Crabgrass is an annual grass so it will die out at the end of the summer. Sadly, though, it will leave behind lots of seeds which will sprout up next spring. At this point, I'd suggest raking and pulling out as much of the crabgrass as you can, then reseeding the bare areas. In late fall apply a winterizer type fertilizer to help your lawn get through the winter months. In the spring use a pre emergent herbicide (such as Scotts with Halts) to keep crabgrass from sprouting. You can trap the moles with scissors types traps. Hope this information helps!
