What is a good pre-emergent for controlling sticker burrs/goatheads?

I live in central Texas and have a terrible problem with stickers in the yard. Don't know the exact name of the stickers; we call them goatheads among other things.


Surflan AS would be a great option. It is safe to be used on most grass types including some of the most sensitive ones like St Augustine. It will control Sandburs in your yard, as well as a multitude of other broadleaf weeds. It is highly recommended that you refer to the product label prior to purchase to make sure your lawn type is listed under grass species that are tolerant to the product.
