    I hate Burmudagrass! Havn't had much luck finding anything labeled for it's removal from 100% Kentucky Bluegrass lawn...(residential) Thought I had seen one labeled for it, but I'm coming up empty:cry:

    Turflon ester and acclaim mixed together has showed decent results on young bermudagrass. It does take a couple of years to see results. If the lawn is heavily infested, you may need to just kill it and start over.

    I was thinking Fusilade wasn't labeled for residential lawns? I'll have too pull the label.

    Turflon ester and Aclaim are most often recommended. But in a similar situation--I gave up after four treatments.

    Don't Fusilade & Ornamec have the same active ingredient:confused:

    I have seen the recomendation of Turflon ester (Triclopyr) Any quess on results with a triclopyr in an amine formulation...Like Chaser 2 amine (2,4-d + Triclopyr?)

    The 2,4-D counteracts the acclaim. Turflon ester only. I use 3/4 oz of Turflon and 1 oz of Acclaim per 1 gallon of water. I only use a backpack sprayer on small or spot spray jobs.
