Q:What fungicide to kill mushrooms
by|Jun 16, 2021
2 Answers
Answer This Question

A:  We currently do not have a fungicide on our product line that is designed to eliminate mushrooms. Mushrooms are a natural part of any lawn usually caused by organic decaying materials beneath the soil. Jessica

by|Jun 17, 2021

    A:  This one isn't effective on mushrooms. If they're scattered within the lawn, I just mow and knock them down. If they're away from grass, I spray a vinegar/water mix on them and that will actually get rid of them. But I don't use it in the lawn because it will kill grass as well.

      A:  It will treat this problem but I think you need to get to the root cause. I used 3 bags last summer it helped but did not cure the problem. Kate

      by|Jun 14, 2021

      A:  I've had very good success with this product on red thread. If you don't have a large area of it...maybe just spots.....try the hose spray version of this same fungus control. It takes care of mine practically overnight.

      Q:I have patches of orange-ish color grass, along wirh brown spots where it isnt growing at all. Will this product help me get back my green grass

      Answer This Question

      A:  Since itt looks like what you have now is an area of dead grass, it's hard to tell from the photo if it's fungus related or perhaps something from a spill or even an insect problem. This Bioadvanced product is a very good all-around control and could help. Is it currently still spreading? If so, you might consider the Bioadvanced liquid version of fungus control (easy to use...just attaches to your hose), and see if it works. But the first thing I'd do is take the photo to a garden center, ask for a lawn specialist, and get his/her opinion. That person may have some knowledge of a similar problem in your area. You might get a well-educated answer and avoid putting a product down unnecessarily.

      by|Jun 1, 2021

      A:  Might be too late but I’d try it to clean the soil up with the fungicide.

            Q:Will it kill funges on boxwoods
            by|Apr 20, 2021
            3 Answers
            Answer This Question

            A:  This product is formulated to cure fungus in lawns not shrubs. There are other liquid spray-on products specifically for shrubs.

            by|Apr 21, 2021

            A:  Well there is one answer with two results : Sometimes - sometimes it will kill the disease AND sometimes it severely weakens the bush.

            by|Apr 24, 2021

            A:  Hello Clifton! The Fungus Control for Lawns is designed to kill listed lawn fungus. For fungus on boxwood shrubs I would recommend applying our 3 in 1 Insect, Disease, & Mite Control spray. Jessica

              Q:Can I put this down at the same time as overseeding my lawn?

              3 Answers
              Answer This Question

              A:  According to the package, yes. It states, "...can be applied after seeding or at seed germination."

              A:  If you are treating an active lawn fungus we would recommend not seeding until the fungus has been controlled. You may reseed 3 weeks after application. If applying to new grasses you would want to have mowed at least 3 times to ensure that the new grass is established. Jessica

              by|Sep 21, 2020

                A:  I think the short answer is yes you can. I have used this product in the fall many times but my overseeding of Rye grass seed for the winter usually comes a bit later in the fall - after my fungus has either moderated or has already devoured my yard.

                Answer This Question

                A:  You can use it anytime. It is probably needed more during the rainy season as fungus often occurs where it's wet for a long time.

                A:  You may apply as long as temperatures are between 50-85 degrees. Once the product has been watered in and allowed to dry completely it does become rain proof however we do recommend applying when rain is not expected for 24 hours to allow ample dry time. We recommend watering in manually with 1/4-1/2 inch of water for best results of the product. Jessica

                  A:  Yes but it should be applied when the grass is somewhat dry and given a chance to settle before being watered in.

                  A:  I have a very large St Bernard....never an issue. I DO, however, water it in before she goes back out (just to get the granules to the soil)

                  by|Sep 15, 2020

                  A:  Yes, once the product is watered in and allowed to dry then pets can re=enter the area.

                  by|Sep 17, 2020

                  A:  Yes and no. You can put it down and water it in after a persons. From the time you put it down till it’s been watered in and DRY, you should Not allow pets on the grass.

                  by|Dec 12, 2020

                  A:  I also have a dog. Once I put down the fungus control I hosed down the lawn. I have used it 3 times this season, there were no adverse effects on my dog. Hope this helps. Kate

                  by|Sep 14, 2020

                  A:  To keep pets safe while using the product we recommend keeping them out of the area during application and once watered in and allowed to dry completely it will be safe for pets to reenter the treated area. Jessica

                    Q:Can i use it with an inline irrigation feeder? I have a feeder that has a basket for granules. I did not see a liquid version of this product.

                    Answer This Question

                    A:  I don't know about the irrigation feeder. Maybe it's in the fine print on the bag or do a chat with a Bioadvanced rep. It's easy to put on with a spreader though. It DOES come in a liquid form from Bioadvanced (as a bottle to attach to your hose). Works well, but you should probably turn your faucet up to only a third or so, and really pay attention to how much is left in the bottle as you walk.

                    by|Sep 12, 2020

                    A:  For best results of the product we would recommend applying using a drop or rotary spreader. You will use either 2-3.5 lbs per 1,000 sq. ft. depending on if you are using as a preventative or a curative. After spreading the granules you will need to water in with 1/4-1/2 inch of water to activate the fungicide. If you should need further assistance with this issue please feel free to reach out to us at 1-877-229-3724. We are available Monday-Friday 8:30-5 PM (CT). Jessica

                    by|Sep 14, 2020

                      A:  This product most definitely comes in many liquid forms - premixed in spray bottles and a concentrated version in a non-spray bottle. A simple search on the internet will show you all of the BioAdvanced options that are readily available at most retailers in your area. The granular version you are asking about might work in your inline irrigation feeder but I am not totally sure. If it were to work, the granules would have to dissolve properly in the system for an even disbursement over your yard and I would think this could lead to clogging issues within your system and not sure how you would keep it filled with the granules long enough to have any significant effect. To know for sure, you would have to contact the manufacturer for a higher level of support hoping they have tested for your situation and could give you an answer based on their research and testing. Good luck.

                      Answer This Question

                      A:  I would not. Each has the specifications for how thick it should be spread. Mixing them means you’re going to compromise one for the other. I would spread one and then spread the other separately.

                      by|Dec 12, 2020

                      A:  While we do not recommend combining our products with others or applying at the same time, an insecticide may be applied once BioAdvanced Fungus Control For Lawns has been applied, watered in and has dried. -Madison
