get the stuff on my hand all the time. I'm a corporate lawyer and get the strangest looks in the office the next day when half my hand is faded blue. :lol:
That's why I opt not to use it. No matter how careful I am I get blue stuff where I don't want it :lol:
