Timturf, in Texas, the test is just as dfor says - safety, understanding the label, etc. but no detail on what chemicals to use where. We're on our own on that.

Josey Wales, is Drive 75 available at places like Lesco? Is it safe in Bermuda and St. Augustine?

Drive is available from Lesco, Estes, etc....

It's safe for bermuda but the label says that St Augustine is susceptable to injury.


Here's a link to the page that has the PDF label...

Yes, Drive is available at Lesco's in Texas.
For a mixed stand of turf, Drive or Momentum work well-remember to alternate for best efficacy.
Landcruiser-if you put 2,4-D, atrazine or MSMA on your mixed stand of turf you will, in all probability, kill all of it.
2,4-D is highly phytotoxic to St Augustine, MSMA will flat kill it and atrazine will kill Bermudagrass.
You can use Drive, however, Momentum works as well.
Do not forget the non-ionic spray adjuvant either.

Re: Got my Private Applicator License - now what chemical to use on weeds?

I live in the Dallas, Tx area and just passed my Private Applicators license so I can buy whatever I want to kill weeds in my lawn. I have a lawn of 80% Bermuda, 20% St. Augustine. I have severe dandelion infestation in some areas, lots of either goosegrass or crabgrass (I'm not sure which) and some henbit and clover. I fertilize, mow and water regular and really want a pretty yard. I work hard at it but have never gotten weeds under control using "dept. store" weed killers. Problem is, I know nothing about the better stuff I can now buy. What should I use? Where are places I can buy it? We have Lesco's if they are a good place to buy chemicals. I have neighbors that used Trugreen Chemlawn and places similar that come out and spray liquid weed control and their yards look perfect. What in the heck are these places using? It looks like it would work for me as well. Help me out or tell me someone who can please.
Its the way its applied and the addition of surfactants and adjuvants that make the Tru Green lawns look good. Even Weed B Gon at the Home Depot will do a good job if applied correctly with the right equipment.

Atrazine will not kill bermuda. It is labeled for bermuda and an excellent, economical pre-emerge product when used properly. Simazine is very similar. Best to keep the 2,4-D off of St. Aug especially during green-up---especially Raleigh, but I have never seen significant damage--must labels say to use extreme caution. MSMA will fry it however. If your in Tx your St. Aug is probably just in shade areas anyway.
Tx Private license has a different test and less CEU requirements,etc for those who wish to apply to own property only. Tx Commercial license is more in line with other states and required for those who charge.
