Imidacloprid 0.5G Insecticide is a systemic insecticide that effectively targets and controls soil-inhabiting pests. Containing the same active ingredient in Merit 0.5 G Insecticide Granules, it is used to eliminate soil insects and termites. Quali-Pro’s Imidacloprid 0.5G granular insecticide kills larvae, nymphs, and adult pests on turfgrass, landscapes, parks, playgrounds, airports, trees, and golf courses. This powerful insecticide targets pests like Northern masked chafer, Japanese beetle, European chafer, and green June beetle. It has an excellent residual activity so it features low use rates and flexible application. May also be used to suppress cutworms and chinch bugs and broadcast application on ornamentals.

Noticed the atypical brown patches starting in areas of my lawn and suspected I was dealing with white grubs, as I experienced the same issue last year which almost took out the entire half of my front lawn after using a different product with a different ingredient that didn't do diddly-squat against grubs, even though it stated on the label it killed them. Did some research and discovered that Imidacloprid is the most effective pesticide for eradicating these nasty little buggers. There was a disclaimer on this product's page that said it would take 5 days before it shipped but I didn't mind and placed my order. Surprisingly enough, I received an email from DMO later that day informing me my order had shipped! Happy day! Got my order in 2 days with no damage to the package. Products is fresh and bag is nicely sealed. The application directions on the back do not include every spreader but enough information is there for one to make an informed decision. For those interested: My front yard is about 5,500 sq ft. and I have a Scotts EdgeGuard Mini spreader. Based on the info provided on the bag, I decided to set my spreader to a happy medium of 3.5 and applied this product on a partly sunny day with temps in the low 80's after I mowed my grass. Product is small granules, very easy to apply, with no strong, obnoxious odor. My bag had no dust so stray particulate blowing in the wind (or my lungs) was not an issue. Had to wait until the next morning to water in due to water restrictions in my county but no harm was done to my grass in the meantime. Within a week, I noticed there were no more brown patches showing up in my lawn, even though I know Imidacloprid is a systemic and usually takes a few weeks to thoroughly move through a plant. Not complaining! As of today, my lawn is recovering nicely and I have this product to thank for putting a stop to those disgusting little grubs feasting on my grass.
"Treatment of Elm Leaf Beetle" is the inquiry to Google, and this product comes up. After purchase, and speaking to a DoItMyself representative who stated that he was not Google, it was determined that this is not a product for treatment of elm leaf beetle. A WASTE OF MONEY
