NatureZap Kills Weeds Using an Infrared Light
Date Published: 03/30/2017 2:30 PM
At my old house, our "lawn" was about 95% weeds, 3% dirt, and 2 % grass. At that point is was probably worth it to just have a controlled burn throughout the entire lot and start fresh. But if your lawn consists of 20% or less weeds, you may want to just remove the weeds. Instead of having to kneel down on all fours and trudge through your entire lawn pulling up each weed, you can use the NatureZap, which uses an infrared light to kill the weeds while you stand.
Versions: Battery | Corded
Looking like a giant extra-long flashlight, the NatureZap allows you to simply point it at any weed in your lawn to instantly kill it. The IR light creates heat that cuts off the water supply to the root, meanwhile the UV light penetrates the ground to disrupt the root functions.
The NatureZap weed killing IR wand is a perfect replacement for spraying harsh and smelly chemicals that not only may hurt your lawn, but could also hurt your pets. The device will kill weeds in your lawn, in-between pavers, in gardens, on sidewalks, or really anywhere.
For small weeds, it'll take just 5 seconds to kill, whereas larger weeds may take up to 15 seconds to fully kill. After use, it will vary in time to see the weed actually start to fade away. In the hot summer months, you may see the weeds to start brown after just a few hours, whereas in the spring or fall months, it may take up to 1-2 weeks to see the weeds fully die.
There's two different versions of the NatureZap, one that is battery operated, and a corded version that you plug into an extension cord. The battery operated NatureZap does require a larger battery pack that weighs around 17 lbs that comes with a 10 food cord. It's recommended to set the battery pack down while you cover a certain area of your lawn. Using the battery pack, you'll get around 30 minutes of use out of the NatureZap.
