Use a broadleaf killer that contains 2,4-D or Dicamba, it will selectively kill the violets without damaging the grass. Another great wild violet herbicide is called quinclorac- a little more expensive but offers a little better control.

Adding a surfactant will help the herbicide adhere better to the waxy leaf surface.
