    We have a customer that has Emerald Zoysia installed and Bermuda came up through the Zoysia. Well he was told by an old employee that the Zoysia would choke out the Bermuda and it has yet to do so. Does anyone know of a chemical we can spray on it to kill the Bermuda without hurting the Zoysia?

    Bermuda will take over eventually because it grows much faster than Zoysia.

    Fusilade can be used to control the Bermuda, however don't expect it to be a one-time application.

    I'm referring to Fusilade II. The label states it can be used to control Bermuda without harming Zoysia.
