    Do you have a license? If not, get to plucking.

    Confront if you can still find it. If not there are products with the same AI.

    Clover is fairly easy to kill. Triplett or Trimec work well. Confront is excellent but it is no longer labeled for residential lawns. A 3 inch mowing height and fertilizer will keep it out.i

    Speedzone is deadly for clover and it works very fast. It will also be rainfast in 3 hours. I don't advocate spraying if it is gonna rain but I did get caught by a freak rainstorm 2 years ago about 4 hours after I sprayed 2 acres. I had a sleepless night but when I went back to check a week later there was total kill. I am a believer. Good Luck.

    Not. Proper mowing and fertility may go a long way, but if that were all it took to control clover it would not be a problem. Trimec will give decent control but works better when used with a sticker. The best clover control I have ever had came from Drive 75, it is too expensive to use if it is only clover you are targeting, but for clover and crab its hard to beat.
