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:

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.

I have a gal of your weedar 64 that I used to use in my strawberry patch which I have since removed, can I use this weedar 64 on my lawn to kill weeds, and if so how much per gal would I use
Thanks for your time.

B.G.

Weedar works on a wide range of broadleaf weeds and can be sprayed over grass. Use it at the rate of .75 oz per gallon of water per 1000/sq ft of turf. More information on this product can be seen here:

I have some Eraser AQ that we used to kill invasive weeds in our pond. Recently we had a hot-mix asphalt drive way installed on our existing clay gravel road bed.  Now our grasses (Bermuda, Cetepede, and Bahia Grass) are all comming up through the asphalt.  Wanted to know if Eraser AQ could be used to control these grasses coming through then asphalt??

As explained in our LAWN WEED CONTROL ARTICLE, the Eraser is an active that will kill any plant. The AQ is no different. However, you’ll need to use it over and over during the course of any one season and this will not only take a lot of time but in the end a big cost. Eraser is a bit pricey since it’s formulated for the more “refined” aquatic environment.

Instead I suggest you use PRAMITOL EC. One application in the spring should be all you need. It’s soil sterilizing active means you should get a good 3-6 months control which in the long run will prove to save both time and money. I have several cracks in my pavement which allow weeds to grow but one treatment with the Pramitol and I’m done worrying about them for the year. I like to treat early April before the weeds start showing. Pramitol will kill everything but it’s not the fastest acting. If you do apply some and want the fastest results on the weeds currently standing, be sure to add some of the Eraser this first time you use it. Pramitol and Eraser mixed in the same tank is fine and combined will kill both what’s growing quickly and prevent anything new for many months to come. My guess is a good job done now should last most if not the whole year.

I have an irises bed…………established in it’s 2nd year.

It is overtaken with weeds…………and I am having a hard time…controling them.

What do you recomend without killing my irises??

Take some time to review the information we have in our WEED CONTROL ARTICLE. There is a section just one WEEDS IN FLOWER BEDS which offers up some options. You don’t mention which type of weeds you have so I’m thinking either GRASS KILLER or the BASAGRAN will be needed; maybe both.

Direct links to this information and products are here including labels on both products:

Is there any grass and weed killer that is safe for plants and pets?  The plants are Hibiscus and Clematis and the pets are cats.

Thank You for any help you can give me.

First, the herbicides we have listed in our WEED CONTROL ARTICLE won’t pose a hazard to people or pets when used properly. We have some SAFETY VIDEOS that cover everything you need to know regarding the safe use, mixing and storage of these products. One of the most important things you can do is keep the pet away when treating the yard and then keep them away till the area dries. This is usually no longer than 2 hours. Once dry there is no danger to people or pets and everyone can walk over these surfaces like they did before.

Second, there are only a few products which can be safely used over beneficial plants. One that should do the job is GRASS KILLER. On it’s label Grass Killer cites it’s Okay for use on hibiscus but I wasn’t able to find anything on the Clematis. Just to be safe, I suggest spraying around those plants and if you limit your application to just the weeds, I’m fairly confident you won’t bother them if they are a broadleaf. To be sure just test a small section by spraying it and letting it sit for 3-5 days to see if anything happens.

In summary, there are products that can be safely used around your sensitive plants. The key is knowing the label and in some cases “testing” to be sure. I also advise mixing accurately to be sure you don’t “overdose” it.
