Metsulfuron/3-way and a shot of surfactant. Mow them off 7-10 days later. 95%+ control. Oh yea, use tracker dye if there are many of them or there are a bunch of "wispy" ones that are hard to see. Good Luck

Glyphosate will not kill onions in my experience. Wicking is fine when you have 1 or 2 "problem" lawns but if you have more than that, wicking is not practical. Get a backpack sprayer with a fan tip and mix what I posted according to the label and spray...

I had excellent results earlier this year wicking wild onions and garlic on a property that was infested with it. Owner said he had been having problems for years and finally gave up on pulling.

I think I got around 90% kill and did a follow up a month later to get the stragglers.

It was just RU, mixed a tiny bit heavy.

Even if it is time consuming, it only took me 30 minutes or so to do about 300 visible plants. I just used a sponge and rubber gloves and it went fairly quickly. That and this guy is very "green" and doesn't apply anything on his lawns.

Ya, I agree, if you've got a high volume to control then wicking wouldn't be practical.

Use the maximum rate and quality of surfactant. Silicone type. "Drench" or Lesco "Hawkeye" come to mind. Expensive, but not compared to the labor of repeated treatments. And do not use the cheapest herbicide at the minimum rate. Use "Lesco Eliminate" at the maximum rate. Costs more--works better.
And be sure to get the timing right. You want to get it when it is young and tender in your area. Not sure if that is late fall or early spring in your area.

I use a wetting agent and a 3way I get 100% control. You have to use some thing to remove the wax .They are easy to kill.

3-way ester works fine.
May take second app. the following spring due to the bulbs in the soil.

Don't know my percentage of kill yet, but they have been shriveling up. I am spraying Trimec Southern at .75/1000 and Octane .02oz/1000.
