A Weed & Feed that Prevents Fire Ants

A lush, green lawn you’ll love to use is within reach, even in the hot climate of the South.

A lush, green lawn you'll love to use is within reach, even in the hot climate of the South. Weeds, fire ants, heat, and drought are all pesky issues that may stand between you and the enjoyment of your lawn, but dealing with them doesn't have to be time-consuming or difficult. You can face those problems head-on with a unique 3-in-1 formula: new Scotts® Turf Builder® Southern Triple Action, a combination weed killer and fertilizer for Southern lawns that also kills and prevents fire ants. Use it and you'll be left with more time to actually enjoy your lawn with your family, plus you'll save money since you only need one product to tackle multiple problems.

While your yard may face the triple challenge of weeds, fire ants, and hot Southern conditions, Scotts® Turf Builder® Southern Triple Action helps you combat all three when applied as directed to St. Augustinegrass (including Floratam), centipedegrass, zoysiagrass, and carpetgrass.

Apply Scotts® Turf Builder® Southern Triple Action twice a year while the grass and weeds are actively growing (once in spring, after the grass has emerged from winter dormancy, and again in late summer to help the lawn recover from stresses like heat and encourage deep root growth). Its unique 3-in-1 formula of weed killer, fire ant killer, and lawn fertilizer will work to kill weeds, stop the formation of new fire ant mounds, and feed the lawn, all at the same time. Simply use a spreader (available at any garden center or home improvement store) to apply it, following the directions on the label.

Here's how Scotts® Turf Builder® Southern Triple Action works:

It Kills Weeds

When used as directed, Scotts® Turf Builder® Southern Triple Action kills actively growing weeds, including some of the worst offenders of the weed world:

  • Dollarweed
  • Clover
  • Dandelion
  • Chickweed
  • Plantain
  • Henbit
  • Oxalis
  • Spurge
  • Dichondra
  • Purslane

It Protects Against Fire Ants

Your lawn is meant for carefree relaxation, summer barbecues, and pickup games with the kids, not battles with fire ants. Yet it can feel like a full time job to deal with their nests, which seem to pop up out of nowhere. Enter Scotts® Turf Builder® Southern Triple Action: When applied as directed, it immediately goes to work, killing fire ants and preventing new mounds from forming for up to 6 months.

It Feeds the Lawn to Protect Against Summer Stress

Hungry lawns get stressed more easily by extremely hot and dry periods. A lawn fertilized with Scotts® Turf Builder® Southern Triple Action twice a year will grow long roots that can reach into deeper groundwater sources, helping it become more tolerant of both drought and disease. You'll also notice denser turf growth, which helps the soil hold water longer by shading it from the sun so moisture evaporates more slowly. The result? A thick, green lawn that is better able to weather the stresses of a Southern summer.

With Scotts® Turf Builder® Southern Triple Action, you'll have more time to kick back and enjoy your thick, lush lawn with your family and friends. Now get outside and have fun on that gorgeous stretch of green!
