    Where are you going to be buying your products? If you go to Lesco they can help you with whatever you're trying to do.

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

    It should be stated on their invoice.

    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.

    If it's killing poa annua it is likely pre emerge and atrazine this time of the year.

    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...
