I looked through the archives and could not find anything related to these species. I have a bermuda grass lawn that is overrun with bahia and dandelions and clover. What do i do and how can i get rid of these?

There are no currently available products that will kill bahia grass and not affect bermuda. Nor is there anything that will eliminate clover without harming your bermuda. Dandelions, however, can be killed by spot treating with a broadleaf killer such as 2,4-D. The clover isn't affected because it has tuberous storage roots and will simply regrow if the tops are killed. I'm afraid digging out the weeds and reseeding is about your only option. It's important to know that a thick healthy bermudagrass lawn will crowd out most weeds so your goal should be to water, mow and feed your bermuda to help it grow thick and lush.
