    I have used tupersan alot in seeding fescue in the summer. It is the only pre-emergent that i know of that will let fescue germinate and keep crab grass out. I am pretty sure it is not labeled to kill bermuda though.
    Maybe you are looking for "acclaim"?

    Shawn read the label in the link provided.
    You will see at the bottom, it IS labeled for bermuda.

  6. Tupersan will not kill bermunda grass BUT will prevent the nodes from tacking and taking root!!!!!

    As the label states, it will "suppress" bermuda from encroaching. I thought your question was will it KILL bermuda in an established lawn.
