    weeds.com will show you weeds and trial and error with product BUT...
    If your not liscenced then you should not be applying any weed killers thats what we call an illegal operatoe and it is highly frowned upon here...

    Weeds of the Northeast is an excellent book on weeds that covers all the major weeds we have in our area of the country too. Also check with your extension office, I got a book from the Nebraska Department of Agriculture that has been an invaluable tool for identifying weeds and it was only like 25 bucks and has over 400 pages of pictures and plant information.
