Medium_img_2313 Looking for a product that will kill a bulb lily that is popping up everywhere in our grass.

I have attached a picture of what we think is a Lily that is taking over our backyard. These plants were in the backyard before we landscaped and think we may have some missed some bulbs before laying turf and now they are just multiplying. Is there a product available that we can put onto the leaf that will also kill the bulbs and stop them from spreading.
Thanks for your help.

Answer: Hi Clair,
As you mentioned, there have obviously been parts of bulbs left behind in the soil which are now showing signs of life. The foliage can be painted, or carefully sprayed with Zero Weedspray to try and kill off the underground root system. Because the bulb stores energy for the plant, it may take several applications of Zero weedspray before any effect is noticed. Unfortunately I feel it is going to be an ongoing job for you for a little while.
