This weed is a miniture clover, vines, small yellow flower. Taking over centipede grass. Over last two years have tried weed-be-gone, Scotts weed and feed, Vigaro weed and feed with all to no avail on the weed itself. Two neighbors with same problem. What is this stuff? Please suggest!
Thank you, Dave

    I seem to have the same problem weed in my centipede lawn in Lawrenceville. The county extension office identified ours as small hop clover. You might see if that’s what you have. Unfortunately, ours seems to resist pre-emergent treatments and all of the centipede-safe post-emergent products we have tried!

    Has anyone found a way to get rid of this yet?
    I have the same problem and have tried almost everything at Home Depot and nothing seems to slow it down.

    I have the same stuff in my yard. I can knock it back a bit with weed b gone mixed with some dishsoap. Vinegar will kill it in my flower beds but it would kill grass too.
