Here it is the middle of April in Oklahoma and the crab grass is already up.I don't know if I have any bermuda grass left I can't see it.I used to have a great lawn until I had a lawn care company come in and treat it,then I got covered up in crab grass.How do I get rid of it now???

Try to encourage your good grass, you may need to overseed to get it to thicken up. Raise the height of you mower to the upper range that your grass can tolerate. That's 2 inches for species bermuda grass and 1 inch for cultivars (named varieties). Also, you can apply corn gluten meal over the lawn in spring to kill germinating crab grass. (too late for this year if yours is already up) This will also act as a nitrogen fertilizer. It's available from Gardens Alive Scroll down for more information.
