    Q
    Why would I purchase Ornamec 170 instead of the stronger Over the Top?
    I am trying to kill very stubborn bermuda in my flower beds, and around trees.
    A

    Gordons Ornamec 170 Grass Herbicide will work for bermudagrass and is safe around ornamentals. You will need to use more of the product per gallon of water versus the Ornamec Over the Top so you will get more for your money if you purchase the Over the Top

    Q
    Will Gordons Ornamec 170 Grass Herbicide kill the bermuda grass invading my St. Augustine with out harming it?
    A
    Unfortunately, Bermuda grass is so closely related to St. Augustine grass that there is nothing that will remove Bermuda from St. Augustine and not hurt the Bermuda as well.  In your situation, it is recommended to spot treat the Bermuda with Round Up and kill it directly, and then replant St. Augustine in those areas. We do carry some professional round up products:  http://www.domyownpestcontrol.com/nonselective-herbicides-c-188_408.html

    Q
    Will Ornamec 170 kill Brome grass in a lawn without damaging the Kentucky Bluegrass?
    A

    Gordons Ornamec 170 Grass Herbicide is a grass killer and will harm Kentucky Bluegrass if sprayed.  When applied to grasses it can only be on Tall Fescue and Zoyiagrass.  Using a pre-emergent like Dimension before the brome germinates would be a better option for control.  If you need to control it post emergent, spot treating with a glyphosate based product and reseeding the KGB would be best.

    Q
    Can I mix Gordons Ornamec 170 Grass Herbicide with Tenacity on Tall Fescue lawn for weed control of Dallis Grass?
    Can I mix this with Tenacity and apply to Tall Fescue lawn for weed control of Dallis Grass and other weeds?

    Gordons Ornamec 170 Grass Herbicide is labeled to control dallisgrass in tall fescue in the spring.  Tenacity Herbicide states the following in reference to tank mixing. We always recommend doing a small tank mix test before application. "Tenacity has been tested in tank mixtures with Barricade 65WG Herbicide (prodiamine), Vanquish® (dicamba), Turflon® ester (riclopyr), Spotlight™ (fluroxypyr), Quicksilver™ (carfentrazone), Basagran® (bentazon), Princep® (simazine), and AAtrex® (atrazine) for safety and efficacy on turfgrasses. Tenacity must be applied at reduced rates (4 fl. oz./A or less) if tank mixed with atrazine, bentazon or simazine. Other tank mixture partners may be safe but have not been tested. Turf managers wanting to tank mix Tenacity with other herbicides should test on a small basis for compatibility, safety and efficacy before treating large areas
