As a substitute to using herbicides, the Red Dragon Backpack Flame Weeder is designed primarily for stale (pre-emerge) plant bed, between-row, and spot weed control.

Its flame-control squeeze valve allows adjustment from a small, low-heat flame up to a 2,050-degree torch and maintains just a pilot flame with the trigger is released.
