Acclaim works well on bluegrass / ryegrass lawns, but I'm not sure if its labeled for bermuda grass.

I would try Drive always worked well for us. Just watch your mix ratio's.

Don't apply in high temps.

If your customer has a bad crabgrass problem in a bermuda lawn this time of year, I'm willing to bet that crabgrass isn't the only weed growing. 2 or 3 apps of MSMA will have that lawn cleaner than it has probably ever been. Adding metsulfuron or using a product that has a broadleaf herbicide plus MSMA would also be good for the first app. It's almost 100 in MS., so you might want to wait for a slightly cooler day in Georgia. Also, lay down some pre-emerge to prevent future crabgrass this season.
