Design alleviates exposure to harmful chemicals Cup reduces use of chemicals by up to 80
QUESTION: How do you pump up or pressurize the unit? ANSWER: It does not actually pressurize, so you don't have to pump it. A squeeze of the trigger delivers enough liquid at enough force to cover the area inside the spray shield.
Overall Rating: 3/5
Not a bad tool, but wished it was bigger.
It's definitely for spot spraying of individual weeds like a dandelion. Not for a spot broadcast of an area. Probably better to make your own contraption on a regular sprayer for that.
Weed Stick Chemical Applicator
This was a great idea and I do use it alot. I wish it had the options of the straight down jet spray AND a wider mist spray for larger spread out weeds. The straight down jet spray is limiting. Other than that, easy to fill, easy to use.
This item did not work right out of the box. I called customer service and they offered a refund right away and did not want the product back. I do not see why they keep selling it if they know that it does not work.
Doesn't work and no phone help.
Didn't work right out of the box. Nothing comes out. I love the concept and could not wait to use it. What a disappointment!
Order came, item did not work. At this price what can one expect. Knew it would void the warranty but took it apart anyway. The hose for the pump to the spray head was completely twisted and with the way it as assembled would never work. Tried to fix it but was unsuccessful. Definitely wouldn't buy or recommend this item although the concept seems good. Very small capacity for spray, shoddily assembled, didn't work!
doesn't work, no phone help
Assembled and it won't squirt. No one answers phone at DKProducts for help. Gardeners Edge responds: We are reaching out to this customer.
NO SPRAY WEED STICK
SHOULD BE ZERO STARS AS IT DOES NOTHING. AS OTHER REVIEWERS HAVE NOTED, THIS THING DOES NOT SPRAY ANYTHING. EASY TO PUT TOGETHER, FILL, SQUEEZE HANDLE (MANY TIMES). NOTHING COMES OUT.
Weed stick applicator
This is a great idea if it worked. Doesn't spray or even dribble. A big waste of money. I would like my money back. I would like to give it no stars but that wasn't an option.

A tool & a toy
Keeps spray off the flowers & can get up close to flowers. shoots a small stream but must be careful when moving throughout your yard that it doesn't drip on your plants like I found out in beginning. It's easy to use around all my plants & I do have many. I would recommend this product to others.
A great idea, but....
I bought this tool because I wanted to minimize my applications of herbicides, and it does do that. For example, it enabled me to apply broadleaf weed killers just to the broadleaf weeds in the lawn without spraying them onto adjacent, weed-free areas. However, the construction of the weedstick is flimsy; the first time I used it, it broke. I've duct taped it together so that I can continue to use it, but that's a poor expedient. If the construction was better, this would be a great tool.

Quick way to control weeds
this is great around the yard, you can target weeds wherever they are.
I realy like this tool, it is very easy to use,and not too heavy to carry around.
Weedstick is great
We needed a sprayer for limited use of Round Up on weeds in tightly planted beds. Works very well, easy to fill, clean and lightweight to use. Have only had it for a few months so I cannot speak to its lifespan, but seems well made.
The Weedstick is great for heavily planted flower beds. You can move your flowers aside a little with the cup on the Weedstick to apply the herbicide you are using right on the weed. For years I have been putting a hole in a Styrofoam cup and slipping it over the tip of my "pump-up" sprayer with mediocre results. This product is exactly what I need and I love it.
spray right where you want it
great little product
Works well to kill weeds around plants. Fewer chemicals used.
Love this handy sprayer!
We have very tight spaces with herbicide sensitive plants in our nethouses, weeds still grow so we need to treat them. This allows us to do so with minimal interference to our crops.
The weeds that I sprayed it killed some and did not kill others.
What a RIP OFF!
Novel concept and would be a great idea if it were pressurized and actually worked. Assembly instructions were simple enough; just put it together and go. But it doesn't actually work! No pesticide is strayed, or even dribbled out of the wand. I tried opening the nozzle, even taking the nozzle off, NOTHING! Then I tried calling the manufacturer at the number listed in the instruction manual. A guy answered, didn't know what I was talking about, then forwarded me to an answering machine. I left my name and number and still have not heard back. I'm very disappointed and really want my money back. This piece of crap isn't worth putting more money into it to ship it back.
