Preen works well. Doesn’t bother established plants because it only prevents new growth. It doesn’t kill anything. And they have a newer product that works for 6 months instead of just 3.

Known by who? Here is the latest (30 January 2020) information from the Federal Government. I don't consider lawyers who win lawsuits to know anything about science or medicine.

"EPA has concluded its regulatory review of glyphosate—the most widely used herbicide in the United States. After a thorough review of the best available science, as required under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act, EPA has concluded that there are no risks of concern to human health when glyphosate is used according to the label and that it is not a carcinogen."

I can only tell you that I have a local gentleman coming over Monday AM to get my out-of-control weeds organized. I have all rocks front&back so the challenge is getting all the weeds up thru roots along fence and thru rocks. He up-roots, spritzes the main root thing w/whatever root thing he uses and pulls all remaining weeds up&out, My vinegar solution should work in the future once the weeds are up-rooted. We'll see...fingers crossed

Zoysia Green. Had these people for 6 years. They know lawns, and weeds, and treat according to requirements. I have one of the best lawns in the neighbour hood. If you want to spray with a bottle. Lots of luck. There is also mole crickets,and Beatles, and other bugs that will eat your lawn
