Lawn grub control

Asked July 15, 2013, 12:26 PM EDT

I have had grub related lawn damage each year.the affected areas show several grubs when the turf is pulled back. When is the best time to apply Grubex or a similar product. Do you have a product that you consider effective for this time of the year? Thank you. Parameswaran, Terrace Drive, maple glen,Pa

Parameswaran,
I have included a link for lawn management that has a calendar on when to apply your control. It is too hot now to do it, the calendar recommends mid August thru mid October.
We are not permitted to endorse one particular product, but read the labels on things like Grubex and similar products to determine which is best suited for your issues. Proper timing for application will help greatly.
