I am trying to find a herbicide to kill Creeping Charlie.
It should contain triclopyr which contains Weed B Gon Purple, Weed B Gon Chickweed and Weed B GonMax. ,
You can use a Glyphosate product like Glyphosel pro to spot treat. Tenacity is labeled to control Ground Ivy "Creeping Charlie" as post emergent control. We highly recommend using a temporary turf colorant like Turf Mark Blue so that you can see where you spray with the Tenacity to avoid overlapping. Tenacity is a great product, but also a very strong product so too much overlapping or mixing the product too strong can cause temporary damage and whitening to your turf around the ground ivy. The color will come back in the lawn after 3-4 weeks but to avoid this potential problem it is best to use a colorant to make sure no overlap occurs. To get optimum results for post emergent control it is recommended you use a Non Ionic Surfactant in your mixture as well.
