Khaki Weeds - Knowledgebase Question

Question by iclipem

I was hoping I could attach a picture but I have what I believe is patches of khaki weed in the Bermuda part of my Bermuda /st. Augustine mix lawn. The Dicamba and MCPA herbicide I found to kill it, can't be used in temps above 90 degrees. I live 50 miles south of Dallas and it's pretty hot this time of yr, what other recommendations do you have to get rid of this stuff???

Thanks for your tim

Dicamba and 2.4-D are listed as effective for khaki weed control, but it is generally not recommended to apply herbicides when the weather is very hot or dry, as this increases the risk of injury to the turf. The safest course is to wait until the weather cools some before treating your lawn.
