I have a problem with unwanted bermuda that is invading my bluegrass/ryegrass, can anyone help? Is there something I can spray?

Acclaim + Turflon + spreader sticker, 3 to 4 times per year for 2 years.

The only thing I have found to kill bermuda grass is 6% round-up. This will kill bluegrass and rye grass also.
Turflon is a broadleaf weed killer and aclaim is a post emergent control for annual grassy weeds, I don't think these products are even on these labels are they? Bermuda Grass is a perenial grass which is a warm season grass ...

Fusilade would work IF it is labeled for use on your Blue/Rye. Be sure and verify that.

That particular detail is not in my memory since we don't have Bluegrass here.

I've all but given up on getting rid of bermuda. I've killed entire lawns with round-up mixed with fusalade and it looks dead but two years later it's back. I'm learning to live with it.

vantage will do the trick.

Unfortunately I have some Bermuda in a couple of my Fescue turfs. The folks at Lesco said there was nothing I could do to effectively eliminate it, with the exeption of RounsUp.

In my experience Acclaim is safer for your desireable grasses than Fusilade. I believe Fusilade WILL kill bluegrass. Also I don't think Fusilade is labeled for residential turf.

Acclaim is listed for bermuda suppression; so is Turflon. Turflon=triclopyr; bermuda does not like triclopyr. Mixing the two together boosts the effectiveness of acclaim something like at least 10%.

Isn't Vantage the same thing as Roundup?

Sahara will do the trick!! unfortunately it will kill anything in it's path!!!
Also, hard to get other things to grow after spraying with this bad boy stuff!!
Sahara was a great name to call this stuff!!
