    Learn the "Life Cycle" of the weed in question in your area.

    Here in NJ they seed in late spring and germinate in early fall. We spray them in Mid Fall with a Post- Emengent Herbicide when they are small.

    Next spring No dandies ;)

    Oh...there's no question at all in my mind that early fall's the best time for broadleaf weed control....provided that it might someday actually RAIN again in September / October in Ohio...so that this could be satisfactorily performed !!!

    From the CUSTOMER's perspective, though...
    If they don't see 'em blooming anymore...they (for the most part) "stop caring" about them :hammerhead:....and really don't start complaining at all about anything until crabgrass season really takes hold.

    But, you're right !

    If the conditions are just right in the early-mid fall for broadleaf weed control...one can really make some headway with the bi-annual and perennial weeds.
