I reseeded my lawn 4 weeks ago. Because the lawn was rather thin to start with there is quite a bit of weed starting to grow. I use Ortho Weed be Gone during the year. Is it to soon to apply weed killer now, or should I wait till spring.

You need to wait until you have mowed the new grass at least three times before you apply a herbicide. It is not likely that it will stay warm enough to apply a herbicide this fall. Herbicides work best in the fall. A liquid weed killer applied directly to the weeds is going to be more effective than a dry one. vw
