Just a suggestion, check the label on Fusilade II. I use it to take bermuda out of Zoysia. Ornamec is the same thing. I don't know if it can be used in Fescue.

Acclaim is the best for "controlling" bermuda in fescue. but, in reality, once it's there, there is not going to be a good means for complete control.
