Q.Which Grub Worm Control Is Best for Fall Treatment?

Zone ???? | Frank Burdette added on September 16, 2013 | Answered

For the last 3 – 4 years I have had a grub worm/Japanese beetle problem that I have always treated in the spring. However, I just read that it is best to treat the problem in the fall as opposed to spring and/or summer. Do you agree? I also see that Bayer Grub Control and Milky Spore are both recommended. Which do you think is best or is there something better?

Thank you.

A herd of skunks would be the most economical, but would also be the most "fragrant"! (Skunks love grubs...but leave holes in your lawn!)
Having used neither product, I wouldn't be helpful in suggesting a preference. Milky Spore is organic, and treats a large area. Which ever product you chose, read and follow package directions. Remember,killing the grubs in your lawn is no guarantee that beetles from elsewhere won't fly in.
