Use of herbicides this time of year

Asked November 7, 2017, 6:12 AM EST

There is a field of weeds adjacent to our community garden here in Poolesville. As part of an Eagle Scout project, our local boy scout troop went after it with string trimmers 10 days ago. Now they would like to know if it is feasible/useful to apply an herbicide, especially at this time of year, and in consideration of any wildlife. If so, what kind? Thank you!

You did not mention what the field is used for and what weeds you may be dealing with.
At this time we do not recommend any herbicides. You can leave the field and any management until next spring.
