I tried Image that you can buy at walmart - didn't work (please don't laugh). I found another product that has MSMA in it that says it will kill Bahia but not bermuda. Is that what I need? I do not have any St. Augustine. I just need something that will kill the Bahia and let my Bermuda come on up.

Thanks for your help.

I get the feeling you don't have a license. You can't buy these products without a license. If you do, any pesticide/herbicide distributor will carry them.

Thanks again. No, I don't have a license. I just mow. But, I know someone who does. I will get him to order me some.

You're right, I stand corrected. I'm so used to doing this as a service I don't think in terms of what you can do on your own with non-restricted use items. The other guy is right to if this is your own lawn. Cimarron is half the cost of Manor but I can go you one better, Valuron is half the cost of Cimarron. The only difference is what applications it is labeled for. This drives me crazy cause I do a lot of business selectively removing bahia from the preferred grasses. I have to pay $70/ounce for the same level of active ingredient a farmer can pay $17/ounce for to spray on pasture land.:confused:

Thanks for all the input. This is for my own yard. Where then can I purchase any of these (especially the valuron if it cheaper).
