How do I kill wild onions in my lawn?
I have a two acre lot in west Tennessee on what used to be agricultural land. I can't afford to seed or sod the whole thing. The front yard is not too bad because it has been hydroseeded with Bermuda. In the back, all we have done is mow. (Oddly, when you cut a pasture with a riding mower, it doesn't know it's not a pasture any more. . .ha ha!) We have onions out the ying yang! I've heard liming will help. That makes a little sense to me because I limed my front yard a few years ago, and the onions are almost non existent. I was looking at your Battleship III. Is this a good product to spray on my seeded/sodded areas as well as my non seeded areas?
Battleship III is a good product, but since it is 2, 4-D free it is not labeled to treat wild onions. A product with 2, 4-D is usually suggested. We would recommend the Hi-Yield 2, 4-D Selective Weed Killer as your best option for treating wild onions.
