    Will vinegar kill your grass? I have only used it on my non grass area. What I did wrong, was tried the Ortho weed be gone, and didn't read that their are some for certain grass, like St Augustine, like mine, and now it's all dried up now. -(

    Take a digger & dig them out. They have very deep roots, make sure your "fork" goes all the way to the bottom. Best way I found yet!

    Dig them early in the spring as possible. I use a butcher knife. Shove it deep into the ground to cut the root and then pull the top out. Your sandy soil in Hutchinson should make the process pretty easy. The salt and vinegar treatment will kill your grass. Best used on soil where desirable plants are not growing.

    Please don't kill them! They attract bees! And we all know that the bee population is dangerously low. Without bees, there would be no food. Just sayin'. :-]
