|Mom has always pulled all the weeds up by hand. I like to help her. This year things were really bad and as soon as we got the yard cleared of hundreds of pounds of really big weeds, more started sprouting.
We had to resort to a spray that attaches to the hose called Weed B Gone by Ortho. We talked to the vet and he said that once you spray it and it dries, it would be OK. We put some on and 2 days later it rained really hard. We waited until it dried after the original application for about 9 hours (while Mom was at work and we were in the house). It had a chance to kill the seedlings bee-fore the rained washed it all away.
If you don't have a lot of weeds, you could pull them up. The organic lawn service we used last summer said that you could mix vinegar and lemon juice to spray right on the weed. The only problem with that is, it will kill any grass that gets sprayed.
Smoke, hates sticky weeds
