Foxtails

Foxtails are a summer annual grass that can be very annoying. It starts in spring, grows all summer, then dies in the fall. There are several species of foxtails that grow in lawns, but they are all annuals.

Control: Foxtails can be controlled two ways: spraying existing plants or preventing seeds using pre-emergent. Use Ortho Crabgrass Killer to kill existing plants, or use Scotts Halts pre-emergent in the spring to kill the seeds before they emerge.

Keep the lawn mown tall to prevent seeds from starting. Do not water daily because seeds need daily watering to become established.
