    I'm using speedzone.
    Man that stuff just wrecked dandies a few months ago.
    I bet it'll do the same on the CC.

    I agree with unit28. Speedzone or Chaser (ester) knocks out creeping Charlie. We find the "best kill" happens when it's hot (summertime), sometimes 100% kill with one spray.

    I stopped by a lawn yesterday (about 11,000 sq. ft.). This spring, it was chalk-full of CC (about 80% of the lawn was covered with it). We had sprayed it twice this year with Chaser. Except for 3 or 4 very small patches, it was all gone! The customer said his neighbors keep asking how he got rid of it.

    We buy our Chaser from UAP. Try it -- you'll see. p.s. No spreader/sticker is needed. I think Chaser is "slightly" less expensive than Speedzone.:usflag:

    I think I'm going to try that Q4 first, since it covers all the weeds I seem to have in my yard. Hopefully I'll be trying that soon and I'll report back how it does.
