Re: St. Augustine must have chemicals and application timeline?

Ecks from Tex Can't tell you how helpful this abundance of information is. It just seems like once you think you have a grasp on something there is another layer that takes you down this rabbit hole that makes you realize you don't know as much as you thought. Very humbling to say the least. There'...

Re: How to mix Spinosad or bacillus thuringiensis for use on lawn for sod webworms

It's different with that device it looks like. The way I would do it is different than the way you would do it. If you can tell from my product on the amazon description on the first picture I have 2 measurements on the sides of my sprayer. One measurement is ounces to measure my concentrate. The ot...

Re: Is this sprayer good enough for stronger herbicides?

Small tank at 2 gallons especially for you saying you have a 5000SF lawn. From what I have read in my short time doing this the average recommendations for tank mixing concentrate is 1 gallon of water per 1000SF so take that into account when you get a sprayer. You could probably map out which chemi...

Re: Ok to apply multiple fungicides?

http://www2.ca.uky.edu/agcomm/pubs/ppa/ppa1/ppa1.pdf Large patch Zoysia starts on page 20. An interesting tidbit from the article states " Studies suggest that disease development is not influenced by nitrogen rate and source or by pre-emergence herbicides.

Roach Control

What's my best bet for indoor roach control? Was hoping bifenthrin was one of the go to choices since I already have that. Looking at the label makes it seem like it has a 30 day residual effect. Have seen Temprid FX (Imidacloprid and beta-Cyfluthrin), suspend SC (Deltamethrin) , and Demand SC (lamb...

Check this out. Page 29. If it is rust you can throw a couple different fungicides at it depending on what you have but propiconazole looks to be the best.

check this out and take a deep breath. Time for you to go down the lawn care rabbit hole. Do a bunch of research. It's a marathon not a sprint.

I wouldn't worry about < 1" over 24hours in terms of washing away granules. If it were a continuous downpour then maybe.

Re: To early to treat?

You put your sod down in September? What herbicide were you wanting to use? Read it's label and it should tell you. Most of them state "only apply product to established turf". Full root development for sod is like 1-2 months but it is at the end of the growing season. I would think if your label ca...

Re: Bermuda showing up

welcome to the bermuda / st aug hybrid lawn club there's a bunch of us. Keep the St Aug high, limit your fertilization, and keep the st augustine watered. Low cut, nitrogen loving and drought tolerance are all characteristics of bermuda. Even with the steps listed I still don't believe that is enoug...

Live Oak Beautiful yard. How did the MSM spray in the high August temps fare? I've always heard recommendations against spraying near trees with MSM. I have a bunch of celsius. Bought the 10 oz bottle and have given away 4 oz so I can sell you 2 oz if you want for $30. Live in Houston too but if we...

Re: Help with bad soil core from front-yard

Clay being so fine makes it easy for it to clump together and forms a barrier that makes water and roots have a hard time penetrating. Humic products are supposed to encourage these particles to separate allowing a more porous lawn. Here's an interesting post about testing of humates https://thelawn...

Re: Help with bad soil core from front-yard

It's Houston soil. Lots of clay. Good at keeping nutrients, bad at absorbing water. Still fully capable of growing lush lawn on top of it. I've been introducing humates to it 2-3 times a year to soften up the soil to promote deeper root growth and more permeable soil. Microlife 0-0-4 humates is a go...
