    By Canman on 01/19/2015

    I tried this for Crabgrass and it did very little. Too weak when mixed according to label.

    Monterey Crab-E-Rad Plus.

    By Thomas on 11/09/2021

    I have retired from a lawn business and never had a post emergence crabgrass control at that time. I applied Crab-E- plus with great results. it did take several weeks but it looked like maybe it wouldn't. after several mowing, it was gone and so far months later, no sign of it. we have accepted it as our treatment for crab grass, nut sewage as well for other weeds for our hoa lawns. give it time.

    Waste of Money

    By Kenneth on 08/13/2020

    Verified Purchase

    It looked like it was going to work. The crab grass started to turn brown but it just slowed it down then its all back. I followed the instructions on the label. I spent hard earned money for this stuff that did not work. A refund should be in order from DoMyOwn...........
