Eco-friendly Avenger® Weed Killer is an organic, non-selective, post-emergence herbicide that is quick and effective without causing harm to the environment. Avenger® Weed Killer is fast acting product that provides visible results in less than 2 hours; it is highly biodegradable and dissipates quickly. The active ingredient d-limonene (citrus oil) naturally strips away the waxy plant cuticle, causing it to dehydrate and die. University and independent testing results prove that Avenger® Weed Killer is as effective, but faster acting when compared against leading synthetic herbicides.When tested against non-organic 'natural' herbicides that contain vinegar (acetic acid), citric acid, clove oil, or fatty acids (soap), it is more effective with quicker results.
