    Q
    Can I use Dismiss to control Wild Onion growing in a rather large rose garden?
    This rose garden is well established and about 1/2 acre in size. Wild onion has infested about 1/4 of the rose garden. If Dismiss will not work, what other alternative is there to get rid of the wild onion short of digging up the roses?
    A
    Dismiss is only meant to be used on turf and is not labeled for ornamental areas. It may kill the roses.  When treating a weed like wild onions it is best to usually spot treat the onions with a glyphosate or RoundUp type product.  This is the best option.  If that is not an issue, you can use Image 70 DG which is labeled for ornamental areas, but you should try to keep the spray directed at the bed areas and not on the roses.

    Q
    How much water to add per ounce of Dismiss South?
    A
    You will need to take a look at the product label as you will not be mixing by the ounce or by the gallon. Dismiss South is a very specific herbicide and the label states when using it on the tolerant species of turf for weed control, you use 9.5-14 ounces per acre, which breaks down to roughly 0.220-0.331 per 1000 sq/ft. When using herbicides the amount of water you use is not what is key, only that you get the correct amount of product over the correct amount of area so as to not harm your lawn by using to much, or not see results by not using enough. The best way to measure out amount per a set gallon of water is to mark off 1000 sq/ft, walk it with just water and see how many gallons of water it takes you to cover that area. Whether its 1 or 5 gallons of water both are correct and you will mix whatever you come up with for coverage with either of the above stated rates. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

    Q
    Will Dismiss South Herbicide kill field sandbur or cocklebur in Tif 419 Bermuda grass?
    A

    Dismiss South Herbicide is not labelled for field sandbur or cocklebur. Sandburs are easier to prevent than to try to get rid of once they have invaded your yard. To prevent sandburs you should apply a pre-emergent such as Dimension 2EW or Pendulum 2G Herbicide in the late fall. For post-emergent applications, we would suggest EndRun Herbicide
