DIRECTIONS FOR USE

APPLICATION TO TURFGRASS

GRUBS AWAY can be used for the control of the following listed soil inhabiting pests of turfgrass: Northern & Southern masked chafers, cyclocephala borealis, C. immaculata, and/or C.lurida; Asiatic garden beetle, maladera castanea; European chafer, Rhizotrogus majalis; Green June beetle, Cotinis nitida; May or June beetles, phyllophaga spp.; Black turfgrass ataenius, ataenius spretulus; aphodius spp; European Crane Fly Tipula paludosa; and Mole crickets, Scapteriscus spp. GRUBS AWAY can also be used for the suppression of cutworms and chinchbugs in turfgrass areas. Use GRUBS AWAY as directed in sites such as home lawns, business and office complexes, shopping complexes, multi-family residential complexes, golf courses, airports, cemeteries, parks, playgrounds, and athletic fields.

The active ingredient in GRUBS AWAY has sufficient residual activity so that applications can be made preceding the egg laying activity of the target pests. High levels of control can be achieved when applications are made preceding or during the egg laying period. The need for an application can be based on historical monitoring of the site, previous records or experiences, current season adult trapping or other methods. Optimum control will be achieved when applications are made prior to egg hatch of the target pest, followed by sufficient irrigation or rainfall to move the active ingredient through the thatch. Do not make applications when turfgrass areas are waterlogged or the soil is saturated with water. Adaquate distribution of the active ingredient cannot be achieved when turfgrass areas are waterlogged or the soil is saturaded with water. Adaquate distribution of the active ingredient cannot be achieved when these conditions exist. The treated turf must be in such a condition that the rainfall or irrigation will penetrate vertically in the soil profile.

Restrictions: Do not use GRUBS AWAY on commercial sod farms. Do not apply more than 80 lb (0.4 lb of active ingredient) per acre per year.

APPLICATION TO ORNAMENTALS

Apply GRUBS AWAY as a broadcast application on ornamentals in commercial and residential landscapes. GRUBS AWAY is systemic product and will be translocated upward within the plant system. Optimum control will be achieved when applications are followed by sufficient mechanical incorporation, irrigation or rainfall to move the active ingredient into the soil. Make applications prior to anticipated pest infestation to achieve optimum levels of control. Note: GRUBS AWAY can be used on plants intended for aesthetic purposes or climatic modification and being grown in interior plantscapes, ornamental gardens or parks, or on golf courses or lawns and grounds.

Restrictions: Do not use on commercial greenhouses, nurseries, on sod farms or on sod farms or on grass grown for seed. Do not apply more than 80 lb (0.4 lb of active ingredient) per acre per year.

APPLICATION EQUIPMENT

Apply GRUBS AWAY uniformly over the area being treated with normally used granular application equipment. Both drop-type and rotary-type spreaders may be used to apply GRUBS AWAY. Do not use of spreaders which would apply the material in concentrated bands. Calibrate application equipment prior to use according to the manufacturer's directions. Check frequently to be sure equipment is working properly and distributing granules uniformly and accurately.

Be sure to read APPLICATION EQUIPMENT and SPREADER SETTINGS sections of the GRUBS AWAY label.

For suppression of chinchbugs, broadcast apply prior to the hatching of the first instar nymphs.

For control of mole crickets make application prior to or during the peak egg hatch period. GRUBS AWAY is not effective against mole crickets if adult or large nymphs are present and actively tunneling. For large nymphs or actively tunneling mole crickets a remedial insecticide must be used. Consult your local State Agricultural Experiment Station, or State Extension Turf Specialists for more specific information regarding timing of application.

Follow with irrigation or rainfall within 24 hours after application to move the active ingredient through the thatch. Do not mow turf or lawn area until after irrigation or rainfall has occurred so that uniformity of application.

Questions & Answers

Have a question about this product?
  
Q
Is the Grubs Away Insecticide NOT effective certain months of the year?
A

Grubs Away Insecticide is most effective when grass is actively growing so that it is absorbed through the roots.  When grass is dormant it would not absorb and translocate the product throughout.

Depending on your location and the pest your are trying to treat for, application of Grubs Away can be anytime between mid May and mid August.  We recommend contacting your local cooperative extension office to ask about insecticide timing for the pests in your region. These offices are an invaluable resource when dealing with pests and most have a master gardener and an entomologist on staff to answer pest insect questions.

Is Grubs Away safe to use in areas where pets (dogs) play?

My dogs lay in the grass as well as eat the grass. I need to make sure your product is absolutely safe and will not harm my pets.

A
Grubs Away is safe to use where pets play. Keep in mind you are watering in the treated area into the thatch layer of soil. Pets are safe to re enter the area after it has dried.

Q
Why is Grubs Away Insecticide better than Bayer Season Long Grub Control?
A

We do not like to say that products are better than others. The Grubs Away Insecticide is a professional grade product and does contain a higher percentage of the active ingredient than the Bayer Season Long Grub Control. Each bag of the Grubs Away Insecticide will treat 20,000 square feet as well.
