Is there an herbicide that won't kill native grasses/wildflowers?

Is there an herbicide (pre-/post-emergent) that I can use in poisoning common exotic, invasive grasses (i.e. barnyard grass, crab grass, Japanese stilt grass, etc.) that will not also poison native grasses (i.e. bentgrasses, bluestem grasses, blue fowl grass, etc.) or native wildflowers (many species?)

It's called spot spraying. Or you could resort to hand weeding.

No. Any plant poison that will kill what we consider "weed" grasses will also kill off what we consider the desirable grasses.
