    A lot of you guys are sharp on weeds and I was wanting to see if you can help me ID some yard weeds. I started out thinking it was crabgrass and it still may be. I sprayed it with Ortho Weed-B-Gone w/crabgrass control. The bottle said the bermuda would yellow out which it did but this weed seemed to love it.

    Any ideas what I got and what will kill it and not kill the bermuda. Yes, means of last resort are to till it all under and sow it down.

    Here's one that has The Weed in it but what I believe to be chickweed also

    Any help would be much appreciated

    Crabgrass or Dallis grass. I'm not good at telling the difference. But either way, I know MSMA will kill it.

    hit two weeks after the first spraying with more MSMA and that should knock it out. It is either crabgrass or dallis grass. I'm thinking it is probably dallis grass which in my experience is a little tougher to kill than crabgrass.

    It looks like johnsongrass that's been mowed on a regular basis.

    I believe this is dallisgrass and not crab grass. MSMA should work but it usually requires multiple treatments.

    PM me your address and I'll get right on it. You want anything fancy, or everything I see?
