QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
What is the best time to apply this product
Hello, grubGONE! can be applied from spring to fall. However, summer application is recommended. Apply grubGONE! G during mid-summer (End of July / Beginning of August) to control newly hatched grub larvae that are in their first weeks of development. Apply within 2 - 3 weeks of peak flight of adult beetles.
Can this be used in a vegetable garden?
grubGONE! IS OMRI Certified and the label has language regarding application to ornamental landscapes. However, we recommend beetleGONE! to be used in vegetable gardens. beetleGONE! is a water dispersible powder that can be sprayed on foliage (include fruits and veggies) to control beetles. It can also be sprayed on the garden bed to control grubs beneth the surface. In addition, the dry powder can be mixed into the soil to control grubs.
I have Scotts Turf Builder Handheld Spreader. I am unable to read small print on GrubGone pkg. What setting shall I use to apply product? Ready to apply now.
For Scotts® Hand-Held Spreaders (manual models) we recommend a setting of 3. For all spreaders the goal is to find a setting that allows product to distribute evenly. We also recommend applying grubGONE! at a rate of 3 LBS / 1000 sqft for best results. Then irrigate the product into the root zone where the grubs are feeding. Thanks for the inquiry.
After i apply grubgone do I water the yard or Water before application? Or no watering at all? The print is so small on the bag I am having problems reading the instructions.
Sprinkler irrigation of 1/2 inch or moderate rainfall shortly after application is required to move the active ingredient into the root zone of the turf where the annual white grubs feed. If you need further assistance or would like a spreader settings & application guide please email email@example.com Thank you!
How do you apply to lawn in spring? Do you need a spreader? If so, does it need to have different settings? And how much of the product do you need per sf?
Yes, apply with a spreader. 2.5-3 LB per sqft is recommended. More info on spreader settings can be found here:
Did Not Realize Until after the Fact Product Application with Soil Temp >/= 50 degrees
I was disappointed because obviously it did not work as i applied when soil temps were <50 degrees. The product was ordered and sent in early / mid March. I was planting plants recently and found a TON of grubs; while digging. It would have been nice if there had been some sort of note indicating very clearly to wait until soil temps were above 50.
Great so far. I would recommend. Very nice people to work with. :)
I began using the product in the spring of 2019 to reduce the moths in my lawns. Our neighborhood began seeing Japanese beetles the same year. I applied the product in the fall 2019 as well as spring 2020. The Japanese beetles are back. The results of using the product has definitely improved the health of the lawns. Our lawns are full and green compared to others that appear in stress.
works well for my dogs but...
Hard to measure 1/2 packet and 3/4 packet (for my dogs...prescribed by vet) since there is no labeling about how much is in each packet
Works well so far!
We just started using it, so we'll see how it goes. It does seem to have improved some problem areas already. I only wish the bags were bigger, so they last longer. I hope this helps combat the grubs in our lawn. We've just been spot treating the areas that have damage. Glad this is safe for birds, earthworms, bees, and wildlife!
