I have clover patches growing around my yard and wanted to get the huddle green thumbs opinions on the best way to kill it off.

I've been told Weed and Feed but have no real experience in lawn-care besides mowing and weed whackign

I've had some good results with bayer advanced season long weed control for lawns.

The name is deceiving though, it most assuredly does not last all season.

I've dealt with this issue before. The common theme I run across is you have to replace the clover with grass. Overseed and fertilize the clover areas and grass should just replace the clover. Doesn't make a lot of sense, but I've seen it work.

I alternate between Spectracide (which is the only one that I can find for centipedegrass) and Bayer. It does take a few applications a week or so apart...which I can't do right now since I'm reseeding this weekend.

Don't get me started. Bayer is one of the biggest chemical companies in the world, ranging from pharmaceuticals to pesticides. Their pesticides have been linked to all kinds of nasty poo, and that's not even talking about their Big pharma broohaha.

In December 2010, a leaked memo from the EPA’s Environmental Fate and Effects Division asserted “Clothianidin’s (Bayer's neonicotinoid pesticide) major risk concern is to non-target insects (that is, honey bees). Exposure through contaminated pollen and nectar and potential toxic effects therefore remain an uncertainty for pollinators.
