    How would you kill centipede that is invading bermuda lawn. Are you of aware of anything that targets centipede? I've been researching via the WWW and haven't found anything that targets centipede, but I was thinking I could fertilize at maximaum rate for bermuda.

    Bermuda can handle more N than centipede and this would stress the centipede
    Apply lime to centipede area... Since centipede is acid loving... I thought this would further stress the centipede.

    MSMA is safe for bermuda but will burn centipede

    Thanks... I put "MSMA" and "CENTIPEDE" in the www search engine and got lot better results. Thanks for putting me on the right track.
