Wild Onions in the Lawn

I have wild onions growing in my lawn. I've tried using weed killer, but it came back. Can someone tell me what to use to get kill these onions without killing my lawn?:confused:

Re: Wild Onions in the Lawn

I had good luck with a weed killer called Speedzone. The onions can be tough & need a second application. Be sure not to cut them for at least a week after spraying. I think I also used a spreader sticker in the mix. I spot treated them individually giving each one a good spray.

Or before you spray them, you could treat 'em like chives and snip them for kitchen use...

If there's not too many of them, you might use a hand-held vegecide sprayer and just do them in one plant at a time.

What part of the country do these grow in...I have never seen them around me

Re: Wild Onions in the Lawn

I live in florida and have lots of them under the pecan trees, think about a salad to cure your problem
