Weed killers for monkey grass

I have some monkey grass that I planted in a high shade area and it is filling in nicely. Last year my guy that sprays for weeds skipped over that because he wasn't sure if it was OK to use his normal weed killer on it. Before I call him, I thought I would check and see what you recommended. Thanks for your help.
