You’ve got the yard looking green and gorgeous and ready for an eventful summer. The patio is ready for entertaining, and the lawn is a perfect stage for events and parties. This epic summer is in full swing and everyone is invited — except for insects, pests and weeds.

There are some proven simple steps to quickly keep these nags off the guest list. That way, you can relax and enjoy your summer just the way you planned.

Scotts Weed Control

Weeds are the enemy of any beautiful lawn. Don’t let them ruin your outdoor party space. Ortho Weed B Gon Max plus Crabgrass Control Ready-To-Use with Comfort Wand kills broadleaf and grassy weeds in one easy step.

It helps keep your green, grassy carpet looking beautiful by killing weeds, not the lawn, guaranteed. It controls common and tough weeds including crabgrass, dandelions, clover and chickweed. The Comfort Wand has an extended reach and easy-spray function to cut your time spent spraying in half for maximum productivity.

Insects and pests can be difficult to control. With Ortho Bug B Gon Insect Killer Granules for Lawns, the ants, ticks and spiders that used to ruin parties will now be fleeing from the scene. A single application, with a thorough watering in, helps keep pests from crashing your summer fun for up to three months.

Now that your lawn is safe, you can also protect your flower beds, landscaped areas and hard surfaces from weeds with Roundup Ready-To-Use Weed and Grass Killer III with Sure Shot Wand. The Sure Shot Wand features a shield that helps protect your desirable plants from spray and the wand that extends two feet for more targeted control. It’s no longer a chore to kill the toughest weeds to the root, guaranteed.*
