    How do I get rid of Bermuda grass? Last year I sprayed round-up on the small section to kill it. Which it did,for only a few months. What can I use?

    There are only two chemicals that I know of that are rated to kill bermuda in a cool season turf. One is the active ingredient in ornamec and fusilade which is fluziflop. The other is turflon or triclopyr. They both require applications while the bermuda is actively growing and it will require multiple applications. this requires a considerable amount of knowing how much to use and a customer who is willing to pay for all of the treatments for erradication.

    Hope this helps,

    It is very hard to kill it, about the only thing you can do is control it.

    Tear it up and get rid of it. Especially if it's mixing with cool season grass.
