Metsulfuron. Won't hurt bermuda or bahaia grass.

I think the dupont brand is called Accent.

you will need to dig out the crabgrass and fill in the holes with soil. i did this last year and i do not have the problem this year.

Can you post pics of what these 2 weeds look like? I think I have a problem with one of the two in my yard as well.

Hit it with Scotts Weed and Feed and water it every other day for three weeks in a row.

ETA:
Mow, weed and feed, water. Raise your mower up to the second highest setting.

thanks. Yep, I've got that shite in my yard as well. Weed and Feed does not work on it in my experience.

I've investigated this for some time now......if the lawn is centipede or St. Aug, there is nothing you can do.

Choices are, dig up each clump of crabgrass and sod immediately or burn the lawn and start over.

Seriously. I am crazy about my lawn, started to get a couple of patches of crabgrass a few years ago. I called the LSU ag department and the composition of centipede and st. aug is so close to crabgrass that anything you spray will kill the grass too.

The only way to defeat crabgrass is to keep your lawn healthy and never let it take hold. Crabgrass comes in when you have an unhealthy lawn.

Its my understanding that if you apply a prevenative in the late winter this will prevent the crabgrass from gereminating

Plant St Aug runners. In 2-3 years the St Aug will take over. If you have the patience, this is your cheapest and easiest solution.

those professional lawn services literally come out there and brush paint it with round up OVER and OVER. The problem is that its got so many seeds, so you kill the active stuff, then the seeds bring it right back up. Digging it up w/ do it quicker, but painted round up over and over will do it too.
