I have a few patches of cheatgrass growing in a few areas of my lawn. Will Bayer Bio Advanced Weed Killer work on this evasive weed? If so, should I spray more than one application?
The Bayer Advanced All In One Lawn Weed and Crabgrass Killer is not labeled to control cheatgrass. It has over 200 other broadleaf and grassy weeds on the label but it likely will not harm the target grass you have. Cheatgrass isn’t listed on many labels as its hard to control. You will likely need to use a product like Roundup to spot treat the cheatgrass and then fill in the bare spots with grass seed to try and keep it from coming back. There are a few pre emergents on the market that claim to prevent cheatgrass so you can look over those to see if you want to use them for prevention this fall and next spring. The Dimension 2EW is labeled to prevent brome/cheatgrass and can be used to prevent it and other weeds like crabgrass in the lawn.
