    Good product, bad label??

    By Baj on 07/12/2012

    The product is very, very fine. At the recommended setting on our Scott's drop spreader, it dispensed extremely quickly. Consequently, we did not get the coverage we had anticipated. We're not yet sure how well it works on the areas covered. Even though it was dispensed prior to July 15, we are seeing damaged areas on our lawn. Perhaps because of the unusually hot summer, we should have put the product on earlier. That said, DoMyOwnPestControl.com shipped the product quickly. We have no problems with the company, just the labeling. We would purchase from them again.

    True salvation for a poorly neglected yard

    By Shirley on 07/30/2012

    Verified Purchase

    I'm not sure what's worse, the grub/Japanese Beetle infestation in my newly acquired yard or the neighbors who cultivate every weed and pest! Imigold is a great alternative to Merit. These products are the ONLY solution to grub infestations! Delivery was super quick and as always, DoMyOwnPestControl.com is a pleasure to do business with.

    Easy Application

    By Anonymous on 08/01/2013

    Verified Purchase

    I am holding back one star simply because it will be a year or two before I know how effective this product was combating my Japanese beetle problem. I plan to do another application next year. I was very happy with how ImiGold spread using my broadcast spreader. There were no clogs at all.

Q
I've read that imidacloprid kills honey bees, which I have, and a big Japaneese Beetle problem. Options?
A
The problem with the honey bees is when they gather nectar and pollen from treated plants. In this case you will likely be treating your lawn and not flowering trees and bushes which should limit the exposure to the honey bees. The other option would be to use Milky Spore to control the grubs. Milky Spore is not harmful to anything except for Japanese beetle grubs. Milky Spore Powder is a natural, safe, effective grub control product that can remain in the soil for up to twenty years. This is an OMRI certified organic control of Japanese beetle grub control that is safe to use with other herbicides and insecticides that is safe to use around birds, bees, pets and fish and around pools and ponds. Milky Spore Powder contains Bacillus popillae, a bacterium that kills grubs by multiplying inside the grubs, causing them to die. The spores are then dispersed in nearby soil, which is how the product is able to exist in your soil for so long and even comes with a ten-year guarantee.

Q
What is the best time of year to apply ImiGold 0.5 G?
A
The best time of year to apply Imigold 0.5 G is fully dependent on the type of vegetation you are treating and the pest you are trying to control. For the correct usage information you can read the product label or contact your local cooperative extension office and request to speak to the master gardener on staff. The master gardener can usually provide you with the correct application times for your region.

Q
Does ImiGold 0.5G cause grubs to be more active in 3 to 10 days after 1st treatment?
A
We have never had any reports that the Imigold 0.5G causes grubs to be more active after the treatment. It does make sense though that after an insect such as a grub comes into contact with an insecticide that they will start to behave a bit differently as many of the insecticides interrupt their nervous systems making them more active than normal.

Q
What grub control product can be sold in ct. that contains merit?

grub control that contains merit that can be sold in ct.

A
Hi Yield Grub Free Zone can be sold to CT. Also, Adonis 75 WSP  which also contains Imidacloprid can also be sold to CT. If you still want Merit, most folks will just have the product shipped to a family member or friend outside that restricted state and then they will ship the item to you.
