Likely Tank mix of Pre-M ec and a Three way broadleaf herb tank mix with some fert.. As suggested ask your Local JDL.

The yellow color is likely from the pendimethalin or Pre-em, which is a pre-emergent, which means that it stops seeds from germinating. I don't care for it much myself, stains everything, stinks and doesn't last long enough.

Bermuda lawns where you are I assume?

If it's killing poa, and your bermuda is dormant, they *may* be applying a mix of pre-em or barricade (both yellow) with Round-up. Round-up won't harm your dormant bermuda but it does a beautiful job of taking out the winter weeds like poa annua.


Also I agree, your invoice SHOULD have exactly what the tech is applying and the rate on it. That's the law...
