In Wisconsin, crabgrass herbicide should be applied in early spring before the seeds start to germinate. Apply the herbicide in April, as long as the snow is gone and the grass is starting to turn green. You do not need to treat the entire lawn, only the locations where you had crabgrass the year before in fall.
