If anyone could help me identify these weeds in my bermuda? I've tried the Ortho crabgrass control with 2,4-D, quinclorac, and dicamba to no avail. Any input would be greatly appreciated!

Top looks like a type of prickly lettuce
no sure on the middle one
Bottom looks like a type of cudweed

Ortho crabgrass product probably didn't have enough active ingredient being it's designed more towards crabgrass. But your normal 3-way products should work. Might take two apps a few weeks apart. Ester based 2,4-D three-way are preferred durning cool months. I also like to spike my 3-ways with MSM for a broader spectrum.

Hey everyone -- lets play a game..

Lets play, "What is this and how do I kill it"

My front yard looks really good and I can stay on top of it with regular pass of hand weeding.. But the back yard (about 1500 sq feet is covered in this stuff..

As far as I know I can spray damn near anything on dormant bermuda without hurting it too much (but will obviously take the precautions to not put something on there that will ruin the yard competely)..

I would just like to fix the back yard a bit to match the front -- which I think is awesome looking..

Top looks like winter bittercress
Bottom looks like curly dock

Maybe

2,4-d kills most winter junk

@Jono59 I'm putting my money on Poa Annua, an undesirable Bluegrass that grows well in the winter months. Watch out for the seed heads, it sprouts very quickly.

Anyone know what this is? It has spread all over my back yard. I have MSM and Dismiss, will either one work to kill it without killing my Saint Augustine. I live in South Florida.

I think that's corn speedwell. Was nasty in my yard last year. Trying to prevent it this year with Dithiopyr and finish it off with Celsius.

Hello all. I live in coastal Georgia between Savannah, GA and Jacksonville, FL. I have these sporadically popping up in my centipede lawn. Any ideas? The blades are pretty thick and it has an herb type smell to it. We've had some pretty cool temps lately (some frost on the ground in the mornings) which doesn't seem to affect these guys. Any help is appreciated!

Greetings, guys. I have a Zoysia lawn. I missed my last Pre-E and I have these weeds. Are these Poa and chickweed?

I think you're correct about the first one, but the second one is hairy bittercress. Both are annual. Note that Prodiamine doesn't control the latter. I use Dithiopyr to control both.

Thanks! I’ll look into Dithiopyr. What post-E would you recommend now?

Celsius has great reviews, as it is a warm season selective. You have zoysia, so it should work well for you. Yes, it does seem a bit expensive, but actually cheaper in the long run as you only need to use small amounts at a time. I couldn't wait to try it out, so I did back in the fall when the temps were in the 60's and it worked well even then, although pretty slowly. But that's common for virtually all herbicides.

Looking for help identifying this grassy weed. It's infested my St Aug in large patches. The leaves are very soft but small compared to the St. Aug and it fills in very dense. I have some MSM and Dismiss. I tried the low rate of Dismiss on it a few weeks ago and it didn't show any signs of hurting. Just spent a few hours picking out a large patch in my St Aug and I would rather find a chemical to destroy it. Thanks

Ok so it’s February 2. My temps in Alabama are gonna get cold again but it’s gonna be in the 60, and maybe get to 70 on a day next week. Am I good to go ahead with prodiamine this weekend or is it still too early? I don’t wanna miss my opportunity.

Does anybody know what this is? It's coming up in only one small section of the yard.
