Safety Products

Please be sure to read the product label of any insecticide you choose to use to get information on the personal protective safety gear you will need. In most situations, it is recommended that you wear long pants, a long sleeved shirt, closed toe shoes with socks, chemical resistant gloves, and goggles. In areas where ventilation is poor, a manufacturer may recommend you wear a mask or a respirator. We have put together two different safety kits that will make selecting the correct safety gear easier for you.

What Is Dallisgrass?

Dallisgrass is a tall, often deep-rooted grassy weed that is an unwelcome sight in a lawn or other landscaped property. Learn where to look for dallisgrass and you'll be ready to move on to controlling dallisgrass in the seasons ahead.

Look in the Right Place

Dallisgrass favors damp or marshy parts of land that has been developed or worked by humans. You'll find it frequently in areas of lawns and pastures that have sufficient moisture, or even along golf courses where the conditions are right. Dallisgrass weeds enjoy full sunlight.

Dallisgrass weeds are most common across the Southern half of the United States. This tall perennial loves the humidity of these lower, warmer areas and doesn't take to higher elevations as readily.

Look at the Right Time

Dallisgrass plants spread by the production of many seeds at a time. If you know when these seeds will germinate, you can try to get a jump on this stubborn weed. As mentioned, dallisgrass thrives in warmer weather. Dallisgrass seeds will begin to germinate in late spring and summer when soil temperatures hit the 60 degree mark. Look for new clumps of dallisgrass to appear soon after.
