Cut stump application - now it’s even easier to fight woody weeds:
- Step 1. Cut stems horizontally 20 mm and preferably no higher than 100 mm above ground level.
- Step 2. Squeeze Vigilant II brush bottle to apply a 3-5 mm thick layer of gel over the cut stem surface remaining on the plant.
- Step 3. Repeat on other weeds until gel in bottle is finished.
- Notes: On stems greater than 20 mm in diameter apply at least a 5 mm thick layer on the cut stem surface remaining on the plant. On multi-stemmed plants, treat the main stems as well as all the other minor stems for the same plant. Vigilant II should be applied immediately to the cut stem – certainly no longer than one minute after you’ve made the initial cut. If treating old stumps, re-cut and then apply.
Scrape & paint technique:
- Step 1. Cut a series of blazes 15-20 mm deep around the main trunks of the tree with an axe or pruning saw; make the blazes evenly spaced with no more than a 20-40 mm gap between each blaze.
- Step 2. Squeeze Vigilant II brush bottle to apply 5 mm thick layer over the lower cut surface of each blaze.
Drill & fill technique:
- Step 1. On rhizomatous plants prune the shoots horizontally and if more than four rhizomes per shoot drill a 10 mm hole in every fourth rhizome to a depth of 80% of the rhizome.
- Step 2. Squeeze Vigilant II brush bottle to apply 3-5 mm thick layer across the cut surface or fill the drill hole with Vigilant II.
