Wild Violet/Purple Violet Control?

What do you use and how well is it working?

Manor-(Metsulfuron) Safe on all but Tall Fescue!
Banvel-(Dicamba) Safe on Bermuda and Zoysia!

First off--What types of turfgrasses are you having outbreaks in??

Out of 900 or so customers we've only got around 30 that aren't Tall Fescue.

Drive--usually used for crabgrass--works swell on wild violet and clover. Also does beautifully on wild morning glory (bindweed). Can be used over-the-top on some shrubs. Check the label.

Confront works well. I always felt that a return application in about 10 days was the key to a good kill. I'm talking about spot spraying. I used this about 5-6 years ago. I believe you can only use Confront on commercial properties, not listed for residential use anymore.
