How To Kill Bindii

Bindii is a low growing weed with carrot-top like leaves, it produces a single flower at its centre, that when matures produces a prickly seed pod. The bindii prickles become easily stuck in our feet and Bindii quickly becomes a weed that everyone hates. Luckily, Bindii weeds can be easily treated and removed by common and easy methods.


Bindii Weed Cultural Management

The continuing life cycle of bindii weeds really can't be controlled by regular lawn mowing since its seed heads and flowers exist below mowing height, even a Cylinder Lawn Mower with low mowing heights can't really remove the seeds and flowers of bindii weeds effectively.

Hand pulling is an easy and effective treatment for bindii, as well as hoeing over the small seedlings.


Bindii Herbicides

Both Selective and Non Selective Herbicides can be used to easily control bindii. Herbicides are readily available at most nurseries, and are usually supplied in a concentrated form which should be diluted with water before application.
