Will Momentum kill maple seedlings? I have a new customer with thousands of them all of the yard. There is one aproximately every 4-5 inches. Each only has 1-2 leaves.

If not, any other ideas?

Just keep chopping them off and they will die in no time. No leaves, no life.

Anything better than deadheading the maples sprouts in the flower/mulch beds?

In the lawn all you have to do is mow them and they will die. No chems needed.

I would also like to find something to kill them in the bed areas. Pulling them is a PITA!!!!, but this year I was able to get most of them out of the beds before they started to grow. Still want something to kill them off though.

Thanks for the info. I try Momentum this weekend and let you know how it works. I have mowed this lawn 4 times this year and they are sill there. I mow at 3.5" with high lift blades. I'm not going to scalp the lawn to cut up all the little trees.
