Hi Doug. No, this formula isn't listed for control of chamberbitter. Try the crabgrass version instead: Spectracide Weed Stop for Lawns plus Crabgrass Killer Concentrate (http://www.spectracide.com/Products-and-Solutions/Lawn-Weed-Killers/Spectracide-Weed-Stop-for-Lawns-Concentrate-plus-Crabgrass-Killer.aspx).

It's not necessary to cut the brown parts off. If the drift was light, your shrubs will likely recover, but if they were covered, it's difficult to say. Watering affected shrubs might help.

Question

I have Spectracide Weed and Grass Killer. In my planter I have Lioropi ornamental grasses but also Bermuda grass within the Lioropi.

Will this weed and grass killer affect or kill the lioropi?
Don't want the bermuda. If the Spectracide will kill the lioropi what do you have that that won't kill it but will kill the bermuda?

Spectracide Weed & Grass Killer (which is not the product pictured) is a non-selective herbicide, which means it will kill anything you spray. We do make several selective weed killers (including the one pictured, Spectracide Weed Stop for Lawns Concentrate), but they're designed to be sprayed on lawns only to kill listed weeds and not harm grass plants. To control grass growing in your ornamental planter, we recommend spot treating very carefully with Spectracide Weed & Grass Killer, avoiding spray or drift to your liriope.

charlie, you used exactly half the minimum amount.
I use 1 ounce per gallon (2 tbs) and have results in 24 hours. The broad leaf weeds begin to curl overnight. I have several acres of lawn and mix 32 oz with 30 gallons of water in a pressure applicator. I love this product, it's economical and works.

If you have bluegrass, fescue, rye or zoysia grass, the rate might have been a little low. Your temperatures might be a little high for optimal results, but you will begin to see visible weed yellowing today or tomorrow. Please let us know if you do not.

Question

How long do I need to wait to reseed the lawn - in the fall.

I am in Raleigh NC, and we need to overseed every year. I waited a bit too long to hit the weeds this year. If I do it now, I know I need to wait until I reseed - the question is how long do I need to wait? It mid September now, and ususally we can reseed into mid October.

Hi Nick. Fall is actually a great time to apply lawn weed controls -- they kill annual weeds that will resprout in your yard next spring. Apply now, then apply again in early spring when you fertilize.
