About Fiesta broadleaf weed killer for lawns
What is fiesta weed control?
Fiesta weed control is a post-emergent herbicide that controls weeds in turf and ornamental landscapes. It targets weeds like crabgrass, dandelions, foxtail, and thistles while leaving desirable plants unharmed. Fiesta is a natural alternative to the traditional three-way chemical herbicides such as Killex that have been banned in the province of Ontario.
Is fiesta weed control safe?
Fiesta weed control is generally safe for use around residential lawns, gardens, and ornamental landscapes. It is a very low-toxicity product that breaks down quickly in the environment. However, it should not be used on grasses such as St. Augustine or Bermuda since they are sensitive to this herbicide. As with any pesticide, it is important to always read and follow the label instructions.
Why is Fiesta called a selective broadleaf weed control product?
Fiesta is a selective broadleaf weed control product because it selectively targets and kills weeds while leaving desirable plants unharmed. It uses an active ingredient called fenoxaprop-ethy, which targets photosynthesis in the weeds, stopping their growth and eventually killing them. With regular application of Fiesta, you can keep your lawn looking its best without worrying about damaging desired plants.
How does Fiesta weed control work?
Fiesta weed control works by targeting photosynthesis of weeds, stopping their growth and eventually killing them. It should be applied directly to the foliage of weeds for maximum effectiveness. It works best when temperatures are between 55 – 85°F (13 – 29°C). It takes up to two weeks for weeds to die after application.
What are the benefits of using Fiesta weed control?
Fiesta weed control is a fast-acting and effective product that controls weeds in turf and ornamental landscapes. Its low toxicity makes it safe for use around residential areas. Additionally, it breaks down quickly in the environment and does not accumulate in soil or water. Finally, it is easy to apply with a sprayer and can be used throughout the entire growing season.
Is Fiesta weed control safe for pets and other animals?
Fiesta weed control is safe for pets and other animals when used according to label instructions. It contains an active ingredient called fenoxaprop-ethyl which targets photosynthesis in the weeds, stopping their growth and eventually killing them. Fiesta will not harm desirable plants or animals near the treated area when applied correctly. However, keeping pets and other animals out of the treated area is important until the product has dried completely. Additionally, wash your hands after handling Fiesta weed control, and wear protective clothing when applying the product.
What is the active ingredient in Fiesta weed killer?
The active ingredient in Fiesta® Lawn Weed Killer is iron. The iron is chelated (bound to a special carrier molecule), so it is easy to dissolve in water and get into the weed. This allows for effectively targeting broadleaf weeds while leaving your grass unharmed. Fiesta’s fast-acting formula kills the targeted weeds, turning them dark and dry (sometimes called necrosis). There is no need to water the lawn after application, and it is safe for children and pets to go on once it has dried. Additionally, any residual Fiesta will simply add to the colour of your lawn.
When is the best time to apply fiesta weed control?
The best time to apply Fiesta weed control is early spring before weeds can be established. This ensures that the herbicide will be most effective at preventing weed growth. Additionally, keeping up with regular applications throughout the growing season is important as new weeds may emerge. By consistently applying Fiesta weed control, you can ensure your lawn is weed-free all season long.
Is Fiesta weed control available for public sale in Canada?
Fiesta weed remover is not for sale in retail stores like Canadian Tire, Home Depot, or any other big-box stores in Canada. You can only buy Fiesta Weed Control if you are a lawn expert and have an account with Turf Care Supply.

They are only effective on broadleaf weeds like Dandelion, English Daisy, False Dandelion, White Clover, Black medic, Bull Thistle, Canada Thistle, Common Chickweed, etc. These products will not kill all your weeds.
The approach we recommend for limiting the spread of other weeds is to keep your lawn fertilize at least three times a year to encourage thick green growth. You should never cut your lawn lower than three inches (3). This approach will suffocate the development of the other weeds.
