Grubs can make quick work of ruining your lawn, and the beetles they grow into can destroy edible and ornamental crops. Before you know it, what was thick, beautiful, green grass becomes filled with dry, brown patches that lift up with little to no effort. Then you may see a lacey effect on the leaves of fruit, veggie and ornamentals. If you notice these symptoms, grubs (and the beetles they grow into) are to blame. Don't let them win—use Grub-Away® Nematodes.
What are Nematodes? Nematodes are microscopic, beneficial predatory worms that hunt down and kill pest insects but pose no threat to people, pets or plants. They won't harm beneficial insects, either. They're an environmentally friendly, non-chemical solution to get rid of grubs and many other soil-dwelling pests.
Application Rates. 5 million nematodes will cover 200 sq. ft; 10 million nematodes will cover 400 sq. ft. Reduce coverage area by half for heavy infestations. Only infested areas need to be spot treated, and it's a good idea to extend treatment a couple of feet beyond the infested area. There is no need to treat non-infested areas as grubs tend to return to the same area year after year.
Pests Controlled. There are a variety of beneficial nematodes, and while more than one type can control several of the same pest insects, some nematode varieties are better suited for controlling certain pests. Grub-Away Nematodes are best at controlling the soil-dwelling pests that destroy lawns and turf--in particular the larvae of Japanese Beetles. When the larvae are eliminated, it removes the chance for them to grow into the adult beetles that destroy vegetable, fruit and ornamental crops. With the larvae and the adult beetle population in check, you also eliminate the need for sprays. Grub-Away Nematodes also control: White Grubs, Banana Moth Larvae, Bill Bugs, Black Vine Weevils, Citrus Root Weevils, Grape Root Borers, Small Hive Beetles and Sod Webworms. (Grub-Away Nematodes are best suited for pests in bold.)
Nematodes are packaged with diatomaceous earth (which is mostly silica), water, and potassium sorbate.
