Fiesta Vs Killex Table

This comparison table will help you see the differences between Fiesta and Killex weed control products.

Active Ingredients
The active ingredient of a product will tell you what the product is made of and what it will do to the weed. The active ingredient of the Fiesta Weed Killer is Iron HEDTA (FeHEDTA), and the active ingredient of Killex is 2,4-D, Mecoprop-P, and Dicamba.

Iron HEDTA (FeHEDTA) will kill the weed by absorbing into the plant through the leaves and then causing it to dehydrate and die. The 2,4-D, Mecoprop-P, and Dicamba in Killex will work together to kill the weed, causing it to grow too fast and then die.

What it Kill
Before you can purchase any product, you need to ensure that it will kill the type of weed you have. Fiesta is a weed killer that leaves lawns healthy and weed-free. It uses a specially formulated iron chelate solution. Fiesta can kill dandelions, plantains, clover, foxtail, quack grasses, barnyard grasses, curly dock, annual blue grasses, orchard grasses, catch weed, and many more weeds.

Ortho Killex Lawn Weed can control more than 50 types of lawn weeds. This includes dandelions, plantain, chickweed, clover, bedstraw, black medick (yellow clover), heal-all, ground ivy (creeping charlie), knotweed, ragweed, shepherd’s-purse, poison ivy,’s paintbrush, and buttercup.

Pet Safe
When you have pets, you need to be extra careful about the products that you use. Pets can be very sensitive to chemicals, and some weed killers can be harmful to them. Fiesta is safe to use around pets and children when used as directed. Ortho Killex is also safe to use around pets and children when used as directed.

Mixing Ratio
Another important factor to consider is the mixing ratio. The Fiesta Weed Killer has a mixing ratio of 5 oz. Per gallon of water. This means that you will need to use five ounces of Fiesta for every gallon of water that you use and which can cover 250 sq. ft. For every liter of water, you will need to mix 6 mL of Ortho Killex Lawn Weed to treat 50 square feet.

The mixing ratio is important because you need to ensure that you are using the right amount of product to be effective. If you use too much, then you could end up harming your plants. If you use too little, then the product will not be effective.

Where to Use?
The final factor to consider is where you will be using the product. Fiesta can be used on lawns, turf, golf courses, parks, playgrounds, cemeteries, and athletic fields. You can use Ortho Killex Lawn Weed on your property, but please avoid spraying flowers, shrubs, vegetables, and fruit crops.

How to Use?
Both need to mix with water before use for any weed & grass control. With these factors in mind, you should be able to decide which product is right for you. Thoroughly spray weeds to the point of runoff with a pump sprayer, hose-end sprayer, or backpack sprayer.

For best results, treat when weeds are young and actively growing. Re-treat as necessary. Be sure to avoid spraying on the desirable plant as they may also be harmed by the product. Fiesta and Killex are effective weed killers that will help keep your lawn looking great.

Our Observation
Our top choice is Fiesta Selective Weed Killer, which means it will kill most broadleaf weeds but not harm your lawn grasses. Ortho Killex Is A Lawn Weed Control Concentrate that also effectively controls lawn weeds but won’t harm any grass.

They are both easy to use, just mix them with water and apply using a pump sprayer, hose-end sprayer, or backpack sprayer. The main difference between fiesta and killex weed control is in the active ingredients. Fiesta contains iron, while Killex contains the chemical Dicamba.

Both work by absorbing through the leaves and causing the plant to grow too quickly, which then exhausts the plant’s food supply and kills it. Fiesta also has a slightly lower mixing ratio, so you don’t need to use as much of the product to achieve the same results.

For these reasons, we recommend Fiesta Selective Weed Killer for most people. However, if you have a particularly large area to treat or if you need to control a wide variety of weeds, Killex may be a better choice.
