    Q
    How much does one 30lb bag cover?
    I have approx. 30,000 sq.ft. of lawn and a MAJOR chinch bug problem. Can I use a Scott's Edge Guard Deluxe Broadcast Spreader? If yes, what setting (2-15)? How many 30 lb. bags do I need for the first round, and how many bags will I need for the second round 30 days later? Also, when is the best time of year to do these applications?
    A
    You will need roughly 60-80 lbs of Arena .25 Granules per year for your property. You can apply half now and the other half later. You can use whatever spreader you choose and you will need to check with the manufacturer to understand how to calibrate the spreader as every model is different. You should start applying Arena .25 Granules just before the chinch bugs become active in your region. Most people are able to recall what month they have noticed damage in the past and they start making application a couple of weeks before that. For more specific timing you should call your local cooperative extension office as they will be able to narrow down the timing in your area.

  • Asked by Geoffrey from Tamap, Fl

    Q
    Can you collaborate with the major manufacturers of the spreaders to determine the proper settings?
    What is the setting on X spreader? All the answers below say to refer to the manufacturer of the spreader. Asking Scotts does no good as they say Arena is not their product so they don't know the variables to determine what the setting would be. It would be more helpful to your customers to buy a few of the most popular spreaders and find out what the settings should be. There is an obvious need for that information that the manufacturers seem unable to help with.
    A
    We spoke with the manufacturer, Valent USA Corp on the proper settings using a Scotts Spreader using Arena .25 Granules.  You will want to set the speader setting at "I" or "J" to give you 80lb-100lb of product per acre depending on the pests you are treating. Please let us know if you have any further questions.

  • Asked by Lauri from South West Missouri
    06/08/2016
    Q
    How much Arena .25 Granules is needed for grubs, moles and neglected lawn?
    I have about an acre and we are trying to get rid of grubs to have the mole population in my yard move out. How much of this do we need? There may be other insect issues because the previous owner neglected the lawn
    A

    Per the Arena .25 Granules product label at a rate of 80 to 160 lbs per acre. Do not apply more than 160 lbs per acre per year. The Arena .25 Granules will only treat the grubs, but not the moles themselves. If you get rid of the grubs in your lawn that should eliminate the moles as that is their food source. You can also treat the moles with a product like Talprid Bait  or Giant Destroyer Smoke Bomb/Gasser.
