I need help...

Alright guys I need help. Last year my backyard was taken over by poa annua. It was really bad more than 3/4 of my yard was covered with it. At the time I didn't know what it was so I was like it will die out...Well its back again and I need to get rid of it in a bad way. I don't have an applicator's license so I need to know what will work that I can buy in a general home depot and that sort. I've read that Remuda works but I want to know for sure before I go out and by it and if there is anything out there better.

Thanks for your help!

Again and again, please state you turf: centipede, St. Augustine, Bermuda. It become really discouraging to help when there is so much difference between warm and cool season grass. The only way to even venture a guess is your location. Poa sets millions of seeds so your first defense is your Pre-Em followed by Simazine or Atrazine. Temps have to be below 85 degrees for those. After that your specialty herbicides such as Image (Do not apply on dormant grass) . If your lawn is small, call in a local pro who has the right equipment .

My yard is decent sized. My grass is centipiede. Calling a company is not an option for me. I'm not paying and arm and a leg for them to come and spray. I would much rather do it myself.

With centipede, you'll have to avoid anything with 24D in it, Certainty should work like dishman89 said. You should be able to buy whatever you need at a chemical supplier, you just can't apply it for compensation without a license.

The next time someone complains about your pricing, ask them how much their barber would charge to come over and cut their hair.
