Organic Weed Control

Bonide Captain Jack's Deadweed Brew®

Finalsan Organic Weed KillerBonide Captain Jack's Deadweed Brew is a patented fast-acting weed, grass, algae, and moss killers that represents a new class of products for organic weed control that does not contain glyphosate or other toxic chemicals!  Utilizing concentrated and potent and non-staining fatty acids (soaps), Captain Jack's Deadweed Brew is a non-selective herbicides and the best new top-of-the-line technology for fast-acting and through killing or suppression of many common annual, biennial, and perennial weeds, algae and mosses. A great organic product for use when conventional herbicides are banned or not desired!

Herbicidal soaps work by  penetrating the waxy cuticle of plants, causing the plant to dehydrate and die. The active ingredients accumulate in plants and cause intracellular damage, leading to cell death. Activity is non-selective and will kill plants the soap comes into contact with, but will not translocate to underground portions of the plant or harm the bark of mature, woody plants. Can be safely sprayed around the base of trees, shrubs, hops, grapes without worry.
