    Looking for some advice on pumping some white clover. I can wrinkle it with 2-4D but just can't tip it over in a weak lawn. Thick lawns I can set it back enough for the good grass to take over. I heard some talk about MCPP, 2-4D and dicamba all in one. Although dicamba seems a little potent around trees and exposed "OH ****" roots right after dinner: Any advice is appreciated. Love the site. cool2:

    Trimec every two weeks until it is retreating.

    Just curious: when there's a fly in your soup - do you just eat it? I mean it's natural for it to wind up there. AND it adds protein.

    I use a 3-way spiked with a little extra MCCP. Gone 2 weeks. BTW, Thanks Whoop...Treegal1 doesn't have a clue.

    I'd love to leave it in there but the guy who writes the monthly check wants it out!!! Whats your 3-way blend? If I may ask?

    Lesco 3-way or Vessel. Most of our customers pay us to control weeds not propagate them.
