Right. It's basically ones of these with a fancy shell.

u/DirteDeeds · 70 pointsr/pics

Here's the same thing that gun is minus the plastic case.

u/TupperwareMagic · 25 pointsr/tifu

Amazon actually sells a fairly reliable treatment for bedbugs in furniture. You have to set the furniture outside during treatment, though.

u/jt32470 · 9 pointsr/gardening

this works really well as a replacement for round-up.

u/453265436354654 · 3 pointsr/australia

That is expensive. I've seen products on amazon for like 1/5 of that. I know it's US, but you should be able to find something much cheaper. About the price of a propane tank.

u/eastermonster · 3 pointsr/landscaping

Maybe you could torch the weeds with something like this:

Get this instead, thank me later

You got the weed torches like this for under $100 that use propane as a fuel, or the stupidly overpriced Boring company version which you shouldn't buy.

Then there is true flamethrowers like this for well over $1000 that actually use napalm for fuel.

u/D0esANyoneREadTHese · 3 pointsr/mildlyinteresting
u/Thor4269 · 3 pointsr/funny

They are plenty reliable and much cheaper... You can buy one that connects to a propane tank for 50 bucks


u/legosmyeggo · 3 pointsr/Minneapolis
u/cracell · 2 pointsr/funny

Yep! I want one but have yet to find an excuse to actually get one.

But the reviews on that one claim it's great for removing weeds and their seeds.

u/lukistke · 2 pointsr/NoStupidQuestions

Oh by far then the best would to just bring a propane torch. You just set the torch under the log inside the pit. If you can cut the log like the other picture, it would lite quicker. *and then once the log is lit well enough, you can remove the torch.

u/Felesar · 2 pointsr/grandrapids

Propane blowtorch. Yes, really.

I use it year round. Burns weeds, melts ice, and really gets charcoal going quick on the grill. Connects to typical grill size tank. Fastest way to get rid of ice with zero physical effort. Light, point, melt. Win.

u/Banzai51 · 2 pointsr/Michigan

You can always use something like this.

My brother bought me something like that as a BBQ fire starter. Might have to try that as an ice melter.

empty soda can with a little bit of gasoline/lighter fluid in it. I spent a lot of time as a kid picking these little bastards off of potato leaves.

If hand control is logistically impossible, you could try some insecticides. Sevin (carbaryl) is fairly benign, and works best when ingested by the insect, so i think it'd be a good fit here. I dont like spraying fruits or veggies that im eating, but in this case you're not applying it to the edible part of the plant, so i'm more comfortable with it.

Could also try to flame them off. Insect control can be achieved with fire, but it may not work in this case. You might just end up torching your potato vines. I'd try with something like this. They're not free, but if you've been looking for an excuse to buy a flamethrower, this might be it.

$62 on Amazon and free 2 day shipping on prime. I love the future.

Weed dragon.

It's the best option for weeds in gravel.

Late reply. Hello.
I really appreciated your feedback about coal and your diagram which was exactly what i experienced.
After standing outside int he cold for 3 hours working with Coal while getting covered in smoke.. I just bought one of these today per your diagram.

I'm curious if you put the weed burner and the air into the same hole, or into two different sized holes.

Heres what I'm planning to do this Thursday/Friday.

i dont see any initial reason this shouldn't work but wanted to see what you thought.

I also saw something online im looking for again that suggested putting the propane in a warm water bath for safety since it'll get so cold being left on for extended periods of time.
Im lookign now for this information and am wondering if this has ever been an issue for you?

u/russellh · 1 pointr/pics

Or a flame weeder if you need more

u/baristabrian808 · 1 pointr/gardening

I used a 5-gal LP tank. It connects with a long hose. I suppose you could use a small disposable cylinder.

Here’s a good description at Amazon:


There are other brand names and sources. Lowe’s. Home Depot. Ace.

u/this_name_taken · 1 pointr/landscaping

I use a red dragon torch professionally and it works great. Shouldn't harm the landscape fabric as a light pass is sufficient for anything that isn't deeply rooted.

u/brcasey3 · 1 pointr/landscaping

Burn them with this. Then put polymeric sand down.

u/reedzkee · 1 pointr/BBQ

I do things quite differently. 400 seems really low to me for a sear. My "cool" side is usually considerably hotter than that if I actually put the lid on, which i usually don't.

I personally use a weed burner to start the coals, but used to use a chimney starter which works just fine, just takes longer.

I typically use combination of lump and briquettes. I buy the briquettes on sale, and use them to curb the intensity of the lump and to save money. They ash 10x more than lump which keep the flames down and is an excellent insulator. If I'm doing something like pork tenderloin I'll throw some wood on top to get a little smoke while the meat is on the cool side.

I let all the coals turn into a full blown fire and settle before putting the meat on. It takes 30 minutes. No temperature gauge, but it's well over 1000 degrees and will crack the paint on the grill. I'm ok with replacing the kettle every few years. Once the flames settle, the window for perfect grilling is actually pretty small so keep an eye on it. Searing requires some long tongs and constant attention as both sides of a steak will be done in less than 3 minutes total. Say goodbye to any hair on your knuckles. As long as you burn the coals down flare ups are manageable unless you have a fatty ribeye covered in oil. After that, its only off to the side but a couple minutes unless we are talking 2"+ bone-in steaks.

u/kab0b87 · 1 pointr/DIY

if this tank is as big as i think it would be for running a house, a burner (even a bbq) could take days of constant running to burn through.

you might need something really large to burn off that much, best bet is to find something with a really high btu. something like this can empty a 20lb tank rather quickly but you might even need to run that thing for quite a long time.

u/atetuna · 1 pointr/DIY

If that's brick or concrete all along the wall, I'd attack it with my weed torch. I'd trim those weeds near the fence first, then use the torch with a water hose nearby...maybe even wet down the weeds near the fence so they're less likely to catch.

u/uliarliarpantsonfire · 1 pointr/gardening

I have been wanting to get one of those Weed Dragons. I don't know how well they work, but it looks like a good idea. We can't use herbicides/pesticides much either because we have goats, geese, and chickens. So this looked like a good option to me.

Edit: If anyone has experience with it let me know how it went.

u/patl1 · 1 pointr/lawncare

Roundup will work, but it'll also kill everything it touches. I don't know of any sandspur-selective herbicides.

One of these might help, but it's a little pricey. At least you wouldn't have to pull them out by hand though.

u/HerpDerpImARedditor · 1 pointr/programming

Oh, holy hell that looks a lot better than mine!

Pfft £120 here thanks for the heads up though!
