I've had success with Ortho Weed-B-Gon Crabgrass Killer, Concentrate.
Just have to note, I have to spray more than once for larger plants,
and it generallly isn't a spray once and forget product.
I like it cause it does no visible damage to my yard, and kills the

BTW, I just picked up Bayer Advanced Weed Killer for Lawns. It
claimes to work as a broad leaf weed killer, and a crab grass killer.
I'll be trying it out soon. I'll post my findings.

ps. Be careful using post emergent crabgrass killer in hot weather (above
84F) and also on drought stressed turfgrass. You can burn your desirables
....also, crabgrass will die on its own this fall.
Yup, crabgrass is an annual, so you might not want to bother with it this summer
so late in the year.
There is a new spray out there - Drive - somewhat expensive and available only
in larger quantities. I think I paid about $100 or so
for a quart sized jar. You use very little of the powder, however - I think
about 1/3 oz per 4 gallons spray. It works very well -
single application. ...will yellow the grass somewhat, particularly if you get
too much on. I've used it for the last 2 years on my
bermuda with very good success.

Drive 75 DF (75% Quinclorac) is $40 for a 1.5oz bottle of dry concentrate
(plus shipping), which will treat 5000 sq ft. Whoa. Ya, you gotta want it
gone really bad this time of year, to drop that kinda green! But, I guess
if he's getting it for $100 a quart, that's a pretty damn good deal. =)
-Buy one for the price of two and get the second one free!
Since it is an annual I will probably wait. I had beautiful grass this
year, no crabgrass to be see until a few weeks ago. Then it grew and
took over so fast it was hard to believe. It now is probably 50% of my
rear lawn. What do I do next year to prevent it?
