24 d won't hurt the turf at all. If the Bermuda is dormant you can spray glyphosat and kill every weed

I'm looking online and seeing so many different types of 2-4-D types and brands for sell at different costs. Is one better than the other is there a specific type that anyone recommends?

Use the glyphosate. Go to tractor supply and get 41 percent for around $50 for a 2.5 gallon jug. Follow label directions. If you use 24d. Tractor supply carries amine 24d or trimec

So the 2-4-D from tractor supply is just as effective as the 2-4-D from the JDL stores? I just see different brands and prices for the same amount and was wondering if one was better than the other. Example is one brand a Mercedes while the other is a Suzuki...

As long as what you are buying is 3.8 lb per gallon 2,4-D amine it is all the same. The difference between TSC and JD is that JD is charging you homeowners price. A licensed applicator buying it by the drum or 275 gallon mini bulk along with several tons of fertilizer per year pays a different price.
