    Excellent All-season Grub Control

    By Prestonbroadmore11 on 05/31/2014

    Shh- I was recommended this brand over the Scott's brand for grub control from a Scott's sales rep checking product stock at my local Lowes. Excellent grub control for season long use and excellent surface insect control. I have my yard professionally core aerated at the end of May and time the application of this product at the same time. This product not only kills insects but comes with turf builder too. Once applied let it sit for 24 hours then water in. Take a sprinkler and a regular coffee cup and let the sprinkler run until half the coffee cup is filled with water. That way you know you watered it in correctly.

    Used as a bordering repellent

    By Anonymous on 06/26/2013

    Verified Purchase

    I tried multiple liquid insect/flea control products, but since I live in Florida it's challenging to find something that's effective to stand up to the brutal temperatures & Summer rains. I got these granules to put around the border of our back porch to keep the fleas/insects from getting on us. (We don't have any pets.) I followed the instructions & it seemed to work fairly well until the heavy rains came & washed them out. In this case I have to reapply. Still, at about $25 a 10 lb.bag vs. $30+ for an ineffective liquid it seems to be my only alternative. I imagine it will be more effective when the Summer rains subside.

    Controls fleas effectively

    By C on 03/25/2014

    I have used this product for 2 years in the summer months. It effectively controls the flea outdoors. Our neighborhood is home to numerous feral cats and there are about 8 the come to my back yard that I feed. Before I used this product, I could literally see the fleas hopping from the ground, walkways and all over the outside of my house. At one time, I look down on my bare legs and literally had dozens climbing up my legs. that sent shivers down my spine. I decided to try the Bayer Complete Insect Killer that year and behold, after a couple of days, all the fleas were pretty much gone. even the oudoor feral cats were scratching less. I've been using this produce in the hot summer months and it has been a success. I live in California where the summers are dry so I don't have to reapply.

    Killed 'ed them dead

    By Kenneth on 06/15/2018

    After calibrating my Even Spread rotary, the product dispensed evenly and cleanly. I haven't seen any grub damage either in sod lifted (racoons looking for a meal) or dead spots. I put it down the last few days of May so I am hoping for protection through August when I may have to refresh the application or use Sevin in early September. My suggestion on calibration is to use a kitchen scale (by one for your garden use-don't take from your kitchen) and load the recommended amount for 1,000 sq ft. Lay out a 1,000 foot plot on your lawn. In my case it was 1lb. Set your spreader a little bit below the recommended amount so you don't run out. When done, tweak the spreader so you have the proper application for this product.

Q
Will the Bayer Advanced Complete Insect Killer for Soil & Turf kill Cicada Killer Wasps and their larva?
A

The Bayer Advanced Complete Insect Killer for Soil & Turf is a granule product and is not labeled for anytime of flying insects.

Cicada Killer wasps thrive in disturbed environments, such as landscaped yards and places where bare soil is exposed. You can discourage the wasps from nesting in your yard by cutting your grass on the highest setting and by adding a thick layer of mulch to flower beds during the Cicada Killer Wasp season. These wasps do not like over saturated lawns either, so over watering during their season will help prevent them. Unfortunately, there is no fool proof way to prevent cicada killer wasps.For prevention you can try to use a granular insecticide such as Talstar PL  Granules in the couple of weeks before this pest is known to emerge. For current infestations, you would need to use Delta dust in each individual burrow.


We also like to let our customers know that the Cicada Killer wasps are beneficial insects that provide free pest control for a couple months each year. Cicada killer wasps paralyze and provision their burrows with other insects to feed their young.  The beneficial Cicada killer wasps, while large and intimidating to see, are mostly harmless and there have been very few reports of anyone getting stung by just being near them. In most cases where a sting was reported, the wasps were being held or molested in some way. Cicada Killer Wasp stings are also reported to be almost painless.
