    Ok guys, when do you stop spraying weeds? How cold does it have to get before you stop? I have done it into late fall, late october or early november before. I have gotten great results in the spring with very few weeds on those lawns. I did those jobs with with my usually 3 way type chem with quick silver added in. anyone else try that before? Any here have sucess with "cool power" in the fall?

    Next week here they're talking 25-30 overnight with some snow showers.

    I've already been doing a fall app, but dang, if it'll get up to 60 for the next 3-4 days after that, I'll look like a miracle worker on some of these yards of creeping charlie.

    I'm running Momentum FX in a PG Ultra at 1oz / 1000.

    Geez. We're still waiting for temps to stop getting into the 90's every day. Haven't used a 2,4D based product since March because of the heat.

    If it doesn't have snow on it, Spray It!

    Yea I hear ya. I think we will have all spraying done after monday. Hope. We have some lime to do still,about 3 pallets, and aerations. I haven't been selling aeration too hard though,getting a little bit sick of it all this time of year. I'm really hoping that we will be done in about 2 weeks...

    If your TG you will spray no matter what temp and snow cover or not.
    I get the biggest kick out of those guys putting down fert on snow covered lawns. and pre-m on snow covered lawns in the spring.

    i use cool power, works great. and you can spray until temps get to freezing (you wouldn't want your sprayer to freeze)
