Wild Lettuce (Prickly Lettuce) – Control

It looks like dandelion leaves at first…..but it makes a tall stem. What could this be?

It’s wild lettuce…..and it’s edible!

You can dig the long taproot with a dandelion fork (click for sources)  or uproot it with a Water Weeder.

A spot spray of organic non-selective weed killer or synthetic non-selective weed killer (click for sources) would work.

For your lawn, one of the broad spectrum herbicides like Bonide Weed Beater (click for sources), Ortho MAX (click for sources) or Bayer Season Long Control (click for sources) could give excellent control.

Or make a salad!
