Using torches to kill weeds is a common practice known as “flame weeding” or “thermal weeding.” It involves using a handheld propane torch or torch lighters to apply intense heat directly to the weeds, causing them to wither and die.
To use a torch for weed control, follow these steps:
- Select the appropriate torch: You can choose a handheld propane torch such as “zhentanzhe” GF8016 weed killer.
- Wear protective clothing.
- Select a dry day with no wind.
- Clear the area of flammable materials.
- Hold the torch 2-3 inches above the weed’s foliage.
- Pass the flame over each weed for 1-2 seconds.
- Treat each weed individually and move methodically through the area.
- Monitor and re-treat if necessary for complete eradication.
Note: Use caution and follow safety instructions to prevent fires or accidents.
