You could have sprayed Round-Up when the Bermuda was dormant, too late for that. Wait till this fall.

Thanks for the reply, it's a long story how I took over the grounds at the place, part of it is new,I(we)installed the sod, I will try to explain this but I can tell it won't go over good.

If this is the same poa annua, or annual bluegrass down here ia Arkansas, 2-4-d won't do it. simazine or atazine will work at higher rates with some yellowing, and msma added will help. add ferrome/iron, surfactant and ammonia nitrate to tank mix, and fertilize very heavy w/ grannular ammonia or urea, and BE SURE to water in 36 hours, and once daily for 2 weeks. all poa should burn off in 3 weeks, then fert w/ slow release heavy, and put out simazine/barricade mix in early september to prevent.

TJ,
Tell the customer it's going to die out naturally here within 5 weeks. Annual Bluegrass can't take heat and it sure gets hot here in the summer. If it's new sod don't put any pre-emergent on it except (drawing a mind blank here ... it's a fungicde that's used on bentgrass greens). Call your pesticide supplier (Lesco, Estes, etc.)in Tulsa or Oklahoma City and they'll know what I'm trying to remember here. Also avoid MSMA on new sod as it may kill it.

Image will do a fairly good job on Poa, and it tends to be safe on Bermuda. However, I agree with the previous post, it will die out when the temps get in the mid 80's. Pre-Emergent in Fall will keep it from coming back next year.
