The best control is achieved by using a weed control product that contains glyphosate. Now would be the best time to spray to control Centipede. Unfortunately, glyphosate is a non selective weed control and will kill both the desired and undesired grasses. Therefore, the area will need to be reseeded. I will state that there is a possibility that some of the Centipede will survive and start growing again in the spring. Although it is not as effective, a broadleaf weed control that contains 2, 4-D will damage or even kill Centipede grass. It is best applied in late spring/early summer when the Centipede breaks dormancy and starts growing again.
