I have several yards (burmuda) that are overrun with cb. Should I move forward in treating the cb now or wait to control it with Pre-M?

Q4 or XLR8 have been doing the job for me this year. I'm just a bit nervous about having the customers yard al. Brown and yellow for the next 10-14days.

It's on it's way out with the cooler temps, if it's an existing customer I would spray...if a new customer I would wait.

I agree with CGA, about time to move forward with a Pre-M soon anyway.

You could double charge a new client for two treatments. CG now and Pre-Em in a few weeks.

If the customer is ok with it for a few more weeks, wait for it to die on its own. This way, you can seed in the fall. If you kill it now, the herbicide may not degrade as fast as you like and hurt the new lawn.

Won't be seeding Bermuda in the fall...no worries there.

Posted via Mobile DeviceSorry, I missed the Bermuda in the OP. Has your Bermuda started to slow yet in NC?

It will to an extent, but if cg is really bad it will take over.

Most people do not manage bermuda well enough for it to out compete CG
