WeedPharm – Handling, Application and Warning

Q: Is there a place in Georgia that sells WeedPharm or does it have to be ordered on line?

A: WeedPharm (www.pharmsolutionsinc.com) contains 20% acetic acid and is sold as a herbicide. It is not vinegar, which is 5% acetic acid and which is generally considered safe for home use. The 20% concentration of acetic acid is corrosive and causes irreversible eye damage. It is harmful if absorbed through skin. Applicators must wear a face shield or goggles, long sleeved shirt and long pants, waterproof gloves and shoes plus socks. You can order the product online but personally I consider it too dangerous to use in the landscape.
