We live in Madeira Beach, Florida and have Floratam grass on our front lawn. Recently I spotted Bermuda grass growing through and now seems to be getting suffocating my Floratam. How can I get rid of the Bermuda without killing my Floratam? Thank you.

There really is no way to get rid of the bermuda in your Floratam lawn without killing some of your Floratam in the process. Your best option is to either live with the mix, or if the Bermuda is just sporatic you can spot treat with a dabber type applicator any bermuda you see and accepting some loss of your Floratam. Once the bermuda is gone, your Floratam will eventually fill in the dead spots.
