    The King Ranch Bluestem is driving me crazy and I can't keep up with the glyphosate treatments on new customer's lawns. Has anyone found something that works as a broadcast or zone spray that will severely suppress this stuff? I guess I am looking for any anecdotal potions that I can try. As far as I know, there is nothing really labelled for KR Bluestem or am I mistaken? I appreciate all suggestions and comments. Biz is good! Mother Nature keeps bringing it on!!

    It seems similar to Dallisgrass, you may have to hit it with a non selective herbicide, we will be going in to the dormant season so it would be a good time. That's what I did with the Dallisgrass problems..

    Hey, thanks for the reply. Maybe misery just loves company. All I have been doing is hitting with glyphosate since we are in a good time for a thorough kill of root system. This stuff is just crazy even on a few EXISTING lawns it has invaded especially in stressed bermuda. I have tried MSMA on it in the past but it seems to be 50/50 success the following spring on existing clumps.

    Hey WeedMan! Good to see someone else from Weatherford on here. I live in Granbury now but was raised in Weatherford. Still do business in Weatherford, Granbury and Aledo. Welcome! I think I have actually seen you out and about a few times. Do you have a lawn or two out right next to the Parker County Airport in that subdivision? I think you treat one right across the street from one of my clients out there.

    Hey Woody! Thanks for the welcome. Yes, I have about a dozen or so customers in that Parker Oaks neighborhood and I actually live there. I checked out your website - looks great. I am always looking for someone I can refer customers to if they are in need of your type service. Give me a shout if you see me out and I'll be looking for you as well.

    Msm turf works great on Bahia grass, and doesn't set the Bermuda back. It isnt labeled to kill kr bluestem, but it might since its a similar to bahia. I have some mow-n-goes with kr bluestem in them, but haven't tried it on them.
    Here's the label for msm.

    I'm looking for someone to service my grandmothers place in colleyville. After trying to contact over 1/2 dozen companies in the area I have been unable to get someone there. As a lco myself, I'm blown away by the horrible service I have received at every company I reached out to down there.

    Can anyone help me out here?
