How do I kill the kentucky blue grass that keeps showing up each spring in my bermuda? I always use a pre emergent and it still keeps coming back. Thanks!

It will be difficult to kill the kentucky blue without affecting your bermuda. Since the bluegrass is a cool season grass and bermuda is a warm season grass there will only be a short period of time when they are both evident and growing at the same time. Digging it out is one option, overseeding with more to make the two grasses equal throughout the turf is another. Aside from that, I don't really have a solution to the problem. Sorry!
