I live in South Louisiana and St. Aug will normally take over anything…but for some reason I now seem to have a growing section of my lawn with centipede. I sodded with Palmetto St. Aug a little over 6 years ago and the lawn has been superb. But I noticed last summer that a patch maybe 15′ x 15′ was slightly different with more narrow blades. That area has gotten larger by this spring and I now realize it’s centipede. I have no clue how it got here…my only thought is that the grass company from which I bought the sod had mistakenly dropped a pallet with more than a few centipede squares on it (and I just didn’t notice) and for some reason the St. Aug didn’t choke it out and it has now spread.
So the question is…is there any type of product available that can kill the centipede but leave the St. Aug unscathed? Am I stuck with scraping up the centipede and re-sodding the area infected?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions you can provide!

Unfortunately, there are no products(that i have seen or heard of) that will selectivly control the Centipede in the St Augustine.
