     Problem Queries

I cannot identify the pest or disease using the Problem Solver, how do I find out what it is? We have tried to include the most common plant pests and diseases in the Problem Solver, but if your pest or disease is something not on it please contact us with a detailed description and a photo if possible and we may be able to identify it and give advice on control.
How can get rid of paspalum/Kikuyu/couch/twitch or other pest grass in my lawn? Because these are grasses there is not an effective selective weed killer that will control one type of grass without some harm to the lawn grasses. Control is best carried out by manual removal or spot treatment with products such as Weed Weapon Rapid Action or Weed Weapon Invade Gel.

These are questions that are commonly asked of Kiwicare Customer Service, store staff, sales team and others regarding gardening and Kiwicare products. We hope you will find the answers you are looking for here. If you don't, please contact us.
