Product Description

One of the best all-natural, all-purpose pest controls available, Grub-Away® Nematodes are an environmentally friendly, non-chemical solution to a wide range of lawn and garden problems. While they control many soil-dwelling pests, you can rest assured that they'll pose no threat to people, pets or plants. And they won't harm beneficial insects, either. Attacking many types of soil-dwelling pests, these microscopic worms kill White Grubs, Banana Moth Larvae, Bill Bugs, Black Vine Weevils, Citrus Root Weevils, Grape Root Borer, Japanese Beetle Larvae, Small Hive Beetles and Sod Webworms.

Our expert entomologists have done careful evaluations of their effectiveness in our research garden. Application rates vary depending on the type of pest in need of control, but in general, our entomologists recommend one package of 5 million nematodes will cover 200 sq. ft. of lawn and one package of 10 million nematodes will cover 400 sq. ft. of lawn. Only infested areas need to be spot treated; there is no need to treat non-infested areas.

Store Grub-Away in the refrigerator, then remove and let it come to room temperature before mixing and applying to the soil. Nematodes can be applied anytime the soil is not frozen, but become active at soil temperatures of 68 degrees or above. Early morning or evening applications are ideal, and the area to be treated should be watered before application and then watered again after application. Applying Grub-Away during a gentle rainfall is ideal. Nematodes are most active at controlling grubs in late summer to early fall. You'll only need one application per year (two, if your area suffers from long droughts). Once you apply it, look for the adult pest population to begin dwindling in 1-2 weeks. Grub-Away nematodes kill pests at the larval and pupa stages, so they'll prevent future pest populations once the adults die off.
