    I have 3 lawns infested with Bermudagrass that takes off after the temps warm up every summer and last throughout the fall. It's only getting worse and was wondering what if anything I can do to reduce infestation or kill entirely.

    What about using ornamec?

    It has a rate for controlling and a higher rate for killing. I just had this conversation with my supplier, today. Unless I can get the next-door-neighbor on board (one of my customers), though, I'm fighting a losing battle. From what I hear, I can't even spray the reduced rate (control) and not hurt the fescue.

    I'd love to hear what you guys say about this.
