A. Yes, you can use this for lawns or ornamentals. It is not labeled for use over vegetable gardens or around fruit trees though.
Q. Can I apply if it looks like rain?
A. Yes. Grubs Away should be watered in with irrigation or rainfall within 24 hours of application to move the active ingredient through the soil. However, do not make applications when turfgrass areas are waterlogged or the soil is saturated with water.
Q. How does this product work?
A. Grubs Away is a systemic product and will be moved upward within the plant system. It has sufficient residual activity so that applications can be made preceding the egg laying activity of the target pest.
Apply as a broadcast application. For optimum control of grubs, billbugs, European crane fly and annual bluegrass weevil, apply as a broadcast application prior to egg hatch of the target pest.
Be sure to read APPLICATION EQUIPMENT and SPREADER SETTINGS sections of the GRUBS AWAY label.
For suppression of chinchbugs, broadcast apply prior to the hatching of the first instar nymphs.
For control of mole crickets make application prior to or during the peak egg hatch period. GRUBS AWAY is not effective against mole crickets if adult or large nymphs are present and actively tunneling. For large nymphs or actively tunneling mole crickets a remedial insecticide must be used. Consult your local State Agricultural Experiment Station, or State Extension Turf Specialists for more specific information regarding timing of application.
Follow with irrigation or rainfall within 24 hours after application to move the active ingredient through the thatch. Do not mow turf or lawn area until after irrigation or rainfall has occurred so that uniformity of application.
