Ask A Pro: Crabgrass ID and Recommendations

posted this on Mar 1, 2017

Recently we had one of our customers send an email to us asking for an ID on a weed growing on his lawn. Here's what he asked along with a image submission of his problem weed:


Submit your photo and we'll ID your plant or pest for you!


Can you id and suggest post-emer control in hybrid bermuda?  Thanks.




Our Answer:


Hi Michael. This appears to be crabgrass. It is best controlled by using Quinclorac which is a pre-emergent herbicide. Results my take 6 months to a year. You would need to apply now before spring and again mid May.

Another solution is to apply Glyphosate 4 or Eraser directly to the plant. This will provide immediate control within 2 to 7 days. However, when using this product, it can cause some burn to the bermuda.
All of these products are available on our website at solutionsstores.com.
Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Let us ID your weed or pest for you!


Sometimes it can be tough trying to identify a problem pest or weed on your own. They may be too small or so unique that you can't make it out. If you send us a picture of your problem pest or weed to identification@solutionsstores.com, we will reply back to you with the proper identification of your issue and give you suggestions and recommendations on the best method of control. Keep this in mind next time you encounter an issue, we're glad to help.
