    Q
    My Dismiss is no longer in solution?
    My Dismiss, made in 2013 has fallen out of solution. Shaking the bottle brings it back but it immediately falls out of solution when the shaking stops. Is there anything that can be done to get it to stay in solution? Isn't this supposed to have a 3 year shelf life? If so, what happened to cause this?
    A

    Q
    Have not mowed yet this spring. should I mow (high cut) before using Dismiss on Star of Bethlehem to help?
    A
    Hi Dan,

    Yes, I would do at least one mowing before applying Dismiss.  Then wait about 3 days before spraying and allow at least 3 days after spraying before mowing again.  This will make sure the grass and weeds are actively growing for the most weed control absorption.  Please let me know if you have any questions.  

    Thanks,

    Q
    Will Dismiss control Bahiagrass in St Augustine? I see that Image has some effect.
    A
    Dismiss will not control Bahiagrass in St. Augustine. St. Augustine is very fragile so it is very difficult to control Bahiagrass in it.  Blade is labeled for use in St. Augustine but there are some conditions for this application.  The grass needs to be well established and healthy and you cannot spray when it is over 85 degrees.  You should use a ½ ounce rate per acre of Dyneamic Surfactant with the Blade, and a second application 4 weeks later if the Bahia is still growing.  Blade can stunt St. Augustine if the grass is not strong, so adding a good foliar fertilizer with the application is good to do.  Coron 28-0-0 + Turf Nectar well help the St. Augustine grass overcome this.

    Q
    Does Dismiss kill poa annua selectively?
    cool season grasses ... what is the proper mix ratio for a 2 gal. tank sprayer? Does freezing affect it (if stored in winter in unheated garage)?
    A
    The Dismiss Turf Herbicide is not labeled to kill poa annua but it is not listed as a grass that it is safe to be sprayed on. Tolerant cool seasons grasses are : Creeping Bentgrass, Kentucky Bluegrass, Rough Bluegrass, Fine & Tall Fescue, Perrenial Ryegrass. No product should be stored in an area where it can freeze or get too hot. Insecticides and herbicides need to be stored in a temperature stable environment out of direct sunlight to sustain the longest shelf life and strongest potency of the product. A product that is safe on several cool season grasses and will cover broad leaf weeds as well as grassy weeds and Poa Annua would be the Echelon 4SC. Echelon 4SC is a selective/post emergent product like the Dismiss but better suited to your needs. You can review the product label for dilution rates for your type of yard. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
