    Just a little update on the Celsius. Talked to the JDL/Lesco salesperson today and he said they were waiting for the state. Looks like here in Texas we will get it in May. He said they already have the pricing info and it is going to be 75.00 bucks and that Bayer set the price so it should be the same price wherever you get it.

    You are getting it in May. I hope Hawaii is not too far behind. Drive and Dismiss are totally illegal here.

    If you are close enough, I will be happy to treat your yards selectively for Bermuda. BTW as a side Benefit I can also control Torpedo Grass selectively in your St Augustine. In Fact I am open to anyone on the S.W. Gulf Coast of Florida that would like to have some Custom work done. I have posted a significant amount of Technical information on LS in the past. But this is one of those times I will keep certain Proprietary Intellectual Property to my self.

    BTW for those who think they might know what I am using. Two big hints as to why it isn't what you think. First was when Gregory Posted that the Bermuda didn't return and the real Biggie is my formula controls Torpedo Grass also.

    Take a picture of the Torpedo grass and St Augustine mix and post it. I will give you some more Ric-icide and you can treat the Torpedo Grass and post a picture of the dead torpedo grass in the St Augustine. I will add, as dry as it is right now it might not be the best time to stress your St Augustine with any type of herbicide. However It is pouring rain on my house as I type. Hopefully we have started our rainy season west of I 75. We have been having a little rain East of I 75 but not much.
