Does Store Bought Weed Killer Work? // With RESULTS // Florida Pusley vs Dayflower

Florida pusley and dayflower could be getting confused so I show you how to get rid of both while also showing you that store bought weed control actually does …


  1. Having trouble controlling day flower weeds in my st Augustine, south Florida… not sure if I should spray (every time time I do causes turf damage but it works) however the weeks come back after 3-4 weeks. I’ve been using Celsius and I’ve reached my yearly limit. Would you use a pre-m and just until best season or is it too late to spray post-m in your opinion?

  2. According to University of Florida.
    2,4-D = Safe for Floratam (will stress it a little).
    2,4-D + "Mecoprop" = Not safe for Floratam, but safe for Palmetto (will stress it a little).
    Basically if you have Floratam (noted by purple stolons in the fall) and see the words "Mecoprop" or "MSM" (also harsh on Palmetto) on your product. Do not use it. I mention these two because they are seen in some Southern formulations that say "wont kill grass". But if you open the label it says do not use on Floratam. Always read the labels fully.

  3. You touched on a weed called "Calinga?" I have that all over my yard. did you make a video on that weed yet? I tried searching and don't see it. I live in near by Bradenton area.

  4. Hey Allyn great video as always. Orlando FL with St. Aug here. I'm going to be throwing down my Nov application of fert and N-ext products. I just threw down Dithiopyr last month with fert and N-ext products, can I throw down the sunniland on this Nov app too? or should I just stick to the Nov app you suggested in the guide and leave the next app of pre emergent for beginning of next year? Thanks for all the help and knowledge

  5. I used Spectracide concentrate and got almost no results broadcasting it with my Ortho hose end sprayer. Now I'm going to have to try a different solution with the pump sprayer.

  6. Hello Allen, In one of your videos you updated this hose sprayer by cutting of the sieve.
    I don‘t find this video anymore. Are you able to send me a link to this video? Thanks

  7. This pusley weed is fierce here. Popping up everywhere. I am going to Lowe’s tonight and buying a bag of the weed and feed you showed on the video. Hope it works.

  8. Hey Allyn, I threw down the Hi-Yield with Dithiopyr pre-emergent on Monday, and it seems to have stunted my St. Aug. I normally mow Fridays, and it doesn’t look like it needs a cut today. Could the pre-emerg have stunted it? I am in West Palm Beach, it’s been warm and rainy, but tomorrow temps are going lower for sure.

  9. I’m not running around playing with the neighborhoods Pusley yet but boy am I enjoying this channel. All in due time.
    By the way my lawn is looking amazing.
    Thank you sir!!!!!!

  10. I just had some forestry mulching done on my property. I have about .75 of an acre. The company told me to just let the mulch rest for a year. He’s cutter head blades weren’t that sharp which left big chucks of bark behind. Should I wait the year? Should I hire someone to come and bull dose the entire yard? What’s your or anyone’s advice?

  11. LCN, have you done or considered doing a video about a smart phone app for plant identification. For instance I've used PlantNet to identify weeds but I would welcome better suggestions. Weed identification seems so important because it affects which weed killer you buy.
