    Hey guys, I have been holding off our fall liquid herbicide until temps get cooler (was 86 today in michigan), we did have a frost a couple weeks back, but now it is hot again. Do you think I should wait out the temps to get best control - kill the roots, not the head?? Or are the somewhat cooler nights (60) and shorter days have the plants thinking dormancy?

    We have been spraying our fall weed control for 5 weeks now. Satisfied with results in previous years. Using Lesco Eliminate-- plus laundry detergent for sticker--smells nice, too. No need to wait--except we may be a litle early for certain winter annuals like chickweed and verocica, and bitter cress.
