They have 10's of thousands of customers to take care of. Most lawn care companies if they could would be out in Feb. throwing fertilizer done to add profit.

Crabgrass germinates when soil temps hit 60 degrees for 7-10 day (Purdue University study) Soil temps in northern Illinois have averaged 55.2 and have hit 60 once this past week.
