Can Fusilade II be used in Saint Auguistine grass?

I live in Central Florida as a point of reference. I have St. Augustine that is being invaded by Bermuda grass. Will Fusillade II work in a watered down state to kill the Bermuda and bring minimal harm to my St. Augustine. If so, when would be the optimum time to spray?

Answer:

No, Fusilade II Herbicide is not labeled to be used on St. Augustine grass. Unfortunately Bermuda grass is so closely related to St. Augustine grass that there is nothing that will remove Bermuda from St. Augustine and not hurt the St. Augustine as well.  In your situation it is recommended to spot treat the Bermuda with Round Up and kill it directly, and then replant St. Augustine in those areas
