Re: Who done it?

The wasps in my yard have been digging tunnels straight down with a volcano type mound around. (Maybe a different kind of wasp/hornet?) But the tunnel holes are only about nickel to quarter in size. I wouldn't have thought it was them making the mounds had I not caught one in the process. Freakishly...

Re: fewer noticeable pee spots - bermuda or st. augustine?

You could just Roundup along the fence every few weeks to keep them separated. I do this so I don't have to weedwack along the fence. Works well.

Someone most definitely sprayed something. That pattern is just too obviously man made.

Re: Who done it?

That looks like a cicada killer wasp tunnel, I've got a few in my yard as well. The droppings I think are unrelated. They are quite large in comparison to any critter that could make that tunnel.

So greenkeeper is showing 75% as of today. Do i reapply before it gets to 100% or wait?
I reapply closer to 225-255 gdd, as your last app is wearing off your new app will start kicking in and keep you under constant suppression.

Re: fewer noticeable pee spots - bermuda or st. augustine?

I don't recall ever having pee spots in my old St Aug yard. Mind you this was before I joined TLF and started learning about lawncare. I also never fertilized it either, just cut every Saturday at the highest setting. That yard was mostly shade and I remember the back yard always looked a little nic...

Re: Yukon in Tifgrand - need to kill!

I've read Yukon does not tolerate quinclorac very well. Could be a useful tool in your situation. I'm thinking the only other option would be to kill and plug or sod the affected areas. Edit: there's also this going on over here, member HungrySoutherner is using a tenacity+simazine combo to suppress...

What is this? I have it shooting up everywhere in the part of my backyard that is shaded starting around 1 pm and my Bermuda is struggling to grow in. https://i.postimg.cc/vm3bKqDJ/5-B7-CC461-978-E-488-F-B311-B7-C202-D178-D0.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/L8SqKW65/B12327-DD-9759-4-E33-9206-9-B540-E4-BE7-...

Re: Bermuda - Fungus Issue?

So, seems some fungus (dollar spot) you should feed N to grow it out. Others it says too much N will feed the fungus. So, how do you know what to do? I put down about 0.25lbN last weekend, was going to do it again this weekend, but now not so sure? If you can confirm dollar spot then yes hit it wit...
