Winter ryegrass will die out when the temperatures start to get warm - usually in March. Using a pre-emergent on your lawn will stop any weed or grass seeds from germinating but should not affect the ryegrass. However, if you plan to overseed your lawn this spring, you should not use a pre-emergent on it now. Hope this answers your question!
