Prevent Grubs During Their Early Life Stages
Control Adult Beetles
A synthetic pyrethroid product, such as Talstar, is great for adult beetle control. Apply every 3-4 weeks during peak beetle seasons to maintain control.
Apply Preventative Treatments
- Since most grubs hatch in July and early August, it is best to apply your preventative product in mid-June to mid-July, so it can be in the soil before the eggs hatch.
- Products labeled for white grub control containing imidacloprid, like Merit, are great for preventative control.
