Bermuda grass and weeds.

What can I use on Bermuda grass for weeds this time of year and is it to late to fertilize.

Bermuda grass acts differently in the southern zone. Mostly you use less nitrogen 1/2 pound per 1000 square feet when you apply your fall application min 4 weeks before the first frost. To find out in more detail for your location i would suggest hitting the university websites and finding maintenance calendars that address your area. Grassy weeds should die out with cooler weather on the way, the broad leaf you can spray those anytime. The nice thing about warm season grass is when it is dormant you can use a cut down mix of glyphosate to kill winter weeds without harming the bermuda however each area has a date that this type of application should not be done as it could delay the spring green up.

Every February I mix a weak solution of gly & spray anything in the yard that's green.

I think we really need more information than 'weeds in bermuda'. Are you looking for post-emergent or pre? What kind of weeds? All weeds and all weed controls are not created equal. Give us a few details to work with.

Columbus, MS - October - Bermuda:
The weeds you are seeing in the fall are "broadleaf" weeds. Just spray them with 2,4-d and apply a winterizer blend of fertilizer (low in slow release nitrogen). A soil test will determine if you need any phosphorous.
