    Q
    What is the setting for a broadcast spreader?
    A
    We don't have the exact spreader setting for your model spreader. The easiest way to determine the correct setting for your needs is outlined below:

    If you need to use 3lbs of product per 1,00 sq ft you would  add 3 lb of product to spreader, start with a medium setting, then apply product to a 20 x 50 ft area (1,000 sq ft).  If you have product left, your setting is too low.  If you run out of product, your setting is too high.  Typically if you walk at a normal pace and set the spreader at the middle setting, that is usually the right amount per 1000 square feet.

    Q
    does the use of dylox on your lawn help drive away moles?
    A
    Using Dylox will not directly get rid of your moles. When you have mold activity in your yard it can in part be due to a plentiful food supply. Moles will feed on grubs, worms and other similar insects living in your turf. Many people in conjunction with using products designed to either trap, kill, or repel moles, will use a product like Dylox to kill the grubs and insects the moles are feeding on. By removing their food source it helps deter them from your yard. For full information on how to eradicate moles from your residence, see our section on Mole Control.

    Q
    Is it okay to use both Merit and Dylox since Merit is slow and long lasting while Dylox is fast and short live
    I live in Massachusetts and just found out about your website and products Merit and Dylox.
    A
    Yes, you may use Merit Granules and Dylox 6.2 Granules at the same time. Per manufacturer instructions, apply according to application rates on label. Since Dylox 6.2 is a quick kill and only to be used when you see activity, apply this granule first. Wait 7 days to apply the Merit. Dylox 6.2 is restricted to only be applied 3 times per year.

    Q
    What is difference between Dylox 6.2 and Milky Spore?
    Which is a better option for killing and controlling grubs
    A

    Dylox is used as a curative for grubs. It is only active for 48 hours. The active ingredient is Trichlorfon. Milky Spore will last in the soil for up to 10 years. This is a natural product made out of grub spores. 

    We would recommend using Milky Spore if you are wanting long term control. This needs to be applied 6 times a year for two years.

  • Asked by Jerry from Warwick,ri
    03/25/2014
    Q
    I live in the Northeast. If I apply Dylox.6.2 in the spring, will it last the entire season?
    A
    Dylox is formulated to provide a quick kill of the grubs that are actively feeding and then the product degrades quickly. This means that repeat treatments would be necessary. Dylox is the product of chocie if you are currently seeing turf damage (this usually occurs from July-September depending on the type of grubs you have).  Arena Granules, Merit Granules or Dominion 2L will work well as a preventative if applied prior to egg hatch. You should check with your local cooperative extension office and speak to the master gardener on staff to establish the best time to put down a preventative treatment in your region.

    Q
    We used a broadcast spreader to apply a grub control product which contained Dylox.
    It is possible that some of the granules landed on green pepper plants in the garden. The product was applied on a Friday, but good drenching rain did not occur until Monday. Are the green peppers edible or were they contaminated for human consumption?
    A
    We recommend that you discard the the green peppers and contact the manufacturer for additional information. They can be reached at 800-331-2867.

    Q
    Will I benefit from a second application of Dylox 6.2 Granules?
    had active grubs and damage in september, did merit then 1 week later Dylox. Good rain fall following.Aerated, detached and reseeded..It is now october
    A

    Dylox 6.2 Granules are only active and kill for 48 hours, so grubs also need to be active in the area at the time of application. It starts working immediately after irrigation or rainfall. For best results, the product should be watered in for at least 1 to 1/5 hours after application to ensure the product make it through the thatch layer to where the grubs are feedings. Mature grubs usually require at least 2 applications, 3 to 4 days apart.

  • Asked by Jon from Fairfield, Ct

    Q
    Can Dylox be applied over mulch?
    I have a mulched garden bed, there was grub activity when I first planted it in the spring. I am looking for a product that will penetrate the mulch. A general purpose insecticide would also be valuable as well that can penetrate mulch.
    A

    Dylox 6.2 Granules - 30lb. bag would not penetrate through mulch and would need to be heavily watered in to get down to the soil below it or you can rake the mulch back before applying Dylox and watering in, then move it back.

    04/04/2015
    Q
    Is Dylox 6.2 Granules safe for vegetables and fruit trees?
    A
    We apologize but you would not want to use Dylox granules in a vegetable garden or around fruit trees as it is not labeled for use in those areas, and also because this is for quick 24 hour knock down of grubs in a lawn primarily. Depending on the pest you are trying to treat for would depend on what product would be a better recommendation for you.
