I deal with a lot of Centipede. It is very sensitive, doesn't take much to make it sick. Even though some products with 24D are labeled for centipede I would not use them as I have seen 24D have very negative results on centipede. You did not mention what weeds you are trying to control so it is hard to answer your question.

The reason you are not receiving responses are because it is a bad idea to give advice to customers who do not know how to correctly use products. Some are just trying to avoid the cost of hiring a professional. Bottom line is he is better off hiring someone who knows what they are doing.
