Fighting Pests and Weeds the Easy Way with AMDRO PowerFlex ($50 Amex Giveaway)

1 Flares 1 Flares ×

This post about fighting pests with the new AMDRO PowerFlex system is brought to you by Central Garden & Pet. We don’t have a lot of issues (knock on wood) with pests and/or insects inside the house, but we do have pests in the form of weeds and more weeds. Plus they always bring their friends. While we don’t treat areas near our well at all, we do have areas in the yard that we’ve used weed killer on or other pest control products- but it’s always several different products in different packaging and different applicators. In other words, lots of space taken up and lots of things to go through. The new AMDRO PowerFlex is designed to streamline the whole weed and grass, indoor and outdoor insect problem by having one kind of universal applicator and smaller concentrates that you can quickly and easily change depending on your need at the moment. They’ve simplified the process to a 1-2-3 step thing!!

Step 1: Fill the gallon sized container with water (I’d like to thank the folks who designed this for making it a smaller sized container- it means those of us who aren’t super strong can still be able to use the product system).
Step 2: Twist on the concentrate you’d like to use
Step 3: Spray your product onto the pests or weeds. That’s it.

Want to change to another product quickly? Simply remove the concentrate you are finished with, flush the system for about 10 seconds, and twist a new concentrate into place. Easy, peasy. The system itself has a spot to store and go with 2 concentrates so you can cover more area or change to different product applications without having to walk back to the shed, garage, etc.

  • Vinegar is handy for battling weeds and ants. I fill a spray bottle with vinegar and target weeds. For large weedy areas, I use a bottle of vinegar. It kills them in a couple of days. I wipe down my kitchen counters with vinegar. Not only does it kill germs, it deters ants.

  • I have used vinegar mixed with salt to kill poison ivy but it does nothing to kill kudzu and other weeds. I’m eager to try Amdro. Portions of our yard is being claimed by kudzu and the only way we have of getting rid of it is to chop it back and do the same thing next year. ACK!! What a pain. an epic pain.
