My small front lawn is swamped with MT. It's to late to save the lawn, will a blow-torch kill the MT or will it just grow back angry??
Nothing known to man will rid you of mare's tail. But if it makes you feel better, blast away!
Best method to get rid is to move house. Only take cuttings and seeds with you.
Embrace the mares tail. Unless you're ready to wage war.
Some have reported success by spraying the plant after 'bruising' the stems/leaves. You could try rolling/roughing the lawn somehow, and coating everything in RoundUp. With repeat applications for the rest of summer as it continues to grow. It may work.. but perhaps not. Personally I would just mow it often and pretend it's chubby grass.
Try injecting it, with a needle with glyphosate,
Yes, but if you find any of those little pepperpot spore holders don't put them on the heap.
