creeping Charlie (ground ivy) -- best kill?

When do you get the best kill on it? What herbicide do you prefer?

(we use Chaser ester, and on hot days, we actually get 100% kill once in awhile)

Seems homeowners cannot buy the stuff we use over the counter?

RSCVP please. Thanks.

Surge has worked the best. I get 95% control or better, even under poor conditions. I have not tried a lot of herbicides. The other two herbicides I have used are Confront and Three-ways.

ester bases are dangerous when it is hot outside. thats why the first ester was called cool power...lol... I have tried this new herbicide and I think it is the best on the market. I really do. Its Gordans ProForm Q-4. Kills sedges, broadleafs and grassy weeds all at the same time. Its a 4way so it is way better than any other 3way. try it and thank me later.

I use 3 way and spike it with confront using .25oz/M. For residential, I use Momentum FX as a spike.

Thanks. I may do that. Are you referring to using it as a spike?
