I spot sprayed with Celsius where a few weeds had popped up (must have had a coverage gap in my September dithiopyr treatment). Any warm season folks have any advice on whether or not a late fall pre-em treatment is useful?

POA has taken over 2 area of my yard. Heavy dose of image applied this weekend to attack the POA and a free winter weeds that matrixed through my fall pre-emer treatment.
Has anyone had success with image on POA?

Your question is ambiguous - there are many "Poa" species (including Poa Pratensis, know as Kentucky Blue Grass). Two are mentioned in the context of weeds most often - Poa Annua (Annual Bluegrass) and Poa Trivialis (Roughstalk Bluegrass).

Which are you asking about?

The objective is to fill in the front lawn entirely with St Augustine. My wife has been expanding her gardens into the lawn and moving patches of St Aug into the unfilled areas. So...
Today I sprayed the weedy areas between the patches of grass with this stuff.

Here's the patched part of the yard.

I got about an inch and a half of rain in June, and .18 inch yesterday but I finally decided to turn on my sprinkler system.

And discovered that the controller no longer works.

So I spot watered a few spots that were doing worse.
