    Frequent applications of MSMA are putting this weed down but it keeps spreading like wildfire. Which Pre Emergent Herbicide will keep this bad boy from coming back? This weed is infesting my common bermuda lawn.

    P.S. What is the name of this weed? I haven't a clue.

    Thanks!

    I am from cool season country. Crabgrass is a possibility, particularly if your weather is warm. Dimension pre-emergent should stop this from germinating--but after that, it only works in the post -emergent stage when the crabgrass is less than an inch tall. (If that is what it is). Maybe you will have an early frost.

    I live in Georgia. I can't find any products with dimension in it. Everywhere around here has halts and that stuff totally did not work for me.

    Crabgrass, and anything will prevent it . I personaly use Dimension. Find a Lesco/John deere dealer. Heres the closest one

    ask them about Drive. It works alot better than MSMA. But you have to use the specified sticker which is Methylated Seed Oil to get consistent results

    Drive will kill whats already up and growing. Dimension will prevent what seed is in your yard from germinating.

    If the MSMA is killing it which sound like it is maybe all you need is the Dimension.
