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
the smell of this product isn't good.
This product worked well. We did have to do an additional treatment for real effective results, but will highly recommend it to my gardening friends.
I had a major infestation on my grape vines loaded with St Theresa grapes. I mixed the ingredients and sprayed. I took a couple of sprays but after a few days I started seeing dead beetles for several days! I also tried it on blister beetle but did not have the same success with them. So I am 50/50 on beetles this summer.
Spray was mixed and applied exactly according to directions. Sadly, Beetle Gone has had a negligible effect on the infestation of Japanese Beetles in our hobby vineyard. I am especially disappointed because this product came highly recommended as an organic alternative to chemical sprays - but apparently I wasted my money.
Jury is still out
Japanese beetles have been here for almost three weeks. They love my grapevine. This product kills the beetles if it is directly sprayed on them, but they return. Removing the plant's beetles' love and using Grub b Gone might be better. I will try on other plants to see if it makes a difference. I am glad the beetles were late this year!
