How deep do you need to place the Milky Spore?

I have a lot of clay in my lawn and sometimes have trouble getting a 4-5 inch soil sample.


You should use the Milky Spore Lawn and Garden Dispenser for the correct application method. You will apply one shake of the dispenser in spots every four feet in rows four feet apart. This is considered a checkerboard pattern. The Milky Spore is then activated with watering or rainfall.  Milky Spore can be applied any time the ground is not frozen. That being said, the spore can only reproduce and spread when grubs eat it. If there are no grubs at the time of application the Milky Spore will not be able to reproduce and move through the property.
