Weeds or seed stalks?

I'm at a loss. I gave this yard a good mow and they started springing up like crazy. Been raining a lot here so that may have something to do with it but a good, healthy yard shouldn't look like this should it? St Augustine with I believe some rye grass mixed in.

Hope it's not Dallisgrass but it very well may be.

Yes thank you I was thinking possibly that's what it was but yeah definitely. Just strange because it wasn't growing like that before the mow.

Is there a way to keep those to a minimum other than just regular mowing. I suppose that now that I have the account it won't be a problem with weekly mowings but with the rains they sprout quick!

weekly mowing it will still be a problem if you have good irrigation or rainfall....this time of year bahia goes like crazy...to the point honestly where it could be mowed twice a week....at least here that is how it performs.
