It is a violation of Federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.
Do not apply this product in a way that will contact any person or pet, either directly or through drift. Keep people and pets out of the area during application. Do not allow people or pets to enter the treated area until sprays have dried.

For home lawn care:
Spectracide® Weed Stop® For Lawns Plus Crabgrass Killer is a ready-to-use (RTU) product intended for “spot” treatment of individual broadleaf and grass weeds by homeowners on residential lawns. This product should be applied to lawns containing the following species of grass: Kentucky bluegrass, perennial ryegrass, fescue species (including tall, red and fine leaf varieties), Bermudagrass*, buffalograss and zoysiagrass.
*Application to Bermudagrass may cause temporary yellowing or discoloration but full recovery can be expected. Do not apply to Bermudagrass when daytime temperatures exceed 85˚F.

Spectracide Weed Stop For Lawns Plus Crabgrass Killer should not be used on lawns containing bentgrass, St. Augustinegrass, bahiagrass, centipedegrass or carpetgrass. Do not use on dichondra, lawns with desirable clovers or legumes, vegetable gardens, fruits or ornamentals (flowers, trees, groundcovers, hedges, landscape/flower beds and shrubs).

This 1 gal retail container size treats approximately 1,000 weeds or up to 1,000 sq ft. 

This 32 fl oz retail container size treats approximately 250 weeds or up to 250 sq ft. 

1 Gallon container

  1. Shake well before each use.
  2. Peel sticker from flip-top cap and open cap. Discard sticker.
  3. Remove sprayer from its slot beneath the bottle handle and remove and discard plastic wrap. Pull black hose tip to completely extend tubing.
  4. Firmly press black hose tip into opening in cap until it snaps into place.
  5. Hold sprayer below the level of the container and prime by pumping trigger several times until product is dispensed.
  6. Adjust nozzle to desired setting.
  1. To store, turn sprayer nozzle off.
  2. DO NOT disconnect hose.
  3. Return sprayer to its slot. Hose can be pushed back into sprayer handle.

32 fl oz container

  1. Shake well.
  2. Adjust nozzle to coarse spray pattern to minimize wind drift.
  3. Spray just enough Spectracide® Weed Stop® For Lawns Plus Crabgrass Killer to lightly cover grass and broadleaf weeds. Excessive spraying can injure some lawns. Do not apply when daytime temperatures are above 90°F as lawn injury can occur. Spray only the weeds, not the entire lawn.
  4. Weeds will begin wilting and browning overnight.

  • Some hard-to-kill weeds may require re-treatment. Wait at least 30 days between applications — some weeds can take that long to die.
  • Rainproof — rain or watering three hours after application will not wash away effectiveness. If rainfall occurs within three hours of application, the product should be reapplied.
  • Do not allow spray to drift onto desirable plants since injury may result.
Do not contaminate water, food, or feed by storage and disposal.
PESTICIDE STORAGE: Turn the nozzle to "OFF" position and store with sprayer above the level of liquid in container to prevent leakage. Store in original container in an area inaccessible to children and pets.
PESTICIDE DISPOSAL AND CONTAINER HANDLING: Nonrefillable container. Do not reuse or refill this container. If empty: Place in trash or offer for recycling if available. If partly filled: Call your local solid waste agency for disposal instructions. Never place unused product down any indoor or outdoor drain.
