EcoMIGHT Weed and Grass Killer (W.O.W.) is  non-selective, naturally organic herbicide that works wonders for killing weeds and unwanted vegetation systemically. This means it kills to the roots. Leaving your property clear of any unwanted and unsightly growths. Unlike conventional herbicides, W.O.W. is safe for both people and animals (when used as directed). 

Glyphosate Issues

Most popular professional herbicides contain glyphosate. A 2015 report commissioned by the World Health Organization (WHO), said that glyphosate is “probably carcinogenic to humans.” As a result, thousands of lawsuits are making their way through the U.S. legal system against some of the more prolific glyphosate manufacturers. In fact, several countries have gone as far as to ban this herbicide completely, and many places in the U.S. are now following suit. Consequently, the majority of landscapers, golf superintendents, city officials, facilities managers, public works departments, power companies and groundskeepers are now looking for a natural weed and grass killer product to replace glyphosate. If you’re one of them, ‘you’ve found an alternative with EcoMIGHT. 

Kills to the roots. W.O.W. is translocated and absorbed by root system of the plant, resulting in a complete kill. 

W.O.W. (Whack Out Weeds!) is a non-selective and post emergent herbicide that is non-toxic. There is no re-entry period; this means it’s safe to go to the area that was sprayed immediately after application. When used as directed, W.O.W. can be used around people, kids, pets, and aquatic life. 

W.O.W. is systemic. This means it kills to the root. Unlike contact herbicides that kill only the part of the weeds, grass or plants that are contacted with chemicals, systemic herbicides are absorbed by the roots and translocated through the weeds.

 

Re-entry or restricted-entry interval (REI) is the time immediately after an application when entry into the treated area is prohibited. The good news is EcoMIGHT products are naturally organic and boast a REI of “ZERO MINUTES.”  EcoMIGHT products are formulated with natural ingredients and have a designation by the EPA  as Minimum Risk Exempt-FIFRA 25(b). This means, when used as directed, they are safe for kids, pets, aquatic life and pollinators. The “warning” signs to “Stay Off The Lawn”  can now be changed to “thank you” or “Stay ON The Lawn” signs. 

The media continues to reveal a growing list of dangers associated with glyphosate-based professional herbicides. So it’s hardly surprising consumers now favor natural weed killers that are safe for humans, animals, and the environment.

Professional Weed Killer 

When used as directed, W.O.W. doesn’t pose a threat to people, animals, bees, or aquatic life. Every ingredient in this natural herbicide appears on the Environmental Protection ‘Agency’s (E.P.A.) stringent minimum-risk exemption list.  

The EPA has determined that certain “minimum risk pesticides” pose little to no risk to human health or the environment. 

So, you can be confident this utterly biodegradable product is free of toxic chemicals.

Instead, this non-selective herbicide contains natural soaps and salts, which help keep your soil healthy and leaves groundwater uncontaminated. Boasting a no re-entry period, W.O.W. invites people and pets to enjoy the benefits of this natural weed killer immediately.

Besides being the best weed killer available, W.O.W. offers several other advantages.

This natural herbicide doesn’t stain pavements, gravel, brick, concrete, or stone. That means W.O.W. effectually destroys weeds without affecting the beauty of your hardscapes.

Although W.O.W.’s slightly more expensive than conventional products, several customers have found it more effective than traditional weedkillers. 

How?
It requires fewer re-applications, even when compared to best-selling ‘traditional’ products on the market.  This means less product will be used and a reduction on labor costs and time. In addition, there is no need for a sticker or adjuvant. 

Landscapers make a living from beautifying residential and commercial properties, so it almost goes without saying that W.O.W. allows landscapers to accomplish this mission successfully.

All without burning a hole in your wallet or polluting the environment with toxic chemicals. We believe that selecting W.O.W. gives landscapers a competitive advantage. Period.  After all, more and more property owners are seeking safe yet effective glyphosate-based product alternatives. 

Golf superintendents care for acres worth of golf courses as well as their surrounding landscapes. 

In light of everything we’ve just said, W.O.W. can play a crucial role in golf course care.

This means superintendents can keep their greens looking attractive while ensuring their club members and families aren’t exposed to toxic herbicides.

Also, by using this naturally organic product, you can lead the way when it comes to adopting eco-friendly-practices — make this known to your local community, not only is this an ethical thing to do but it’s also a fabulous selling point! 

The bottom line is that W.O.W. works as well (or better) than the majority of products golf superintendents are accustomed to — and more often than not, exceeding ‘superintendents’ very high expectations. 

It’s no coincidence that many of the highest-rated golf courses and resorts in the country now use W.O.W — and for a good reason!  

Groundskeepers take care of vast green spaces for property owners, businesses, and other commercial establishments. By selecting a naturally organic herbicide like W.O.W., groundskeepers can control unwanted weeds and grasses effectively. At the same time, they can also keep property owners, their customers, and their surrounding community protected from dangerous, toxic herbicides.  

Over 55 communities around the world are now using W.O.W.  Additionally, several colleges, equestrian facilities, world-famous cultural landmarks, and famous theme parks rely on EcoMIGHT!

One of the top questions a prospective student asks today when selecting a college revolves around the care of the environment and sustainability initiatives. Not only are today’s young adults acutely aware of environmental issues, but they also want a safe campus on which to work and live.

As a result, many university campus officials are looking for an alternative to glyphosate to control unwanted plant growth around campus. W.O.W. is an excellent naturally organic herbicide that can do the job. Not only is it extremely effective, but it has a no-re-entry period. That means students and faculty can safely enter a sprayed area immediately.  

Many colleges and universities have started sustainable practices included the use of EcoMIGHT products. In fact, Florida International University was quite surprised at the results after trying W.O.W.  Anthony Arriola, Associate Manager of Grounds and Facilites at Aramark , said “I can’t stress how surprised I am at how well EcoMIGHT works! The torpedo grass that we tested on is still dead since we sprayed back in November. I think that I can safely speak for the folks at Florida International University and say that we believe that you may have THE best alternative to glyphosate based herbicides.

Children trust parents, teachers, and other adults in their lives to keep them safe and healthy. They have no choice on where they attend school and spend the majority of their growing-up years; those decisions are made by their caretakers. Schools have the responsibility of not only educating children but ensuring their physical environment is a safe one.

With all the health concerns arising around the use of glyphosate-based herbicides, it’s important for schools to consider safer alternatives for weed-controlling products used around schools and playgrounds. When used as directed, W.O.W. is safe for children, animals, aquatic life, wildlife, pollinators,  the water supply, and the soil.

Utility companies are an important partner in our communities. Not only do they keep our gas, electric, and cable services coming into our homes uninterrupted, but they have the responsibility of keeping a great deal of public land cleared around power and utility lines. 

Besides trimming trees along lines, utility companies must manage weeds along these lines as well. 

As environmental and health concerns continue to rise surrounding toxic herbicides,  smart utility companies will begin exploring safer alternatives. W.O.W. provides the needed weed and vegetation control safely and effectively.

Railway companies around the world must control unwanted weed growth along thousands of miles of railroad tracks each year. Recently, Deutsche Bahn, the German state-owned railway company, banned the use of glyphosate along its 20,500 miles of tracks. 

As other railway companies look to Germany’s example, W.O.W. is an obvious solution. Its powerful combination of non-toxic, natural ingredients can help railway companies keep their tracks clear of weeds while not exposing the environment and the community to dangerous, more toxic weed controlling solutions.

Homeowners associations (HOAs) around the United States pride themselves on serving the residents that live in their neighborhoods. Often HOA efforts revolve around the safety and comfort of homeowners as well as helping to maintain or increase property values in the community. Beautiful community landscaping and aesthetics often play a large role in achieving those goals.

Glyphosate-based herbicides may put the goals of community safety and attractive landscaping at odds with each other. A better choice is to use W.O.W. This non-selective, effective herbicide takes care of weeds with no adverse effects to a neighborhood’s environment or residents.

W.O.W. by EcoMIGHT has a potential shelf life of up to ten years. However, it must be sealed, stored in a well-ventilated area, and kept above 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Once the herbicide has been mixed, the shelf life decreases to between two to three years. 

EcoMIGHT’s products are sold as a liquid concentrate, which you mix with water when ‘you’re ready to use it.  At six ounces per gallon, a single gallon of W.O.W. concentrate would make about 21 gallons of herbicide, which equates to an effective price as low as $2.21 per gallon.

Golf Courses

Golf superintendents care for acres worth of golf courses as well as their surrounding landscapes. 

In light of everything we’ve just said, W.O.W. can play a crucial role in golf course care.

This means superintendents can keep their greens looking attractive while ensuring their club members and families aren’t exposed to toxic herbicides.

Also, by using this naturally organic product, you can lead the way when it comes to adopting eco-friendly-practices — make this known to your local community, not only is this an ethical thing to do but it’s also a fabulous selling point! 

The bottom line is that W.O.W. works as well (or better) than the majority of products golf superintendents are accustomed to — and more often than not, exceeding ‘superintendents’ very high expectations. 

Tom Stone, superintendent of Indian Pond Country Club, explained his experience. “I tested W.O.W. against RoundUp on a sample piece of land at our club. W.O.W. has a much quicker burn down rate than glyphosate.  You see results almost immediately; within days. With Glyphosate, it takes five to seven days. I’ve found W.O.W. to be just as effective. It means pure death to the weeds; it kills to the roots.”

Tim Hood, Needham Golf Club superintendent said he “noticed a systemic impact on woody plants” and “was very impressed with the results that I achieved in the areas where I used the product.”

It’s no coincidence that many of the highest-rated golf courses and resorts in the country now use W.O.W. — and for a good reason!  

Landscapers

Landscapers make a living from beautifying residential and commercial properties, so it almost goes without saying that W.O.W. allows landscapers to accomplish this mission successfully. One long-standing challenge has been finding a product that is not only safe, but actually kills weeds effectively.

“Many of our old-school applicators were skeptical,” said Joey Harrison, director of business development and marketing at DeSantis Landscapes. “They just didn’t think it would work. However, we were all blown away with how well EcoMIGHT performed. In fact, when the temperatures were high, EcoMIGHT performed better than glyphosate.”

Steve Mendez, owner of a US Lawns Franchise in St Simons Island, Georgia, had a similar experience with EcoMIGHT’s performance, “It’s the best product I’ve found when it comes to a safe, sustainable product. I’m done with the others; this is the product I’m sticking with now.”

EcoMIGHT does its job without burning a hole in your wallet, polluting the environment with toxic chemicals, or putting their employees or communities in harm’s way. 

“With all the news coverage about glyphosate, people in Portland are particularly concerned,” Harrison said. “A lot of clients ask about it over the years. We’re excited to be able to have an alternative that is safer for our applicators, customers, and their visitors.”

We believe that selecting W.O.W. gives landscapers a competitive advantage. Period. After all, more and more property owners are seeking safe yet effective glyphosate-based product alternatives.

Schools

Children trust parents, teachers, and other adults in their lives to keep them safe and healthy. They have no choice on where they attend school and spend the majority of their growing-up years; those decisions are made by their caretakers. Schools have the responsibility of not only educating children but ensuring their physical environment is a safe one.

Some schools are stepping up to the challenge. After months of independent lab and field tests, W.O.W. is now certified by the FSPMA (Florida School Plant Management Association).

With all the health concerns arising around the use of glyphosate-based herbicides, it’s important for schools to consider safer alternatives for weed-controlling products used around schools and playgrounds. When used as directed, W.O.W. is safe for children, animals, aquatic life, wildlife, pollinators,  the water supply, and the soil.

Environmental Advocates Embrace EcoMIGHT

Perhaps one of the best indicators of whether a natural product is truly sustainable is the opinion of those experts who have devoted their lives to a healthier, sustainable world.

Maggie Knowles is co-founder of Portland Protectors and an avid beekeeper. She also completed the Harvard University Sustainability Leadership Program and has worked tirelessly to change environmental-related legislation in Oregon. She explains that “EcoMIGHT has taken ingredients found in nature and created a weedkiller that is as effective as the most highly toxic ones on the market. Everyone is blown away at how effective it is. I’m very grateful they exist.”

Like Knowles, Sean McCarthy has been part of the sustainable, chemical-free movement for 20 years. He co-runs holistic healing camps in Virginia and, besides fuel and oil for machinery, he allows no harmful chemicals on his healing farm.

Once you figure out the right ratio of [EcoMIGHT] product for the type of weeds you’re trying to kill, it works on everything,” McCarthy said. “I’ve used it on unwanted grass, weeds, thorn bushes, brush, and young poplar and pine trees.”

McCarthy’s organization, TEDS Foundation, now offers holistic healing camps, health and wellness retreats, seminars and virtual coaching for individuals and their families. Advocating for a product like EcoMIGHT is consistent with his own personal goals. “It’s a very personal thing for me,” McCarthy said. “There aren’t many times when you can profess a product like this.”

Top Weedkiller for Municipalities

As municipalities around the country are continuing to ban the use of herbicides containing glyphosate, city officials are scrambling to find a safe replacement. Other municipalities are working to get ahead of the curve by changing their weed-killing strategies voluntarily.

As America’s first hometown, Plymouth, MA, prepares to celebrate its 400th anniversary this year, it is fitting that they are one of the first municipalities to embrace EcoMIGHT. “We certainly want to minimize our overall impact on the environment,” said Robert Birkenhead Jr., highway foreman for the Town Plymouth. “Much of our water eventually drains into our oceans, and we want to be aware of that. In addition, we listened to many of our city workers who were concerned about their exposure to Roundup in their daily work. We wanted an alternative that was safe for our employees and friendly to the whole community.”

Today, the Town of Plymouth has made the switch and sprays about 300 gallons of the diluted form of W.O.W., a safe, non-toxic and natural herbicide, on sideways, easements and traffic islands.

Cities including Sebastian, Fla., and Vero Beach, Fla., that already have glyphosate bans in place have lifted those bans to allow further testing of EcoMIGHT. Both municipalities have reported positive results. Sebastian City Manager Paul Carlisle said in a recent test that W.O.W. far surpassed RoundUp in its control of weeds.

As municipalities around the country learn about EcoMIGHT, it’s no wonder they continue to make the switch.

Industry Professionals Embrace EcoMIGHT

Based on years of experience with a wide variety of weed-killing products, many industry experts are choosing to recommend EcoMIGHT today. The product offers the unique combination of an effective, safe herbicide at an affordable price–a combination that many have searched for and few have found. 

Customers want to know what products are available to replace glyphosate herbicides, whether they will work, and if they are cost-effective,” said David Shoaf, co-owner of Joe Blair Garden Supply. “We try to be conscientious about what we do and sell. We do have a moral obligation to protect the health and environment of our community. At the same time, we can’t expect people to buy a product that’s three or four times more expensive. W.O.W. gives our customers as much value as glyphosate-based herbicides. It works.”

Bradley Jacklin, a turf-grass expert who works with some of the top golf courses in the world, has struggled with this age-old problem as well. “Superintendents need to find that sweet spot between cost and efficacy while staying within regulations,” Jacklin said. “You can’t have a solution that’s dirt cheap and doesn’t work or one that is extremely expensive and does. The EcoMIGHT product is a timely replacement at an affordable price point.
