wild onions in Bermuda

Bermuda lawn that has a lot of these wild onions growing in it. Is there anything I can do at this part of the season? Is there anything I can do to prevent in the fall?

If it's dormant Round-Up will work, get on a good fert and pre-m program.

The Roundup solution is the best way to go if you are dealing with dormant turf. If not, spot treat using the max rate of a 2,4-D postemergent with a surfactant. I've found that esters work better for Wild Onion/Garlic but it is still going to take a few treatments over a couple of seasons to get control.

For our part of the country, 2-4d in November and repeat in February, do this for three consecutive years. I haven't tried it yet but that is what my info says from Auburn University.

Turf here in Bama is starting to green up so do not use round up. I use 3- way mixed with pendimethalin I do 3 apps one in Oct, Feb, and Apr. Apr app is a blend with fert, this seems to put things in check. I like to supress weeds before the heat sets in. I don't spray if temps above 95.

After you treat (at lest 2 days) the bermuda tell the homeowner to cut bermuda short. This will also help with spring green up.
