    Anyone else in the transition zone seeing a surge in Bermuda coming in to fescue lawns? In the past we've had issues in small sections of lawns but this season it's been wide spread. These photos are from a client that just signed off on a new property that we are taking over. The clients don't want to do a total renovation so right now hitting it with Tenacity and Ornamec.... We'll see.

    Plan on hitting it at max label rate of each... Our temps have been getting in the mid 80's so having to watch as far as that goes.

    Several of my clients are having good results using Turflon Ester.

    I'll tell you, it's horrible around here this year. I forgot to get some pics but the Tenacity looks like it's working. Starting to get some nice white looking bermuda.

    Don't see on the label where it controls Bermuda, just bleaches or whitens it. Please update your results. I have always used Pylex.

    Started playing with Ornamec last fall but put quite a hurting on my turf at the .5oz/1000 rate. No surfactant was used and temps were in the low 80’s. Anyone have better luck?

    It provides good control of nimblewill though.

    OP is going to have good results. Thumbs Up

    The product label says that bermuda is sensitive to tenacity. What I've researched is to hit it with Tenacity and go back a couple weeks later and hit with Ornamec for a decent kill rate.
