    Crabgrass...scotlykins is correct, MSMA will kill it dead...or a paintbrush/sponge with RU. I used some MSMA and had good luck, watch the application or you will get some yellowing...you may get yellowing anyway (I did in spots).

    The weed is dallisgrass--for sure. MSMA is the way to go, and a product with quinclorac will probably do the trick to, but have not read the label for that.

    Classic crab grass. Get it before it goes to seed and makes gazillions of babies...

    I think bermuda is a weed.. lol

    anyway.. that does not look like crabgrass, dallas (dallis) or goose. It does look somewhat like a tall fescue (K31). Do you have foxtail in your region? Looks similar..

    actually, anything can be a weed. if you don't want st.augustine growing in your bermuda lawn, then st.aug is a weed.

    good luck. catch em before seed releases

    Undoubtedly, it is dallisgrass. Be ready to retreat it in 10 -14 days after the initial spray. And then retreat the retreat and then again and again. And then be ready to spray it again next year. But yeah, MSMA and sticker spreader will eventually take care of it.
