Wiregrass - Total Kill Approach

  • To date, the best control was the use of a product like Quik Pro that would kill the bermuda, but take out any turfgrass along with it.
  • Bermudagrass control requires completely killing the whole plant - roots and all.
  • This means the plant must be growing as healthy as possible at the time, which is usually during July and August.

Wiregrass - A Proven & Selective Control Method

  • The combination of three products, Turflon Ester, Acclaim Extra and Spreader Sticker applied 4 times a year per growing season for two consecutive years will result in control of common Bermudagrass with minimal to no damage to your tall fescue turf.
  • The cocktail should be applied monthly beginning in May and with applications recurring in June, July and August.
  • Spreader/Sticker is a surfactant that aids in the herbicides spreading completely over the entire plant to ensure effectiveness.
