invader in my lawn

Asked July 19, 2016, 1:23 PM EDT

This guy (see photo) is invading my tall fescue lawn. I don't think he's crabgrass. and I can't tell if he's Knotgrass, Bermuda grass or some other creature. Can you help, please, even though my plan is to kill him? Although ground was too dry to get them this time, these guys have long thick tendrils growing parallel the ground.

This appears to be bermuda grass,a warm season ,drought tolerant grass that can quickly invade your lawn and flower beds. It will turn brown and go into dormancy as the first frost appears. To control it and prevent from taking over your lawn ,it should be sprayed with glyphosate (round up) in mid August and then interseeded with a turf type tall fescue blend 2 weeks later http://extension.umd.edu/sites/default/files/_images/programs/hgic/Publications/HG102%20Lawn%20Estab...
