    Let it grow taller than the surrounding bermuda, use a foam applicator soaked in roundup on the blades of the broomsedge.

    Last year I improvised a herbicide applicator for poison ivy growing in myrtle. I used barbeque tongs. I covered the tong with absorbent cloth attached with rubber bands zip ties or whatever. Then used a squirt bottle to squirt herbicide solution on the absorbent part. I grabbed hold of the weed and pulled the absorbent pads up over the whole stem, coating the whole plant. Wear rubber gloves.

    A guy has 2.5 gal in the equipment selling section of lawnsite and he will ship and he doesn't realize what the value of it is.

    I do realize the value but I just don't have a use for it most of my yards are fescue and you can't hole on to it for ever. but when you use the last drop it's gone forever
