Japanese beetle control

Asked October 20, 2017, 3:48 PM EDT

Is it too late to apply grub control for the Japanese beetle? I live in Auburn, Mi, near Bay City, and we have not had any cold weather yet.

It is certainly not too late for you to apply a grub control curative (as compared to preventative) product which can be done normally through late October. See the link below to an article that provides you with the info on how to determine if you have a grub problem, and if so, which products are effective at different times of the year. Hope that helps!
