Yea a lot of my yards had it bad. Speedzone will knock it out pretty quick. I don't remember seeing much of it last year.

It was weird some of my lawns didn't have it but a few were pretty bad. One lawn in fact had a perfect line around the property where the other lawns that I don't service had hairy bittercress everywhere. I used stonewall WDG for my fall pre last year and hairy bittercress isn't on the label but it seems like it prevented it in some of them.

What do you figure a half acre lot cost to apply Spectacle. $40 maybe? Cost of product, not charging customer.

it cost 11.00 an ounce. I prayed 4 oz per acre followed in 6 weeks by 3 ounce per acre. Expensive but 0 weeds. Only problem is I drive past these peoples houses that fired me in October and they are still clean as can be. The product is expensive but if they stay with you then you can make your $ back
