A Solution To The Problem Of Crabgrass
Once Crabgrass gets foothold in your lawn it can be
difficult to fend off (even with the best pre-emergent control products!)
However it can be done! Here
is what we recommend!
The first step is to purchase our Crabgrass
Killer! This chemical is formulated to specifically attack
the roots of crabgrass! It is a
Post-emergence control for grassy weeds in Bermuda, zoysia and bluegrass lawns.
It kills crabgrass, sandbur, dallisgrass, johnsongrass, goosegrass,
barnyardgrass and more.
This concentrate and will cover up to 4,000 square feet!
For Blue Grass mix 2 oz (4 tablespoons) in 1 gallon of water to cover 200
sq. ft. Spot treat the areas that are infested with crabgrass.
The second step is critical for optimal application --
always mix a "Spreader Sticker" with the weed killing chemical.
The "spreader sticker" we recommend is called Wilt
Pruf. Mixing a spreader sticker (1 oz. per gallon) with a weed
killer will ensure the chemical spreads over the entire foliage area and then
sticks! As an added benefit, it
will keep an application from washing off during an unexpected spring rain
The weed should begin to wilt and brown within 5 days --
spot treat as needed every two weeks until you have killed off that nasty
crabgrass! It should not take more than 2-3 applications to wipe out event he
most mature crabgrass.
A couple of other notes: For best results, apply Crabgrass
Killer to the lawn in the morning (after dew has dried) on a sunny, calm day to
allow maximum absorption of the weed killer.
Higher temperatures result in a quicker uptake of this product for faster
control. However, do not apply
Crabgrass Killer if temperatures exceed 90 degrees. If daytime temperatures are
expected to exceed 90 degrees, apply the product in early morning when it is
The combination of these two products will take care of
your weed problem!

mph, dart between raindrops and even fly backwards. Most live and
die close to where they hatch, but some are strong flyers that travel
many miles in search of a victim.
mosquitoes bite. They require a blood meal in order
to develop eggs to make more mosquitoes. Most female
mosquitoes lay their eggs on standing water.
Stagnant ponds, ditches and fresh or salt water wetlands are
favorites, but even a few tablespoons of water in a flower pot
or old auto tire will do. The eggs hatch, become swimming
larvae, then pupae and finally flying adults. Mosquito

bats and other animals. To reduce Mosquito infestation we
