QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
Since the grubs are in the grass, can I use this on grass?
grubGONE! is more widely used (as a spreadable granular) for grubs feeding in the turf. However, beetleGONE! can be successfully used as well. Either method you choose, make sure to irrigate the area afterwards to deliver the active ingrediant into the root zone where the grubs are feeding.
For Turf Grub Control:
beetleGONE! tlc can also be used as a ground spray on your turf from spring to fall to control beetle larvae (grubs). Make
sure the mixed application gets irrigated into the root zone where the grubs are feeding. Mix as indicated above using 2
- 4 oz of beetleGONE! per gallon of water & spray the mixture over 1000 sqft.
How long before the beetles die after applying?
Typically from a few hours to a week. It depends on the species of beetle and also the dose of product ingested. This type of broad window is typical of biologicals. Once the targeted pest has ingested the product by feeding on the foliage (and active ingredient protein) feeding halts as the insects become sick from septicemia/ gut ulcers.
How often can I use Beetlegone?
Every 7 - 10 days
most effective treatment we've used for Japanese beetles on our apple trees
We've fought Japanese beetles on our apples trees - especially our HoneyCrisp - for a few years now, and have had very little luck in keeping them from de-foliaging the trees. This year we decided to try Beetlegone and it has been by far the most effective treatment we've used. It has totally eliminated the beetles on 3 of our trees, and we just applied a second treatment to our Honeycrisp and only found a few beetles. I couldn't be more satisfied with a product! We just ordered the GrubGone and hoping to eliminate the masses of beetles next year be killing the grubs - at least in our yard before they hatch. Our front yard has looked horrible from the grubs, so we have high hopes this will help. If you are on the fence about ordering - just do it! It is well worth the money! Thanks!
They fell like rain
My fences are covered in Virginia creeper, and the vines were covered in Japanese beetles last year (2021). I put 1/2 cup beetle gone and 1/4 cup fish fertilizer in my one gallon sprayer. They started falling just a few minutes later and continued to die for the next hour. It sounded like rain falling. I sprayed my front and back yards in July and there was no sign of beetles the rest of the year. This year there are very few beetles and I'm getting ready to spray again. I love this stuff.
This stuff did exactly what it said it would do. Beetle Gone!!!!!
Not so much!
I am sorry to report that after spending $80 on the BeetleGone, it simply didn't work. There was not clear instruction on how or how much to mix with water to form a spray. I mixed a goodly amount in some water and sprayed and sprayed. Beetles still on my roses in droves! Very disappointed!
So glad to find this!!
Japanese Beetles getting worse for us each year and we don’t want to spray toxic broad spectrum insecticides, especially because we keep bees. BeetleGone is very effective at keeping our plants safe from JB. So thankful to know about this great product.
