    Q
    Is Caravan G Insecticide Fungicide safe on st augustine grass in Texas?
    i have grubs and brown patch. will this help?
    A
    Caravan G is save for use on all lawns incuding St Augustine. While this will certainly help with the brown patch, it likely will not give you control over your grubs as this is the wrong season to treat for them. Grubs should be treated for May through June and sometimes into July. This time of year the grubs are going to not be feeding on the lawn as much and are in a life stage that is harder to control before they go deeper in the ground for the winter. While it may help with some of the population of the grubs while treating your brown patch, it will not give full control in the lawn. We recommend doing another application around the beginning of May to try and kill them before they emerge.

    Q
    Can Caravan G cause burnout of grass, especially if it is not dissolved?
    A few patches of my sod look dead - The Caravan did not dissolve in these areas.
    A

    It is possible for any insecticide, herbicide, or fertilizer such as Caravan G to cause slight burning on turf if the product is not watered in as directed. This risk is higher under the added stress of high temperatures and drought during the Summer. Many turf diseases can cause the same appearance as burning, as well. Be sure to take necessary measures to keep the turf healthy, such as ample watering. Applications are best made in the early morning, when the turf is most recovered from any stress.

  • Asked by Russell from Alabaster, Al

    Q
    If I’m applying Caravan G for grub control in April or May, will I need to make another application later?
    A
    The Caravan G may need to be reapplied around July to help catch all cycles of grubs that can emerge or feed below the soil since there are several each year. You may want to consult with your counties extension office program to find out details on when grubs and the life cycles usually hatch in your area.  The Caravan G Product Label states: To help prevent white grubs, apply Caravan G up to 45 days before the historical peak of adult flight for the targeted species. Irrigate within seven (7) days of application to move Caravan G into the root zone where grubs feed. To control white grubs, apply Caravan G from egg hatch to 2nd instar. For optimum white grub control, apply Caravan G from peak adult flight through egg hatch of the primary species being targeted. Irrigate within one (1) day of application to move Caravan G into the root zone where grubs feed. Maintain adequate soil moisture before and after application for optimum control and healthy turfgrass growth. Excessively wet or dry conditions may impact the performance of Caravan G against white grubs and mole crickets. Do not mow the turf until the treated area has been irrigated or rainfall has occurred to allow for maximum and uniform uptake into the turfgrass or soil.

  • Asked by Matan from Tx
    03/12/2021
    Q
    Is Caravan G Insecticide Fungicide good against Armyworms (Prodenia) too?
    A

    Caravan G Insecticide Fungicide is not labeled for treating army worms.  Talstar P is the most popular choice for army worm control. You should spray later in the evening when the worms are most active. You will continue to see moths, but it is only the actual worm that causes damage. The Talstar P product label recommends:

    "To ensure optimum control, delay watering (irrigation) or mowing for 24 hours after application. If the grass area is being maintained at a mowing height of greater than 1 inch, then higher application rates (Up to 1 fluid oz. per 1000 square feet) may be required during periods of high pest pressure"
