I live on Long Island which at one time was all woods. Creeping Charlie pops-up all over is there a way to control it. Pulling it out is not an option.

Hi and welcome to NGA!

One of the weed killers for lawns will take out the Creeping Charlie if it's in your lawn - something like Weed B Gone.
"The Universe speaks in many languages, but only one voice. It speaks in the language of hope; It speaks in the language of trust; It speaks in the language of strength, and the language of compassion. It is the language of the heart and the language of the soul. But always, it is the same voice. It is the voice of our ancestors, speaking through us, And the voice of our inheritors, waiting to be born. It is the small, still voice that says: We are one. No matter the blood; No matter the skin; No matter the world; No matter the star; We are one. No matter the pain; No matter the darkness; No matter the loss; No matter the fear; We are one. Here, gathered together in common cause. we agree to recognize this singular truth, and this singular rule: That we must be kind to one another, because each voice enriches us and ennobles us, and each voice lost diminishes us. We are the voice of the Universe, the soul of creation, the fire that will light the way to a better future. We are one."

It's really hard to kill it here. I've had the best results by hitting it with a weed killer late in the fall so it goes into the winter weakened. Then spray what survived again in the early spring. The seeds seem to last forever though, and others will come up to replace the ones that died. Good Luck.
