You can use Spectracide Weed Stop for Lawns Crabgrass Preventer & Broadleaf Weed Killer Granules if you have children, but you'll want to make sure the treated area is completely dry before allowing them to use it. You should not use this product on vegetables -- it's just for use on listed lawn types.

The damage you're seeing is likely a combination of applying to new sod that has not yet established roots and applying to floratam St. Augustinegrass at all. Both are restrictions for use listed on the bag.

It's too late to use as a crabgrass pre-emergent, but the granules will still kill established crabgrass. You should not apply in very dry conditions, though. Water before treating if necessary. In your area, we also recommend making a second application in six to eight weeks for best crabgrass control.

Question

Can you use this product on hybrid Bermudagrass (sodded)

Bermuda sod was laid in my yard. I know it is Bermudagrass, and am assuming it is hybrid due to the very thin blades and the fact it was laid with sod. It is starting to be inundated with weeds. I didn't use a pre-emergent and need to kill existing weeds, but am concerned about harming the grass.

Question

Product shelf life

Last year we applied Spectracide Weed Stop granules with great results, in 2 weeks all the weeds were gone. This year we applied it 17 days ago and the weeds are still actively growing. We used a leftover, unopened bag from last year that has been sitting in the garage. We also had a cold snap for a few days, night time temps dipped into the 30s, daytime 50s and 60s. Could use of an older bag or lower night time temps affect the performance of Weed Stop? Can we re-apply? How long should we wait?

Using an older bag doesn't matter, but the cooler nighttime temperatures is likely slowing down your results. Please give it a few more days and let us know what kind of results you're getting. In your area, we advise you to make a second application six weeks after the first anyway, but if you're not getting weed kill in a week or so, we will likely recommend that you apply again.

Question

It rained within 24 hr. Does that adversely affect the preemergent portion or just the weed killer?

Missouri weather can be quite unpredictable. We had some brief showers (not in the forecast) about 18-20 hrs after application. 7 days later, the weeds look fine and are beginning to flower. Do I need to reapply this product or can I use the hose end sprayer with weed stop only, no crabgrass preventer? And how long does the preemergent last?

It likely washed off, and you probably need to reapply. We recommend using this product again if you're not seeing results from your first application. The granules will prevent crabgrass from germinating for up to 5 months.

Question

Did I apply too early? I'm in Maryland, and I don't see dandelions around yet and the weeds in my yard still look dormant.

I went by the recommendation of the person who sold it to me at the garden store, but he also told me I could overseed 48 hours after application (which I now see was incorrect), so I'm worried that his recommendation about timing was wrong as well. I see some dandelion greens but just barely, definitely no flowers, and none of the other weeds in my lawn have really become active. Will I need to reapply later? If so, when? Will it still work to prevent crabgrass from returning even if it was applied to early to kill the broadleaf weeds?

Oh no! Right, you'll need to wait at least 10 weeks before overseeding after using this product. It might have been a little early, but you will still benefit from the pre-emergent. If you're seeing a lot of weeds in your lawn in four to six weeks, apply again (or use one of our lawn broadleaf weed killers, which have shorter waiting periods before seeding).
