    This stuff in is my yard and several of my customers' yards who have bermudagrass. What is it and what can I use to kill it without harming the bermudagrass? I know prosecutor will kill it but I need to know what it is and if there is a selective product out there for it.

    that IS nutsedge.

    sedgehammer or manage works great.
    some others work fine as well, but with those two you will get the best results

    it is nut-sedge, use manage or sledge hammer and it will take a couple applications. spray it when it is tall and don't mow it for a few days after.
