I need a weed killer that works when it’s cold out. Winter isn’t over but I see way too many weeds in my fescue and bermuda grass. I think I can safely use some roundup for the bermuda because it’s still dormant. But my fescue is growing fine as are the weeds. I got some stuff from you last summer but when I was reading the label, it said I need it to be warmer then it is for it to work right. Are there any alternatives?

Killing weeds when it’s cold used to be near impossible but we recently found a product called WEED FREE ZONE. It uses an active which is effective on both grassy and broadleaf weeds and you can use it safely on Fescue. The coverage is excellent too. So whether you want to spot spray or broadcast it over the entire lot, Weed Free is the way to go till late spring or summer.

Once I have applied Weedar 64 to a grazing pasture, how long should I wait to reseed? One month? Two?

WEEDAR 64 is a broadleaf herbicide which means it targets broadleaf weeds. So the big question here is what kind of seeds are you looking to plant? If you review the Weedar Label, you’ll see there are some guidelines for certain plants but I’m not aware of any restrictions or waiting time listed if the seed is some kind of grass. Read through the label to make sure I’m not missing anything; here are the links:

I have crab grass in my pasture of bermuda grass. I need to kill it now and prevent it from coming back. Can u help me with a product to use?

We can. In our WEED CONTROL ARTICLE, we have two products that will do the job. First, treat with the WEEDOUT which will kill exposed crab grass. Next, apply SURFLAN to stop anymore from growing.

Here are direct links to the information and products listed above:

Do you have anything that can control Poa Annua in St. Augustine grass?
What about getting rid of Bermuda grass in St. Augustine?

ATRAZINE will handle the Poa Annua. You can read details on it’s label. However, Bermuda and St. Augustine are closely related and any product currently on the market that will kill Bermuda will most likely kill the St. Augustine as well. The most common Bermuda killer we sell is the TURFLON. It’s fine for fescue and bluegrass blends but will injure the St. Augustine if you broadcast it over the entire yard.

So your choices are to hand remove the Bermuda or try to isolate your treatments to just those patches. I have seen where people will use a weak mixture of Turflon and apply it to the center patches of Bermuda and carefully avoid getting any on the St. Augustine. This is not the most effective approach but it will save some time. And over the course of a few treatments, you can kill off 90+% of the Bermuda without hurting the St. Augustine so it’s somewhat effective.

can i apply liquid surflan to beds that have lillies or daffidills already 12 to 15 inches high?

Absolutely. As explained in our WEED CONTROL ARTICLE, one of the great features of SURFLAN is that it won’t hurt anything already growing. Use it at least twice a year to keep any weeds from growing locally in both your grass and flower beds.
